Dr. McCarthy is one of my favorites! His knowledge and care has been instrumental with tackling an incurable cancer (Multiple Myeloma). I am reaching my 4year anniversary of a stem cell transplant and still in remission.

The man is a great doctor. Lack of compassion? Hell no. He has a great sense of humor, something sorely needed when treating people so ill.

Pre and Post Bone Marrow Transplant visits. Dr. McCarthy explains diagnosis and procedures very well. He is a straight forward, tell it like it is Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone for a Multiple Mylenoma or Acute Myleloid Leukemia condition.

May be a brilliant docter however, Dr. McCarthy lacks compassion and bed side manners. His inability to accept criticism speaks volumes about his character.
