I bless the day Dr Carney became my doctor....I have been going for 40 years and not one complaint. He is a man of great integrity and the best doctor I have ever seen. He is the kind of doctor other doctors bring THEIR families to. He takes the time to listen and explain to his patients and genuinely cares. I cannot say enough about Dr Carney or his staff! Linda his nurse is a dedicated highly educated caring lady that has been part of his team for a long time and is there for the patients 24-7....she is the best and I also cannot tell you how she has helped me and all the patients through the years and been there for us! Noel Chisholm. Patient for almost 40 years
