Dr. McKay and her staff always courteous and friendly. Dr. McKay does not rush me; she always asks if there are any other issues after she has reviewed my last visit notes. Her knowledge in many areas of health care is vast. I appreciate her!!!

The only part of my experience as a patient in this office comes from not being able to make an appointment with my primary care physician very often.

She's very thorough and does refer me to another Dr. if she can't help me, a good listener, shows concern. The only problem is she's part time, but since she has little ones, I can understand that.

Dr. McKay performs her job at the highest level of professional service possible. I was nervous about being a male and having a female doctor prior to the first time I saw her, but she has always made me feel comfortable with the situation. I cannot offer enough superlatives about the health care she provides.

the only thing I might comment on is it seems that when you visit your physician these days more time is spent looking at a computer screen then the patient. That unfortunately is a sign of the times however doesn't make it right!

Dr. McKay is very knowledgeable and very caring. I have recommended her to several friends and they are also pleased. She provides excellent care. I do not feel rushed when I'm with her.

Good experience... Visit was about HBP med renewals... Last year I was told this year I needed an annual/Pap smear, etc. I was told that appnt. would be too far out/wasn't mentioned to schedule!... Referral for bone density... many joint & arthritic knee issues to address! Samantha has always been a great provider! It seems there are so many doctor to see to get issues resolved!

Dr. McKay is wonderful. she listens, she never rushes you, she answers questions, and she actually looks at you instead of only staring at the key board. also, so you know, I answered the question about has any one talked to me about my medication in the last three months -Never. I only said this because I haven't been to the doctor in the last three months. When I do come in we always go over medication. This doctor is wonderful.

Dr. McKay and Erin, her staff person, are always helpful and kind when I see them. Dr. McKay was clear that I had bronchitis and provided a inhaler treatment which opened my lungs well. We discussed my cough, and she provided a refill for the med I was taking. Overall, I received the care and advice I needed!
