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!

I'm new to the area and needed to see a dr for a bad cold and possible infection needing antibiotics and the receptionist went out her way to fit me in. I was looking to establish a primary care dr as well. I was recommended by two current patients to this dr. I can totally see why. I'm grateful to have found this group and dr.

I was happy that Dr. McKay saw me right away. [details deleted to protect privacy] I had to come back and see Dr. T_____ the following day. The prednisone he prescribed did the trick.

this was my first appointment with Dr McKay. I had been a patient of Dr Henry who I really liked. I was a little nervous starting with a new doctor. my nervousness was unfounded however. I really like Dr McKay. I felt totally comfortable with her, she answered all my questions and and listened to all concerns I had. I was very happy to have gotten her for my doctor.
