Dr Mckay and her staff are very professional and friendly . Im never stressed about seeing her. She's been my Dr for years and she's compassionate, experienced and she genuinely cares. She treat a problem with pain meds without knowing the cause.she treats the problem not the symptom. I like that about her but sometimes I wish she was a little more leinant, but then she wouldn't be as amazing!

  Aug 22, 2023
Dr. Mckay is very interested in her patients and always takes the time to suggest other things that might be of help to me. She is thorough in explaining options as well as my health.

  Aug 22, 2023
My initial appointment was canceled due to provider emergency. I rescheduled. Waited 1hour to see the Dr. The appointment seemed rushed. I felt the Dr. Had to make up for the hour delay so it seemed disconnected.

  Aug 21, 2023
With each new visit to Dr. McKay, I become more impressed with her knowledge and compassion. And her MA is equally impressive.

My big complaint is no Phlebotomist in the Oregon City West Linn area. It is unacceptable to drive to Meridian Park. I may switch to Providence providers if this doesn't change.

  Aug 17, 2023
EVERYONE in this office is extremely friendly, courteous and knowledgeable . I feel fortunate to have Dr. McKay as my PCP. She is very personable, pleasant, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable!

  Aug 8, 2023
Provider did not listen to patient. Patient provided info on forms as well as verbally, yet Provider took it upon herself to lecture the patient. I feel like Provider needs to learn moe about communicating with young adults - with respect and no judgment.

  Aug 7, 2023
Time seems to be the critical aspect of appointments...whether or not you are finished talking with the Dr. I did not receive any treatment or problem advice but am supposed to come back every two months to deal with other issues. I feel that I need some help sooner.

  Aug 7, 2023
Best provider I have ever seen. Dr McKay is very well educated and has a wonderful bedside manner. She basically saved my husband's life

Dr. Mckay is the most, caring, and compassionate physician I have ever had. She has helped me so much over they years that I have been seeing her. Dr. Mckay had helped me in so many ways. Mentally and physically. I am thankful to call her my primary care.

  Jun 15, 2023
Dr McKay listens, and hears, which I appreciate, it's not always that way with doctors, for instance, there are several doctors in the Legacy System I would never see again.

  Jun 13, 2023
There seemed some confusion about why I wanted a sit down with Dr. McKay. I learned the definition of what had been mentioned in a bone density test: degenerative disc disease. My doctor didn't know of my concern. This was a new diagnosis. I now have answers and a plan to manage this condition.

  Jun 8, 2023
Wait time for a procedure. I only have one hour as I have a driver on limited time.

  Jun 5, 2023
These are simply the best health providers anyone could ask for.

  Jun 1, 2023
Overall extremely positive I was surprised when I checked in the person who helped me was not as friendly as most of the others always are.

  May 22, 2023
Everything was fine except it is difficult to get an appointment timely. Rescheduling an existing appointment took another 6 weeks to the next available.

  May 16, 2023
