BEST manner of any doctor I’ve seen

First of all, I was totally stoked on FINALLY getting a female Orthopedic Surgeon. On top of that, she has the BEST manner of any doctor I’ve seen. She took the time to explain, in detail, what was happening in my knee and how it was going to get fixed. I’m completely confident she will get me back to running in no time.

Absolutely amazing

Dr. McCarthy was absolutely amazing. I actually came up to Reno from the Bay Area because I had heard such great things about ROC. Dr. McCarthy confirmed everything I had heard. I will continue to make the long journey up to ROC for years to come thanks to the amazing service and knowledge.

Huge shoutout to Dr. McCarthy!

Huge shoutout to Dr. McCarthy!! My shoulder is doing great! What a wonderful team I had! I’ll be looking you kids up for the next one! Love and prayer, stay healthy.

Extrememly grateful

I greatly appreciate Dr. McCarthy and the whole experience with ROC. After being injured I was seen at a ROC Express on Monday, had an MRI on Tuesday, met with Dr. McCarthy on Wednesday, and then Dr. McCarthy performed knee surgery to repair my torn quadriceps tendon on Thursday. Given the circumstances with COVID-19 I was extremely happy that Dr. McCarthy could take care of my injury so fast. I felt like Dr. McCarthy and everyone connected with the whole process made my care a priority and I am extremely grateful.

Positive energy

Dr. McCarthy and her assistant were awesome. They both had positive energy, were knowledgeable, thoughtful, and empathetic. Also truly appreciated how the check-in counter was continually cleaned due to COVID.
