Horrible experience. Apparently im not allowed to talk about my medical issue because everytime i would try to say something i would get shut off. Rude as can be with his responses. I am mentally and physically overwhelmed with my medical issue and been dealing with it for 11 years and can't get a solution. Hopefully i can find someone to help me so i can get back to enjoying life.

Worst experience ever with a "Specialist". He did not take time to listen, did nothing to address existing symptoms.His bedside manners were horrid. Waste of time and for someone with life affecting pain & limited mobility, it was like pouring salt in a wound. I felt completely disrespected, dismissed & ignored.

Dr Mackey is the utmost professional, is very confident almost cockey but that means he knows his stuff. I asked questions he answered short and to the point. I almost pushed my way through appointments and ultimately surgery within a week. He is kind and smart and as his staff said when I asked if he was good if he wasn't good he wouldn't be so busy. My surgery was laminectomy at the St Thomas spinal surgery center all excellent outcomes. I cannot say enough. Thank you Dr Mackey

I felt dismissed. Time spent waiting for the dr was three times longer than the time he spent with me. Ordered an mri, no word on a scheduled appt. It's been a month. I came to this doctor due to extreme chronic pain and limited mobility. Left the office frustrated and unsure of what to do next.
in Lavergne TN |
I have had two spinal fusions with Dr. Mackey. But please pay attention to this! The first one was done in 2001. That first surgery enabled me to exercise and lose over 100 pounds. The second surgery was in 2015 and not I am 3 months out and I feel GREAT. I love Dr. Mackey and when I first realized that I would need another surgery, I knew I could trust him entirely. He is not just a great doctor but I feel like he is an advocate for me. Throughout the entire process, I feel like he cares
in Kevil KY |
This man along with a Neurosurgeoon did surgery on me 16 years ago. Even my chiropractor has been amazed at the outcome and how well I've done with screws, rods,fusion , graft etc. I'd recommend him to anyone.
