A great first visit to Dr Carney

My wife and I came to Dr Carney because of her promotion of the Fuhrman diet. In 40 years of going to doctors, I have never had as detailed and comprehensive a first visit (or any visit) as I did with Dr Carney.

Amazing Doctor

Dr. Carney is an amazing Doctor who took the time to listen to me. She was not quick to prescribe medication that I did not need and offered both nutrition and lifestyle suggestions that fixed the issues that I was facing.
I am thankful to find her.

Cares about your well being

I am 61 years old and had been a patient of dr. carney's for about 3 years when I moved to a city about 70 miles away. I miss her and wish I could still have her as my primary physician. I have read the comments posted here and decided that I should give my point of view. I have had many doctors over the past 61 years. I found Dr. Linda Carney to be the most empathetic and caring physician of all of them. True, she may be late for her appointment with you from time to time, BUT she always gave me the time I needed when she got to me and apologized greatly for my wait. I can understand one wanting to be seen when their appointment is due, BUT, if I was really sick and needed help I would want my doctor to take the time necessary to help me -- that is what she does. Yes, she is religious and she is vegan. She does not force her standard of living on anybody. She just tells her patient what she thinks is necessary for one to get well. Yes they play religious music on the TV in the waiting room, and Dr. Carney is obviously believes in God. First, the music is played very low and the melody and scenery on the TV is very peaceful and soothing. I much prefer it to other types of media. Also, it is instrumental and not voices, so it really doesn't matter if it is religious or otherwise to me. I happen to also believe in God, so I am happy that she does to. In fact, I would bet that Dr. Carney prays for her patients every day. I can use all the help and I can get! Bottom line: If you want a Doctor that cares about your well being, she is Great. I have had a few minor billing (insurance) problems, but her office has always handled them in a caring manner. I highly recommend Dr. Linda Carney for whatever ails you.

Comfort and Care

Dr. Carney is one of the few physicians that I consider it a privilege to visit. She always has shown a genuine concern and compassion in everything she does. A positive light in not only the medical field but in the community as a whole, she is a driving force of happiness. The staff members are also infused with the same character as Dr. Carney; each has shown courtesy and compassion. I would recommend Dr. Carney and her staff to everyone.

Deeply and Truly Caring!

I had the pleasure of being under Dr. Carney's care last year while in Austin. I have never before met a physician who so deeply and truly cared for her patients, taking the time to understand the issues and not just wanting to get you in and out with a bottle of pills. I wish i lived in Austin so that she could be my full time doctor!

Dr. Carney and her staff are top notch

Well here I go again, I just wrote a new review of Dr. Carney and it has disappeared into limbo.I just want to start by apologizing to Dr. Carney and her staff for the mean and untrue statements I had said in my former review. I was in pain and totally fed up with the whole medical establishment. I had been mislead and lied to by another person at my Orthopedic Dr.. Long story short, I broke my foot and went to Tex Med Clinic because I knew they had X-ray machines and I was pretty sure my foot was broke. They were great there and gave me a referral to an orthopedic surgeon to make sure I did not need surgery. My visit with Dr. Hassan was pleasant and he gave me the choice of getting a plaster cast or going with an orthopedic boot so I could bathe. I chose that one of course. I had received pain medicines at the Tex Med Clinic and when I ran out and needed a re-fill they said I needed to call my Orthopedic Dr. to obtain futher pain meds being that he was the one taking care of my foot. I called there and was put through to the nurses phone line and left a detailed message. I waited all day to hear back, finally late that afternoon I called the practice again to see if she had gotten my message. I talked to the receptionist and explained my situation. She told me straight up that Dr. Hassan did not prescribe pain medicine and that I could have the pharmacy fax over the refill request but that it would be denied. I was very confused being that he is a surgeon and did not prescribe pain meds? I asked her what I was supposed to do she said " That's not my problem". I hung up in tears and confusion. I then decided to call my Primary Physician Dr. Linda Carney. It was by then 4:00 in the afternoon. The receptionist was very pleasant and told me to come right in. How many Dr.'s would see you that fast even though it was an hour before closing. That is one of the wonder-full things about Dr. Carney, if you are her pt. she will take care of you. I explained to her what I had been told by the receptionist at Dr. Hassan's practice, she was as confused as me. She told me that she was worried about my liver functions being that I had taken alot of the medicine, and that the Tylenol in that could hurt you. She did not give me pain medicine that day and I think that is why I wrote the bad review, I was in so much pain and could not get any relief from my Dr.s, Dr. Carney told me to come in the next morning and give blood for labs, so she could check my liver. I went, and she gave me a prescription for pain, I thought it was not quite enough to handle the pain I was in, but it was better than nothing. I want to apologize for the things I said about her and the staff. They have been nothing but nice to me, and always helpful and friendly. Dr. Carney is a very caring Dr., and while I am not the ideal pt. to have, she has put up with me and for that I am grateful. I would recommend her highly if you want a Dr. that truly cares about your health and will try and get you to follow her advice. I think where we have Knocked heads the most is diet. I am not vegan nor vegetarian and I don't want to be. I respect her opinions, and I hope that from this day forward she will respect mine. Dr. Carney and her staff are top notch and once again I aplogize for my statements.They were said in frustration that had nothing to do with her practice. Buda finally has a wonderful female doctor and anyone raeading this should call her if you need a Primary Dr. she is wonderful as is her staff.

