Dr. McClane is truly an amazing doctor and human being. It’s difficult to put into words the appreciation my family and I feel for him. His outstanding surgical expertise and bedside manner are beyond compare and got us through a situation no one ever wants to face. He definitely goes the extra mile. He has continued to be available explaining all aspects of my surgery and recovery. He saved my life and for that my family and I are eternally grateful. If every doctor had his qualities, “What a wonderful world it would be!” Thank you Dr. McClane. Peter Masi October 17, 2019 PS Not surprising, he has an amazing staff, our thanks to them also.

Dr. McClane is a highly skilled surgeon. He successfully respected my large, and small intestines to resolve a serious bout of diverticulitis. Three months later he reversed a ilestomy. I can’t say enough to express my awe at this dedicated surgeons talent. He is a personable gentleman, and in my opinion gave me a new lease on life!

I had an outstanding experience. Dr. McClane is a great listener, extremely thorough, and gives several options. My first visit was at his Fairfield office, and the staff there was very professional.

Not only is Dr. McClane is extremely intelligent and precise in his work, but he is also very friendly and kind-spoken. I was very embarrassed to have to go in and talk to somebody about my digestive "issues", but Dr. McClane makes you feel comfortable and that genuinely wants to help his patients.

Dr. McClane is extremely knowledgable as well as caring. He made us feel comfortable and confident in our choice. He is an amazing surgeon and physician who is also proficient in robotic surgery which is a plus as a lot of colorectal surgeons are not trained in this area. You will be in good hands!!

Very disappointed with overall experience. The office did not care about the patient experience and billing issues. Would not recommend dealing with this office ever again!!! Extremely disappointed with entire staff and Dr. McClane.

Extremely nice and caring. I went in having an anxiety attack. He calmed me down, listened to what my concerns were, and told me exactly what he was going to do, step by step, before he did it.
