I underwent Tympanoplasty and Mastoidectomy recently. I am very pleased with Dr. McGrew and the care I have received. I expected pain and have experienced none and very little discomfort. Will recommend him to my friends, family and co-workers. I will definitely use him for any future issues with my ears.

I have been his patient for 15 years. He has operated on me several times, treated me for many infections, and has worked diligently in trying to save as much of my hearing as he can. He has always been compassionate, informative, and kind to my children, who would often accompany me to appointments and operations. There is no one I would trust more with my life. 5 stars because that's the maximum - deserves 10.... Highly recommended! Dr. McGrew puts in the effort to discover the issues and with his skills, knowledge and experience, tackles them like a linebacker in an attempt to bring quality to your life. Our family is very grateful to him.

I have been a patient of Dr. McGrew since 2016. He has performed two surgeries on me, and I can't say enough good about him. He is very informative and spends time explaining my condition and treatment. He is VERY compassionate and I am very thankful for him. I would recommend him to anyone.

Doctor was inattentive, never introduced himself until I asked him What's your name? never seemed to genuinely care about my condition. Appointment was rushed and my questions were never answered. very rude and terrible experience.

Physician seemed quite competent with diagnosis, but was brusque and impatient in explaining condition to me. His manner was not easy to deal with.
