I had a nerve stimulator put in with Dr. McKeag for my knee pain that I had after a total knee replacement. What a difference!!! I sleep better, I walk better, I can use stairs again and most of all a better outlook on life again. He listened to my concerns and we found the best plan that worked for me. We are lucky that he comes to our Specialty Clinic. The one thing that really sticks out for me was he asked if he could pray with me before my surgery. ABSOLUTLEY!! Dr McKeag you are wonderful!

Dr. Mckeag is the best. though I've had some complications with my leads after surgeries(not his fault). he's always had the best bedside Manner and done everything he can to take my pain away. I love that he prays with you before every surgery you can tell that he really truly cares about his patients. Been with him only 7 months and he's done more for me than any of the other doctors have done in 3 years.

Pushed right away to do spine stimulator, did procedure with little to no relief. Was told on my last visit "You need to stop feeling sorry for yourself." I appears that now that he has made his money off of me, my pain is just in my head and my quality of life is no longer a concern.

Although Dr. McKeag's nurses were wonderful, he explained little during my procedure and didn't wait for the numbing medicine to kick in prior to the injection. Follow up appointment was scheduled almost a month later and was with his PA. It took longer to take my vitals than it did to visit with her. She was a kind person, but hadn't even looked at my chart or records and asked why I was there. A total waste of time and money and now have to wait another month until another injection.

Dr. McKeag is a very kind, gentle, Christian physician with exemplary knowledge of pain management. Dr. McKeag encourages success in less is better with pain meds while prescribing the needed narcotics and non-narcotic pain management. I have the best pain control in 6 years, thanks to Dr McKeag's guidance and knowledge.

I have had several procedures with Dr McKeag and I feel He has responded appropriately to all of my needs and responded with helpful ideas and followed through with treatments as needed. He comes to outreach clinics and uses the facilities to the maximum benefit of his patients.
