I had the pleasure of working with Dr McLean in SICU at Brookwood for several years. I have been a patient since 1990. He is also sees everyone in my family. He takes time to listen. He is very knowledgeable and caring. His staff is very professional. They treat you like a human being and not a number. He has never disappointed me. I have recommended him many times and would not hesitate to send anyone to him. As long as he is in practice, he will be our doctor.

Dr. McLean is a wonderful doctor who actually spends time listening to you and what you have to say. He is NOT a "hand on the doorknob" kind of person. He is competent, caring and has a terrific sense of humor . He's the best!

I’ve been to Dr. McLean twice now, and while he is very knowledgeable and a good doctor, his office is run so poorly that it barely even matters. Each time I waited two hours from the time I arrived to when he saw me (I arrived 5-10 minutes early each time). I also was told to get bloodwork immediately after an appointment which was incorrect and resulted in a $470 bill that I’m fighting with the insurance company over. Good doctor, terrible staff.
