Reviews for Robert J. Carney, MD, FACP, FACC


When I visited Dr Carney he explained every thing to me were I could understand. I wouldn't ask for a better DR.

   — Doris Wright


Dr Carney took the time to explain what is going on with the veins in my heart, even giving analogies. He went over my numbers, explaining them thoroughly. Then after answering my questions, he came up with a plan to proceed that I have no doubt will add years to my life. I am resistant to traditional medicine but when I left, I knew his plan of action is exactly what is best for me! His entire staff was exceptional as well. I highly recommend Dr. Carney!

   — Susan McMullen

I have seen Dr Carney annually since performing my triple bypass surgery 12 years ago. He has always given me clear and helpful evaluations and advice. This visit included a treadmill stress test and again he gave a candid and encouraging consultation

If you want to know who is the best cardiologist in Tyler, Tx. Ask a nurse. They will tell Robert Carney! the absolute best!

   — Bonny Flemister


I have used Dr. Carney since 1999. My last office visit I was early for my appointment (3 weeks) however the office worked me in that day.



I have been a patient for several years and had family members that were patients in the past. Dr. Carney is an excellent physician and I totally trust him with my care now and in the future.

   — Linda Smith


I had come at end of day to speak to his nurse& she asked Dr Carney if he had time to see me! He agreed and we visited about need for medication change. This was ultimately at 5:30 when we finished up!!! I was very impressed and pleased with the visit! I would heartily recommend him!!!

   — Rmhorses


I went to his office to speak with his nurse because I had been unable to get a call back. Instead I was seen for an office visit at 4:30 pm!!!! It was incredible! N

   — Rebecca Mercer


Dr. Carney is the first doctor to take the time to explain, in detail, my health issues and the treatment needed to resolve what could be resolved with me. The appointments are not rushed, he discussed treatments and options in every day terms I could understand. His staff is knowledgeable and courteous. The wait times were minimal. Highly recommend.

   — John Crites


Dr Carney is very personable. He is never in a rush to get to the next appointment. Best cardiologist ever !!

   — Mark Connelly


Dr. Carney is very personable and informative - very focused on "me" and specific about his thoughts and recommendations relative to "my" needs. I very much enjoyed meeting him on my first visit even though the news was not the best.

   — Dale A. Ross


Going to be in the USA for only a short time. His staff found a way to get me in quickly and my wait time in the office was minimal. He took the time to look at labs that I brought with me and based on my symptoms, recommended a change in meds. Hoping this change will get me back to a good place!

   — Rick


Dr Carney is so cordial and helpful. He takes time to explain just what kind of tests he’s going to do and why. Told me what he thinks my problem is , but wants to rule out other possibilities. We appreciate his honesty and willingness to answer all of our questions.

   — Judy Logan


Saved my life!!!!!!

   — Gaylon Weaver

   — Nancy


Thank you Dr Carney, I know I wouldn't be here today.

   — Ray Tullos


He is a great doctor. He actually takes time to talk to you and answers all your questions. I just had a nuclear stress test and he went over everything with me. He is brutally honest with you and says DO THIS AND I WILL HELP YOU. I have high LDL cholesterol and he is helping me get it down. I have recommended him to several of my friends and will continue to do so.

   — Lyle R. Witherell


Informative, knowledgeable, caring

   — Rudy Miller


I just had a three year check-up with Dr. Carney, following up on my cardiac arrest on March 9th, 2018, and a subsequent open heart bypass procedure in September of 2018. This appointment went very well and he was pleased with the steady progress I have made. All my lab results were in really good shape and he encouraged me to continue doing what I am doing—eating healthy, daily exercise, and continue taking the medicines he has prescribed for me. I was very pleased! Dr. Carney is very straightforward, but is also compassionate when it comes to dealing with me and my family! Glad to have him as my cardiologist!

   — Rick Ellis


Loved Dr. Carney's bed side manner. He is really down to earth and I didn't feel like I was being rushed out of the office. He answered all my questions and took my concerns to heart.

   — Marita Rudd

   — Arthur T. Glenn


My wife and I use Dr. Carney as our cardiologist. He not only takes time to evaluate us completely but goes the extra mile to explain what he is doing. Every time we have an office visit, we leave confident about our health. There is no doubt in our mind that he is the best cardiologist and would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Carney does a great job. He is straight forward and ensures that we understand his recommendations and diagnosis. He explains and has a wonderful chair side manner. He is in depth and provides really great feedback. It is obvious that he enjoys what he does, and appears to really care for his patients. In today's world of really fast doctor visits, he is a welcomed delight in how much time he takes with us as his patients. We are VERY fortunate to be in his care.

   — Lawrence Dow

   — Harold C.


It was a pleasure and a breath of fresh air to deal with a doctor who is true to his profession and is able to explain your medical condition in a common sense way. Reminds me of my family doctor I had as a child who was truly concerned about your well being. He is very knowledgeable which is backed up by his experience, and he is never too busy to listen to you. From the time you enter the door until the time you leave, every person encountered from the front office staff to the back office staff, instill a feeling of well being knowing that you are being cared for in the best possible fashion.

   — Jack Smith


Dr. Carney was very pleasant and spent a good deal of time with me on my initial visit as a patient with him. He asked the pertinent questions and answered all of mine. I feel very comfortable trusting him with my heart health. He was very down to earth and easy to talk to.

   — Joyce Holt


Office was very efficient and timely. Dr. Carney himself spent time talking to me, reviewing my past history, and explaining what was going on now and what needed to be done. I felt very comfortable and at ease and he spoke in a language I could understand, which I appreciated. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a cardiologist in this area! He came highly recommended to me and I found out why today.

   — Molly Brady


Nineteen years and 9 months ago I first met Dr. Carney in the ER at Mother Frances Hospital after having a heart attach. I had to have a triple bypass and he and Dr. Lee saved my life. i have followed up with him yearly for almost 20 years and have had no problems and by bypasses are still good. I had an office visit 11-29-20 and he always has time to explain what you need to do to have the best life you can, he really cares for his patients and I appreciate him.

   — Linda Poteet


Arrived 15 minutes before my appointment and did not have to wait very long. Staff is very friendly but Dr. Carney is the GREATEST !!! I recommend him to all my friends. He makes me feel relaxed and answers all my question in a manner that I can understand. I trust him.

After a heart attack, I was assigned a cardiologist at the hospital. As soon as I left the hospital, I chose another one. After the third try, I found Dr. Carney and was completely satisfied! He is the BEST! He takes all the time you need with him, always explaining treatment and medications and answering all of my questions. I would (and do!) highly recommend him!
