I would recommend Dr. Timothy McCarthy to my family and friends. He has a Good Bed Side Manner. His Staff is Very Friendly. One of the staff members, even put a new arm on my broken reading glasses, without me asking. She said she wanted to, because I could still use them, while I was waiting for a new pair. Often, she says she tries to help patients in this way, If she can. She stated sometimes the office has extra pair of glasses, that may haven't been picked up by a patient. Therefore, the office has extra parts to help repair glasses, while the patient waits for a new pair. The office was very clean and peaceful. I belive new patients, will like Dr. Timothy McCarthy, his staff, and experiencing visiting his office.

11/8/16 - Just left my first appointment with Dr. McCarthy. Just marvelous. The staff were professional and courteous; I felt extremely comfortable from start to finish. Dr. McCarthy's terrific bedside manner and willingness to clearly answer all my questions made for a sensational first impression. If necessary, when my insurance switches, I will pay out of network fees to see him - pun intended.

His office and waiting rooms were very clean. All of his staff were very nice and helpful. I took my 8 year old daughter for an appointment. They all were very polite and treated her well. They explained everything that they were doing before they did anything to her. I have set another appointment in 6 months.

Was shocked with the dilating of the eyes and no burning!! New technology is great. Lady in front even gave me disposable sun glasses to leave with, unlike my other place. No pressure whatsoever with them wanting me to buy glasses from them. The front desk lady, the assistant in the room, and the doctor were all very pleasant. A big Thanks to them all.

He gave me peace of mind. I went in for an emergency consultation and the staff was very nice, I didn't have to wait long to go in. Doctor's assistant was very nice and helpful. The doctor examined me and explained to me what the problem was. I have a follow up appointment and I'm keeping it. I absolutely recommend Dr. McCarthy!
