Dr. McRae spent at least 20 minutes with me and answered all my questions. He was sincerely interested in providing me with the best medical care possible. His team of nurses and administrative personal were very professional, courteous, and friendly. Even though I am over 4 hours away, it is well worth the time to excellent medical care.

Look, you can't really find a much higher quality physician in the field of cardiology than this guy. He listens to you and is willing to put you on the path to making yourself better! I have yet to encounter any sort of negative experience after seeing the good doctor for almost 2 years.

came in for three year check up, all staff and dr mcrae were timely and thorough during my examination. i am moving from nashville area and wanted to have final check up with dr mcrae - he listened to what has been going on with my, medically speaking, discussed a recent (non-heart related) illness and hospitalization and subsequent recovery. we reviewed my history and medications and he made a couple of changes pursuant to findings during my visit. he offered his assistance, if needed, for a recommendation for cardiologist in my new location. very professional and caring - coincidentally, my youngest son is finishing his cardiology fellowship and going on to complete EP fellowship at George Washington Medical Center in D.C. dr mcrae has followed his training though the years during my visits and always shown a keen interest in his progress. nice to have the personal as well as professional relationship. i will miss his care and friendship
