I was very satisfied with my experience with Dr. McCarty and his staff. The Bone and Joint surgical facility is pleasant and clean. The nurses were wonderful and Dr. McCarthy did a beautiful job on my carpel tunnel and I will be back to have my right hand done after I heal from my knee surgery witch will be 3/30/2020.

Dr. Nissen was was very pleasant to deal with. He took his time and worked with my daughter trying to figure out an ongoing ankle problem. The office was very nice about answering phone questions as well as following up with her physical therapist to make sure everyone was on the same page.

Dr. Nissen spent a great deal of time with us explaining details of the injury and options that she had. Comforted her fears and did not pressure her into making a decision. He was great, compassionate, thorough, understanding, could not have asked for a better experience. My mind is at ease knowing my daughter is in the right hands.

Dr. Nissen is very respectful and easy to talk to. He makes you feel cared about and listens to your concerns fully. Explains everything throughly and in a manner I understand. I have had multiple surgeries by him on a few joints and things always get back to normal with the rehab process. By far the best doctor I have.
