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.


Dr McCarthy is a wonderful physician - friendly, knowledgeable, understanding and a very good diagnostician. Exactly what I needed and is hard to find these days.


Dr. McCarthy is a very thorough and thoughtful care provider.


This was my first obgyn appointment and I came in feeling nervous, but quickly i became comfortable because of the care I received. Dr. McCarthy is so amazing and I’m so glad I can trust her with my care!


Dr. Spangler Mcarthy is very caring and gentle.


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


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.


She was wonderful and so thoughtful! Her professionalism is unmatched!


The Doctor and The Staff are one of a kind! They are all great!


They all were


Hello, I was very pleased with the service and politeness with the staff kindness they showed.


Dr. McCarthy always goes out of her way to make me feel heard and respected as well as giving me realistic expectations for my care and any plans that have needed to be made.


Kari, my MA, was fantastic-very personable and caring. I appreciated her warm bedside manner and making me feel so at ease.


My encounter with every individual in this practice was excellent!!


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


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.


Dr. Spahlinger McCarthy was extremely nice, gentle, kind, understanding and informative.


Appreciated all the time spent with the physician. She was very personable and allowed time for discussion


Dr McCarthy answered all of my questions and we went over all of my concerns. We discussed different options and opinions.


Dr. McCarthy is patient, kind, and caring. I felt listened to, and cared for during my visit. She made me feel comfortable and did not feel rushed. Thank you Dr. McCarthy for your outstanding work.


Its just good to have her back following maternity leave.


I’m just waiting on my test results everything was just fine at my visit


I had a pleasant experience with the doctor. She explained everything to me took her time out was very caring. The visit was great.


I’m [] and have seen a LOT of GYN/ OB doctors. She was THE best ivd ever seen.


The entire staff, from check-in to check-out, was exceptional. Everyone was friendly and efficient.


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.


Dr. Diana Spahlinger McCarthy is outstanding in every way! She is an awesome physician and person. I appreciate her being my doctor and highly recommend her!

The fabric gown and sheet were amazing!


Great doctors and nurses


Dr. McCarthy went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and include my husband in the process.


The nurse or MA were super honest about possibly not having an instrument that was usually used but had a great substitute ready to go. Removing the [] was not painful in anyway.


Dr. McCarthy is fantastic. She truly takes the time to get to know her patients on a personal level and help them. She really listens and is very knowledgeable. I highly recommended her!


Dr D McCarthy is great. Never rushes, is interested in you as a person, not just as a patient.

Dr. McCarthy is amazing at just sitting down with me and just chatting. She does a great job at addressing any concerns or questions I may have and makes the visit very personable. She is just so kind and has never made me feel rushed.


Yes Dr. McCarthy is always excellent at what she does!


Dr. McCarthy took a lot of time to answer my questions and have a discussion. I never felt rushed while we were talking.


The entire visit was seamless


Communication with Doctor. Answering questions.


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!


I love how concern and caring she is


The care and personal connection I felt as a patient was great.


The whole experience was great! Was in & out quickly. Highly recommended to others


I’ve never met a doctor as caring and kind as Dr. McCarthy. I was having a hard and emotional day and she paused to check on me as a human and administer care.


Dr. McCarthy is excellent. Interaction with the receptionist was extremely limited and not positive.


Dr. McCarthy is the best!


Dr. McCarthy has been my OBGYN for the past few years now. She was my OB throughout my first pregnancy and birth of my beautiful [ ] daughter. She’s is extremely personable and really puts you at ease. Speaking with her is like spending time with a close friend who also happens to be a medical professional. I cannot speak highly enough about her level of care, expertise and personal attention. Whatever you’re paying this woman- it’s not enough!


Dr McCarthy is the best! Every time I see her she is amazing.


I absolutely love Dr. McCarthy. I feel very fortunate to have her as a doctor. Always acts so interested in any problem I might have . Thank you!

Dr McCarthy and her RN were Awesome! They both gave me their undivided attention and listened to everything I said. I've already recommended her to two of my friends!


All the wakemed staffs, nurses and doctors was outstanding.


The doctor was very warm and welcoming. Her demeanor was very ushering.
