Atlanta, GA |
I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. He is not a doctor for the right reasons in fact he drops patients like there garbage.
in Wausau, WI |
Dr. Mackay assessed my condition, engaged specialists to validate the severe nature of my pain, communicated treatment options. He was focused 100% on my well-being during the process. Dr. Mackay performed spinal surgery that immediately eliminated my severe pain and recurring back issues. Dr. Mackay's team was professional and caring through out the process and acted as advocates for me during the health care approval process through post surgery care. Dr. Mackay and his team are the best.
