I started seeing Dr McKindsey this year and I will continue to see her. She is very direct. She addressed all my concerns and kept it simple. It may seem as though she is rushing or isn't listening, but she is. I saw her for a follow up and to my surprise she remembered the personal details of the previous visit. She doesn't cottle or sugar coat and I appreciate that about her.

I would not recommend Dr. McKindsey. She was my doctor for over 10 years and she completely betrayed my trust today. I came in because I recently became aware of complications with a procedure I had done 2 years ago. Rather than doing my own research on the internet, I decided to go to the doctor I trusted to gather more information. She completely interrupted and dismissed my concerns without allowing me to ask my questions. Then she stormed out of the room before our conversation was over.

Dr McKindsey is a wonderful and competent doctor. I was lucky enough to have her deliver my baby when I showed up to the hospital just in time to give birth. Although I arrived too late to receive an epidural, she was so calm and in-charge, it made the whole experience a great one. She is a very good surgeon too, which isn't often discussed about OBs, but is very important! I had a great post-partum recovery and would highly recommend her.

Dr. McKindsey is extremely attentive and thorough. She is always asking if I have any questions/concerns, and follows up with personal phone calls. Dr. McKindsey is a wonderful doctor!