Dr. Carney and staff are great!

Dr. Carney has definitely changed my opinion of doctors and the health care profession. Until just recently, I have been averse to going to the doctor for anything. However, I just moved to Austin and needed my blood pressure and cholesterol meds refilled and just happened to contact Dr. Carney's office (in my insurance network). I was able to get in fairly quickly and she reviewed my family history and the meds I was on and was reluctant to refill my meds without doing a complete workup on me. I agreed to all that she did because it was so vitally necessary given my family history and the diseases they were afflicted with. She is a doctor that believes in educating and resolving medical issues at the root of the problems instead of just treating symptoms. She has worked with me to change my diet and to live a healthier lifestyle and for that I am truly grateful! I would not hesitate to refer her to anyone interested in finding a doctor who genuinely cares for the patients' health and well-being.

Dr. Carney gets 5 stars. Yelp gets ZERO.

I wrote a review for Dr. Carney, but for some reason, it is not on here anymore. If I knew this website only posted negative reviews, I would not have wasted my precious time writing reviews. I wonder how many others were removed? Hmmmmmm.

Dr. Carney is a fantastic Doctor

Yelp keeps taking down good reviews for Dr. Carney - it is frustrating they are only leaving up a few bad reviews, because I know MANY people who have now left reviews - and they are now gone. Dr. Carney is a fantastic Doctor, caring, patient and really tries to actually help you reverse conditions rather than just prescribe and have you leave. If you are interested in getting better - go to Dr. Carney, if you are interested in prolonging your suffering with lots of medication, that end up doing nothing - find a minute clinic or another place that won't care as much. My husband and I both trust Dr. Carney a lot and appreciate that she is one of the few doctors left who are interested in healing not in making tons of money from prescribing and letting people go with out any real help.

Dr. Linda Carney is not a conventional doctor

Dr. Linda Carney is not a conventional doctor. If you are looking for a doctor to prescribe medication to treat chronic illness and comfortingly ignore the root cause, then Dr. Linda Carney is not the doctor for you. However, if you are interested in real health, by correcting the root cause of the illness, then Dr. Linda Carney is that doctor.

Most of the negative reviews complain that she wants to convert you to Christian and vegan. The Christian complaint is untrue. I am her patient and religion has never been mentioned or referenced. Since I was already vegan, I'm not sure about the vegan complaint, however, it makes sense to me that she would not want to waste her time on a patient who continues with a toxic diet and then wants her to prescribe medication to treat the diet induced illnesses.

After becoming her patient, my wife went vegan and all of her chronic illnesses are rapidly receding and most are already gone. Medications, she has been on most of her life are no longer needed. Her energy and "feel-good" levels are on the upswing. After years of Dr. Carney style health management, I am now [at the age of 61] healthier, no aches or pains anywhere, feel great, have the energy level of a 10 year old, am lighter yet more muscle mass, stronger, more agile and capable that when I was 20. At 20, my health was typical average.

