I would recommend Dr. McNamara to anyone! I was referred to him by my family doctor for a second opinion about my knee.. His staff was very professional and friendly, they made me feel really comfortable. Dr. McNamara was also friendly, patient, professional, and concerned. He show me all my MIR exams & explained everything that was going on in my knee and what he would like to do to help me. I took his advice & am on my way to a great recovery! He is one of the best!
