Patient Testimonial For Dr. Patrick McCarthy

 

Personally, I’ve been very fortunate to meet and exchange email with Doctor McCarthy several times since launching this website.  He has always been very responsive to and supportive of this patient advocacy effort. Furthermore, Dr. McCarthy has performed heart valve surgery on two family friends – Ari Mintzer (aortic valve replacement) and Nina Feinberg (mitral valve replacement). Both Ari and Nina are both doing great!
