He won’t admit it, but Philip McCarthy, MD, is in the business of saving lives. He gives his patients hope; he gives families hope. He’s a world-renowned physician who has dedicated his career, his passion and his life to providing advanced stem cell transplants to hematological cancer patients. He’s well respected by his peers, well loved by his patients, and one of the most caring (and funny) individuals you will ever meet.
