I am 58. needed a good doctor, and I found GREAT doctor ! she listened, looked, and explained everything. she was very gentle in her manner, very patient. took great care to help me be good as new. there is not enough stars here to give her.

At my initial appointment w/Dr. McKee she went over my medical record and at the end of the visit stated "It may take some time, but we're going to put you back together." That is exactly what she has done -and continues to do- and I trust her expertise completely. She explains what physically is wrong or damaged and what can be done to correct the issue or alleviate pain, and step by step she has medically accomplished what she stated she would; I'm confident that will continue in the future.

DrMcKee is a kind compasionate physician. She took care of my husband after a motorcycle accident and he has recovered with minimal residual complaints. As he saw him quickly after his accident and he was taken to surgery to help prevent permanent damage. I have also witnessed the caregiver to burn patients, gun shot wounds and carpal tunnel releases. I would not hesitate to recommend her or request her to be my physician in a heartbeat.
in Clovis, NM |
Could not ask for better treatment! Had carpal tunnel and trigger finger surgery on both hands and they are both as good as new. Dr. McKee is very pleasant and I believe there is no better surgeon, anywhere!

By all measures, objective and subjective, Dr. McKee is exemplary. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable and talented, she is also conversational, patient and compassionate. The practice of medicine may indeed be a science, but Dr. McKee demonstrates an unparalleled level of personal care and concern that is more aptly described as an art. Stated more directly, Dr. McKee is that perfect blend of competence and compassion that every patient hopes for. She is simply the best.

As a retired nurse in the field for 27 years, I'm always watching to make sure everything is done correctly & according to protocol. Dr McKee very much surpassed any doubts I may have had. Her bedside manner is perfect, her knowledge & skill is impeccable. She is, in my opinion, an excellent surgeon with a God given talent. Her staff is friendly & the office is like a caring family.

Dr. McKee is a gift to our area-she is an unbelievably talented surgeon! She listens and explains all options and will honestly answer any and all questions you ask without rushing you. Her surgical skills are exceptional - if you need hand surgery she is the only doctor I would even consider or recommend to family or friends. She is a top-notch caring doctor! With Dr. McKee you are in "good hands" (no pun intended!) Her staff is excellent also.
Dr. McKee performed my carpal tunnel release surgery. I cannot express how pleased I have been with this surgeon. She was informant and answered all of my questions. Everything with the surgery was excellent. Her team was like we'll oiled machine from the moment I checked in for surgery, until the moment I walked out, everything went as smooth as silk. Don't question the decision to use this Dr. She is the best!
