Review of Dr. McKay

-

I met with Dr. McKay ( along with my son) today 4/18/19 to discuss my possible renal cell carcinoma and a clinical trial. We both were completely blown away by her relaxed unhurried manner, her extraordinary explanation of my particular situation and CT scan, medical concerns, friendliness, good humor and overall expertise. She described a plan that made sense to both of us to which we agreed . Neither of us have ever experienced a more satisfying medical office experience discussing

Review of Dr. Saenz

-

Dr. Saenz is an incredible doctor. She is smart, caring, and has a lot of integrity. I will be forever grateful to her for caring for me while I had cervical cancer. I am stunned by the negative reviews and would view them w/ skepticism.