Simply put; if you want real health as opposed to drug dependent health, Dr. Carney is that doctor.

Extremely thorough. One of the better ones.

Although I have never sought care from Dr. Carney, I have interacted with her several times on a professional level. As a professional in the health care industry and one who has interacted with 100's of primary care providers, I can say, without doubt, that Dr. Carney is one of the better ones. Why? Because she is extremely thorough... her practice, managed by her husband, Sean, is well organized and the staff are well-trained and extremely pleasant. I am sometimes disturbed by some of the PCP practices I visit... unorganized, terrible staff and, more often than not, the doctors are more concerned about volume and reimbursements than truly understanding their patients' needs. Dr. Carney and Sean are good people and they both genuinely care about the well-being of their patients. It is so rare to be able to say that in this day and age. Buda/Kyle/South Austin is extremely lucky to have such a great provider.

Far beyond the traditional call of duty!

I posted a review of Dr. Carney after my second visit on 7/19/2013 and gave her five stars. New insight gained since that time suggests an update is in order. What I have come to realize is that until meeting Dr. Carney, I had never actually witnessed a "real" doctor or even considered the concept. Previously, I would have considered the concept, as I now understand it, something of a fantasy or movie character. Every previous doctor I have known, even ones with excellent "bed-side-manner", is all about profession.

I believe a real doctor is one who passionately devotes their life to the health and well-being of others and is not limited by profession, establishment, standard procedure or thinking "inside the box". A real doctor cares for people with eyes-wide-open instead of blindly writing prescriptions per pharmaceutical marketing. A real doctor seeks out the root cause, instead of masking the condition with treatment and drugs.

I have witnessed Dr. Carney caring for patients (including myself) far beyond the traditional call of duty. Examples include extended office visits, house calls and educating patients about the cause, prevention and cure of chronic diseases. I have witnessed her crash-course educating herself on subjects outside her field of medicine and curing patients (including myself) where numerous specialists have all failed.

It appears that the negative reviews stem from the desire and familiarity of conventional treatment as this requires the least effort on the patient's part. An overwhelmingly high percentage of health issues, however, are due to lifestyle and many people are offended to hear that their lifestyle is degrading their life and making them sick.

With no actual comparison to any character, Dr. Carney's practice reminds me of what I take away from the movies "Doc Hollywood" and "Patch Adams": the vision of a highly attentive doctor with real experience coupled with a love for their patients as if they were their own family.

From the heart...

Dr. Carney is serious about teaching patients to save their lives! So, if you are finally serious about taking charge of your health, you must enlist her help in your endeavor. Never, in 58 years, have I had such a thorough, informative, satisfying experience in a doctor's office. She has addressed all my issues including cardiac, diet and pain management wholeheartedly and now has me back on the path to lifelong vigor. Enough to keep up with my grand-kids, at least. She has even convinced my "meat and potatoes" husband of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle! Your search for a competent and concerned doctor who administers professional yet personal care should end with Dr. Linda Carney. But, be fully prepared to follow the doctor's orders and she'll bless your heart like she has mine.

Going the extra mile!

Dr. Carney is truly a caring, concerned doctor. I first went to her for some digestion issues that I was having. She worked with me over several visits and with various symptoms until she was able to help me identify the root of my symptoms. I am now feeling much better and no longer have the worries that were starting to weigh on me. She and her staff are wonderful!

I appreciate that she gave us "tough love" about the choices were were making.

I'm confused by the negativity as well -- my husband and I love Dr. Carney. We are very grateful that she helped rein in my husband's high cholesterol through dietary changes, and I appreciate that she gave us "tough love" about the choices were were making. It's not always easy to hear, but definitely necessary and we are much better off for it! So few doctors are knowledgeable about or willing to discuss nutrition with patients, and I am so glad Dr. Carney takes that approach.

