Everything always goes well with my visits.

October 05, 2016

Dr. Carty is an excellent example of the way a doctor should be with a new patient with serious health issues. I would (and have) recommend her to others with similar health problems. She is very professional and knowledgeable. I appreciated her concern.

September 15, 2016

I had a good visit with Dr. Carty considering this was my first visit with her. she made me feel comfortable .

September 07, 2016

Dr. Carty explains options, dangers, and procedures very well and is very open to questions. I was impressed with her willingness to explain, offers to answer questions, and apparent concern that my family and I understood and made informed decisions. My time with her was very much appreciated and I did not mind waiting to see her.

Dr. Carty and her staff were all very efficient and professional during my care

August 31, 2016

Very courteous and caring. Made sure I clearly understood instructions.

August 31, 2016

Dr Carty is above and beyond an expert in her field- she cared for me in a professional, capable, knowledgeable, and extraordinary way at a time events were spiraling out of my control. She helped me feel in control of my situation- she had answers- she took her time to very carefully illustrate and explain every concern and question I had. I cannot recommend her more nor can I applaud her more.
