In the last six months I have had other health issues and was hospitalized 3 times at UVA hospital related to a fall and head trauma. Dr McCarthy was updated and I was scheduled for a visit with him earlier than my usual semiannual visits. I appreciate his concern and followup visits.

I was diagnosed with long cancer and referred to Dr. McCarthy by my Pulmonologist "If I had cancer he is who I would go to". His office called me so we (and my husband) could meet and talk. I really appreciate this. I have another appointment next week where he will give me my treatment plan (he is presenting my case to the board of cancer specialists this Friday so they can come up with the best course of action. I have tremendous faith that I will receive the best care and treatment by a cancer specialist and the team he works with. Considering I have cancer, I consider myself so fortunate. I know this will go well.

Yes, I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. McCarthy to my family and friends. Dr. McCarthy is a very kind, caring, knowledgeable, and compassionate physician. Dr. McCarthy is a friendly MD who listens carefully, offers suggestions, and gives the patient a sense of confidence. He is friendly and projects optimism and enthusiasm to the patient. I have had several visits with Dr. McCarthy (each including my wife) and she shares my views of Dr. McCarthy. I have a very rare type of leukemia and Dr. McCarthy has given me the confidence to effectively deal with it. Dr. McCarthy has the skills and professional experience to effectively guide me.

I have been under Dr. McCarthy's care for about 5 years. He is without a doubt the kindest, most knowledgeable doctor I have ever had. I can't say enough good things about him. He REALLY CARES about his patients. He remembers who I am every time I come in and he takes the time to sit and talk about my overall well being. He truly treats the whole person. I give him the highest respect and recommendation possible.