She offers a lot of information and is very thorough, which I'm sure can seem overwhelming, but I've never felt rushed, ignored, or left with unanswered questions. I also like that she offers non-drug treatment options when appropriate, as I prefer to save medication and antibiotics for when I truly need them.

We have always had great experiences with the staff, and we've been able to get last-minute appointments easily. As others have mentioned, there are religious decorations and reading materials in the office, but despite being initially weirded out by it, I have found that they exist solely in the background (and religion has certainly never come up during a visit).

The Airrosti practice that she partners with has been nothing but top-notch as well, and they have treated us both for numerous acute and chronic injuries.

I can't thank Dr. Carney enough for empowering me...

If you want a pill to fix what ails you, Dr. Carney probably isn't the doctor for you. If you want someone who will help you truly improve your health, then I highly recommend her. I'll admit to being highly skeptical of all the diet changes that Dr. Carney recommended, but the results speak for themselves. She explained that part of my problem is probably genetics since even my 40-year-old sister has high blood pressure and high cholesterol. But I followed her advice, changed my diet and lowered my blood pressure and cholesterol in just months without medication. Plus, I dropped 20 pounds without even trying! I'm still not 100% where I want to be on my diet (that's code for I still cheat too much), but I continue to get better and better. I can't thank Dr. Carney enough for empowering me to take control of my health.

Yes, she often runs behind schedule. But that's because she takes so much time with each patient. I can't imagine someone who cares more about her patients.

I Get Better and Better

Dr. Carney has been the only provider who has ever taken on the responsibility of helping me to manage my care and my health! While I have sometimes had a hard time accepting the hard truth that she has delivered, under her guidance I have strengthened my immune system, ended the chronic annual 4 sinus infections that have plagued me for years, narrowly missed a cardiac event because of her vigilance and adamancy that I not ignore that funny little tingling in my left hand, and lost weight.

Giving up animal products has not been hard, although I still struggle to change my cooking habits and know what to fix for myself and my family. As a life time carnivore I can readily acknowledge that accepting a vegan diet is at the heart of the solution to my improved health. Introduction to appropriate reading materials through Dr. Carney's library has helped me intellectually to understand the negative role of lifelong habits on my health and accept the need to change them. To say that Dr. Carney and her team have saved my life would be an understatement. When I follow her direction I get better and better rather than older and older.

I have more energy and sleep better than ever before!

I have to agree with Kate T. who said "If I could give Dr. Carney (and staff) 10 stars I would!"

Since I adopted the plant based diet she recommends to her patients, my weight, cholesterol and blood pressure have dropped and I have more energy and sleep better than ever before!

After becoming frustrated with my current Kyle-based physician and his staff after an incorrect and potentially dangerous misdiagnosis, I decided to seek out a physician who more closely mirrored my own belief that given proper nutrition, moderate exercise, stress management and sleep, the body will heal and maintain maximal health. When I began my Internet search, lo and behold, Dr. Carney!

She is quite thorough with her patients, particularly when they first are establishing with her practice. Some may find it frustrating that she requires you to obtain 5 years of medical records and bring them to her office. But this is so YOU have access to and can review precisely the information she'll be receiving. Believe me, she is worth the extra effort.

And she openly shares and discussed lab results and reports with you. She makes sure you understand. If, because of her wealth of knowledge, she begins to overwhelm you with information, simply ask her to slow down and better explain what she's saying, and she will.

During the visits I've had with her, Dr. Carney has been quite thorough, much more so than any other general practice doctor I've visited. This may mean a wait in her waiting room, but the atmosphere is relaxing and when it's your turn, you'll have her full time and attention.

Because I live close to her office, I have the opportunity to avail myself of the videos and exercise equipment she makes available to her patients. How many other doctor offices do that?

Dr. Carney makes no secret about her religious practice but does not at all shove it down your throat. I practice no religion and I am quite comfortable and at ease with her and her staff. If you are religious, no doubt you'll find her approach doubly comforting.

In short, I would recommend Dr. Carney to anyone who is interested in developing a working relationship with their physician, decreasing or ending their reliance on prescription medications and becoming the vital, vibrant person he/she wants to be!
