My son has adhd and we accidentally forgot his meds the day of the consult so he was extra difficult. They did a good job dealing with a difficult teenager.

Dr. McCarthy and his STAFF TOP NOTCH!!we made a great decision- they still do benefit discounts with you and they treat you like humans than these other Ortho places think they are so great bc they have a reputation and so they can't give % or they don't care how people's financial situation is like. Dr. McCarthys people care and work with families. BRAVO TO THEM!!!

Dr. McCarthy is very patient and thorough. He takes the time to consult with the patient and the parent about what he is seeing and the plan going forward. He shows a genuine interest in achieving the best result. Great at making conversation with the kids.
