I will NEVER go to Dr. McKiernan ever again, she is rude, condescending, and the first doctor I've ever been to, who won't even listen to heart and lungs, instead, she stands very close to the door, does not read any medical history...I'm surprised she's still working as an MD.

May 05 2020

Review for Dr. McKiernan

Dr. Nguyen has always listened to my questions, needs and opinions. After a very damaging surgery by a local doctor, Dr. Nguyen supported me in pursuing a second opinion and was sympathetic and instrumental in helping me through my ordeal. His staff has always been great in responding as well.
