Dr. McCarthy ranks at the top of my most favorite of doctors, and I have seen many over the years. He is kind, caring, thorough, patient, willing to listen to my questions and answer everything thoroughly, and in an appointment like this it is important to have a doctor that is reassuring and honest but also positive. He is all of those things!

My most recent appointments were to have blood work and to see Kerin, the Nurse Practioner. Usually, the waiting rooms are quite busy but the care I get I feel like I am the only patient there and the most important one. Everyone is very personable and ready to listen to my concerns. Thank You Dr. McCarthy and everyone in your office.

Dr. McCarthy, and his staff, have made me feel extremely comfortable in their care...and that's not easy to do. He immediately addressed my concerns that I felt surprised that my "hematologist" appointment was at VCS. They are very informative and I love the online portal for messaging and managing appointments.

When I move from Florida over a year ago, I needed to find a doctor for my medical condition. My first visit with Dr McCarthy he was very nice, warm and friendly. He took his time explaining everything. I have been to the Reston office and would not go anywhere else. He us absolutely amazing doctor with excellent bedside manners.

I was referred to Dr. McCarthy by a very well respected physician and I was not steered wrong. A great Dr. that explains things clearly and went what I consider to be above and beyond the norm to ensure I understood my condition and answer any/all questions. I could not be more pleased!

Dr. McCarthy was great. He took his time and so thoroughly explained my condition to me, causes, solution, etc. He asked me a few times if I had any questions. I never felt rushed at all, and typically doctors I've experienced speak really fast, are in and out, and I just feel rushed. Not with this doctor. He took his time, was friendly, and it was a pleasant experience which was great because it was a worrisome topic for me. I definitely recommend him if you have any hemotology needs.

Dr. McCarthy is NOT an oncologist. If you go to VCS, see an oncologist. Dr. McCarthy's paperwork is sloppy, at best. His therapeutic recommendations are the usual chemotherapy cocktails, which are fast becoming outdated by advances in immunotherapy. You can do better.
