So fortunate that Dr. McCarthy was covering ER Orthopedics when I was brought in. He inspires confidence, treats the patient with care and respect, and provides excellent treatment. Strongly recommend!

Dr. Ashmead asked pertinent questions, made diagnosis of my hand problem, and gave me immediate treatment. He is both personable and professional. I highly recommend him.

Went to have my stitches taken out from surgery two weeks ago, saw Peter and he is so very nice and professional, he was a pleasure to talk to, very positive on how I was doing after surgery. Then saw Dr Ashmead and he also was very nice and positive on my progress after surgery. I would recommend anyone that needs a good doctor and very professional staff. Thanks for all your kindness.

I hurt my hand and shoulder over the weekend and researched hand specialists nearby. I called at 7 when the office opened which is great, and was able to get in to see Dr. McCarthy, late morning. I was relieved to be able to see a Dr. The staff was courteous, I did the check in through my texts and it was a breeze to accomplish. Got into the office with little wait and was so pleased with Dr. McCarthy's manner, knowledge, and communication skills. Had xrays, and everything was just fine, no broken bones. I have not experienced such professionalism and kindness since my older drs retired. I was sincerely impressed and thankful there are still concerned and caring doctors out there practicing!

I went to Dr Ashmead for a second opinion regarding my upcoming wrist surgery. He was very personable and gave me all the information I needed to make my decision.

I found Mr. Dillon professional, knowledgeable and very good at what he did for me---two shots of cortisone into my thumb's joint. Since he was spot on, in hitting the joints, there was next to no pain for these injections. Glad he is on the younger side, since I am a senior and will probably need his assistance in the future. I would feel very comfortable having him work on me again.
