Dr Carney replaced my knee in Sept, 2016. He did an excellent job of prepping me for the surgery and was very caring and interested in my recovery. He continues to follow my recovery. He genuinely cares for my overall health. If I need surgery on the other knee, I will not hesitate to ask Dr Carney...more

He spends the least amount of time possible with the patient. He lacks confidence and communication skills.
