Dr. McGehee lll is an excellent doctor. He goes above and beyond. I had both shoulders operated on by Dr. McGehee. He took the time to listen and address all my concerns. He is very compassionate and caring. He enjoys his job and takes pride in everything he does.

Dr. McGehee is very easy to communicate with. He takes the time to be sure that surgery is the best option before recommending surgery. Well pleased with the surgery he has done on my knee.

Dr McGehee has performed surgery on both of my shoulders, and now they are better than new! Whenever I have any orthopedic issues, I always go back to Dr. McGee, who is actually assisting me presently in a potential arthroscopic procedure on both of my knees! He is the best, I refer him to anyone...more
