Dr. McCarthy is a very nice man, however, if test results doesn't show anything different than before, and the patient is coming in for help, due to breathing issues, he doesn't attempt to dig further to see why symptoms have changed.

This doctor spent more time with me that any other doctor I have ever been to, and nailed the problem quickly. Wonderful pulmonologist. Now, if only his office staff could emulate him. They are just as ugly as he is beautiful.

I am now over 70 years old, and at the age when many physicians tend to ignore most of what I have to say. Dr. McCarthy is NOT one of those MDs. He listens well, is easy to talk to, never rushes through my visits. Answers all my questions thoroughly, in language I can understand. I feel very fortunate to be his patient. Wish all my health care professionals were as kind and competent as Dr. McCarthy.
