Dr. McCarthy

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

-- John DiFazio, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. McCarthy is not only a gifted surgeon but continues to care about each patient after surgery. He provided a clear and accurate description of the procedure and the recovery. He (and his remarkable staff) were attentive throughout my preparations for surgery, the surgery itself and after surgery. I was particularly appreciative that Dr. McCarthy was focused on repairing my leaky mitral valve rather than set on replacing it. Dr. McCarthy is largely responsible for the good health I am enjoying now."
