Good appointment. I learned a few things I was not aware of.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
Actual time spent with care provider was very short.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
He had an intern with him to observe and we felt like the doctor was trying to impress the intern, more than tend to my questions and concerns. I didn't feel listened to this time.

Dr. McCarthy is fantastic and I'm happy to have him in charge of my MS health care management.

I appreciated that *Dr. McCarthy printed out what we talked about. I could not have communicated w/my husband what the medication instructions were.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
*Dr. McCarthy is one of the best physicians I have ever had!
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
I did not feel like he listened very well. He would interrupt me and jump to a solution before I had finished what I was saying about my symptoms. He told me what he thought I was doing wrong before hearing my whole story. I have had this disease for over 20 years and know how it effects my body.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
*Dr. McCarthy is amazing. I believe I'm in good hands. He cares and supports. I appreciate him very much.

Dr. McCarthy is awesome - I learn something new about my own health beyond neurology every time I meet with him. He makes scary things - less so.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
Dr McCarthy took time to review and discuss all of my ongoing issues. For a couple problems, he offered new insights and solutions that have not been presented by any other physician I have seen. He is caring and very knowledgeable - a fantastic doctor!

*Dr. McCarthy spent a lot of time with me. We reviewed my history; he explained MRI results and advised me regarding medications. I was impressed and pleased.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Totally oblivious to last visit information. Checked on no history of past findings. I was treated like a person that walked into the wrong office.

Dr. McCarthy is a very good doctor, smart, with lots of information. One comment, he is young, energetic and talk quite fast. I am an older patient, (I used to be just like him - fast) and it might be helpful if he could match his speed to the patient. It's a lot to take in, and I want to hear all he has to say.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
Very nice and caring. Took time.
  Overall Patient Rating - January 2019
I come in with my list of questions and Dr. McCarthy answers these for me. We always speak about effectiveness of medication.
