Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mackenzie "I approach my practice from a personal, deliberate, and unique set of guiding principles that form the foundation of how I treat my patients.  I believe that every patient deserves my full attention in order to understand his or her specific medical condition and the context in which they have sought my medical expertise.  The doctor/patient relationship is the core driver to ensure patients are given the most effective, personalized, and conservative care.  Patients are more than a number in an assembly line in my practice.  My philosophy as a physician is to treat each patient as if they were family with respect, kindness, and concern from the moment they walk in until the moment they no longer are under my care.  My patients partner in evaluating their condition and treatment options.  Patients make an educated decision regarding the most appropriate care without pressure after a thorough examination and explanations given in plain language."

Dr. MacKenzie is great, however, his nurse is a witch with a Capitol B! She is rude and has an attitude which makes you want to vomit. Unfortunately if you want to see Dr. MacKenzie you have to put up with her attitude! Otherwise find another doctor.
