Patient Comments (3)
Apache Junction, AZ |
Dr McClain is a very good doctor. His staff that is processing the insurance is very "inefficient" that is making or creating a bad reputation on his behalf. I warn everyone before heading to your scheduled appointment to verify first that your insurance is approved because that doctors office staff will let you know when you are there the day of your appointment. It is very frustrating with very customers service. I hope Dr. McClain will address this issue because it is an ongoing problem.

Very condescending, won't go back, don't recommend.
in Chula Vista, CA |
Generally unsatisfactory because of wait times, and the way the staff treated people. Most striking was when someone in the waiting room asked for help with making a phone call and was told 'That's not my job.' Before I retired, no one in my office would say such a thing. Dr. McClain himself was personable and seemed adequately informed, but nothing spectacular.
