Patient Comments (1)

Dr. McMahan messed me up more after my surgery than before. I had problems and numbness in places that I didn't have going in to the surgery. When I addressed these concerns, he didn't seem to care at all. Two years later, and I'm still having back, bladder, and numbness problems. Go elsewhere!
