    What an amazing Physician Dr. Mckenna is. He's professional, caring and listens. Highly recommend him if anyone is looking for a OB/GYN. Wait time can be sometime long but so worth it!

    Dr. McKenna is thorough and compassionate. He spent a full hour with me during my first visit taking down my very complicated and traumatic reproductive history. Upon becoming pregnant, he helped ease my fears and point me toward great resources to ameliorate the risks of my pregnancy. The only drawback is that the practice is big, and the clerical staff have proven to be brusque and at times incompetent. Also, the other doctors are not necessarily as lovely as he is, but he may be worth it.

    Both Dr McKenna and Dr Rubin are amazing doctors. Both VERY caring and take their time with each patient which makes the small wait worth while. Highly recommend. I actually pick my health ins based off of what they accept so they can be the doctors for my first baby. Seeing Dr Soviero for the first time this month for my 13 week sono and can't wait to meet her.

    It is often difficult for a Patient to hear that many of their symptoms are due to Psychological stress. Most people prefer an organic diagnosis or a quick remedy. Many people seek extensive testing rather than accepting and changing the source behaviors generating their stress. Many people are told that they have an autoimmune condition during this process. Some do and some do not have a legitimate immunologic explanation for some of their symptoms. It is not a simple matter to sort out.
    If Dr. McKenna can't figure out what's wrong with you he tries to make it into a psychological problem. First sign of an ego maniac...I wound up having an autoimmune disease that gave me the symptoms I was feeling. Not a mental condition. Don't be fooled. Not all doctors are made the same. If you have something out of the ordinary, he's not the doctor for you because his ego will always come first.

    excellent doctor!!!!!

    I am an integrative healing seeker and have always used nutrition, excersize and meditation as a means of self healing. After experiencing some post menopause symptoms that were cause for alarm, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. McKenna. A biopsy was ordered and much to my chagrin, I made the appointment to have the procedure done in his office. I was delighted on the spic&span cleanliness of the surgical unit. No Zika virus looming here. The procedure was fast efficient, and easy. Excellent!
