About Me

Dr. Diana Spahlinger McCarthy’s father was a physician, and after accompanying him to work on Take Your Daughter to Work Day in elementary school, she decided to follow in his footsteps. Dr. Spahlinger McCarthy chose to become an OB/GYN after her labor and delivery rotation at the University of Michigan Medical School.

 “There were so many things that make this specialty appealing, but the most compelling was the relationships that physicians form with their patients,” Dr. Spahlinger McCarthy said. “When a woman chooses an OB/GYN, she isn’t just choosing someone to do her annual exam, she is trusting you to care for her family.”

Dr. Spahlinger McCarthy’s clinical interests include minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, contraceptive management, infertility, management of abnormal bleeding and low and high risk obstetrics.

Outside of work Dr. Spahlinger McCarthy enjoys swimming, cooking, baking, gardening and spending time with her husband. She also enjoys traveling, and while in resident training at Duke University Medical Center, Dr. Spahlinger McCarthy spent six weeks in Tanzania working at the Kilimanjaro Medical Center.

Dr. McCarthy is just wonderful! I am a patient who, up until this point in time, really only comes in for annual exams. She takes the time to review my chart before coming in, and I never feel rushed with her. She listens and makes sure that all of my questions are answered.

Wonderful doctor and nursing staff. I had no contact with registration staff.

11/30/2023

The Dr. And her staff were phenomenal. From checking me in to getting my appointment done. I didn't feel well after my appointment and they let me lay down until I felt good enough to leave. They brought me water, ibuprofen and one of the assistants fanned me with a folder because she couldn't find a fan and wanted to help me feel better. First gyno appt in a very long time so I was nervous, but this was such a great experience. Very glad I chose to come here.

10/10/2023

The kindness of the Medial Assistant and the doctor was outstanding and very comforting . So appreciated and kind of them.

10/03/2023

The doctor performing and explaining the ultrasound went slow during his exam and walked me through it. He cared about my comfort in a way most people using a speculum do not. I have never had anyone offer to put the speculum in slowly, which is kind of insane if you think about it. Thanks for this basic thoughtful move.

10/02/2023

This was a very difficult appointment for me and I was frustrated with my treatment and course of action up to this point. Meeting with Dr. McCarthy turned my situation around and I felt so much better. She made me feel protected and safe and cared for. She was eager to help me as soon as possible and was able to follow through on that. She took time to listen and relate to me and I’m so grateful to have met with her during one of the worst things I’ve experienced.

04/03/2023

I was impressed by my entire experience at WakeMed Obstetrics & Gynecology in Cary. The front desk employee was extremely friendly and welcoming, and checked me in and answered all my questions. My appointment was at 1:00 PM and I believe by 1:02 I was being led back to my exam room. This was my first appointment with Dr. Diane Spahlinger McCarthy and I walked away very impressed. She took the time to get to know me (on a personal and medical level) and answered all of my questions around my medical concerns and priorities. She did not make me feel rushed, and I actually got the feeling that she wanted to be there in the room with me. We came up with next steps together, and I felt like it was a collaborative discussion. I would recommend Dr. Diane Spahlinger McCarthy is anyone!
