Christina McCarthy, P.A.-C
"As a Physician Assistant practicing cardiovascular medicine, I work with Dr. Richard Wholey to provide patient-centered medicine. Above all else, patient care and patient satisfaction are most important. We strive to achieve these principles by being readily available to patients, having timely follow-up, and utilizing compassionate support staff to address patients' concerns."
Christina McCarthy is a Physician Assistant practicing in the field of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Saint Vincent Hospital-Worcester Medical Center location of Saint Vincent Medical Group.

As part of her approach with patients, Ms. McCarthy strives to put patients at ease and develop a relationship based on mutual trust and understanding. “It’s important to sit and truly listen to the concerns of patients and their families. I ensure that patients have their needs met and all questions and concerns addressed to arrive at a plan of action for their care that we are all comfortable with.”
Ms. McCarthy brings her extensive experience treating cardiovascular diseases and conditions—including collaborations with advanced heart failure and arrhythmia specialists locally and in Boston—to provide outstanding care that addresses each patient’s specific needs. “At Saint Vincent, we offer a wide range of resources for cardiac patients, including surgery and interventional cardiology, rehabilitation, nutritionists and clinics. And when patients require more, we do not hesitate to refer them to other specialists to ensure they receive care they can benefit from best.”
