90 Patient Reviews for Dr. McCarthy

"We instantly liked Dr. Patrick McCarthy. My recovery from aortic valve replacement has been excellent!"

-- John DiFazio, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 11/02/2010

"Dr. McCarthy explained all my options for my aortic valve replacement then entertained questions from myself and my family. We never felt rushed and were very happy with all interaction with Dr. McCarthy. I was able to leave the hospital four days after surgery with no complications since. I would and have recommended Dr. McCarthy to anyone needing valvular surgery."
