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.

He is one of the most caring and concerned doctors I have ever met. His knowledge is amazing. He always has “back up plans” for care to use if needed. He really listens to my concerns and is so good to my family . They also feel comfortable addressing their concerns with him. All of the people on Dr McCarthy’s team are wonderful. I am so grateful for all the care they provide

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