Dr. McGehee is very good at explaining options. He answers all of my questions and has a pleasant manner. My only concern is that all the medications and /or creams prescribed have such grave side effects that once filled I do not feel comfortable using. Anything that states it can cause heat failure, renal toxicity, or death I won't use. This is an essential part of my visit, finding options to assist with inflammation and pain but not at the risk of heart failure or death. It actually listed these side effects! This is the reason for the four stars.
