New York |
Dr. McCarthy is an excellent surgeon who genuinely cares about her patients. I went to her 3 weeks after a traumatic injury to my knee and I had already seen 3 other surgeons. She sat with me for a long time (and through many tears), explained exactly what happened and how we were going to fix it....more

She was excellent. She made me feel comfortable with the surgery. The surgery experience at HSS was superb as was Dr. McCarthy! I recommend her to everyone.

Awesome experience. I tore my meniscus, ACL, and MCL. It was a long road to recovery, but Dr. McCarthy explained that it would be long from the beginning but that I would get back to soccer. I am so grateful! I recommend her to everyone!
