"I've taken my children to Dr Mc Carthy for 23+ years. I'm a RN and to find someone so invested in her patients is a rare miracle. she is an amazing diagnostician, she is always on top of what's new in health care. She makes you and your child feel like a team to provide best care for your child. When she makes a referral, they are always top notch. she is kind, caring. my children love her and she always makes them feel special. How many doctors tell their patients they love them and give them a hug each visit. I have always recommended her to anyone who is in need of a pediatrician."
