I transferred from another Dr., and was very pleased. Dr. McKay listened to concerns changed my meds, i've gotten more sleep than in the last 10 years. when I contacted him thru patient portal the response was very prompt. He has listened to my past experiences with auto immune issues and acting on my symptoms

He didn’t listen to anything I said and since I was paying cash he didn’t seem to care either. He dropped me after the first appointment saying I only had mild pain and sleep disturbances. After all the tests and trouble I’ve gone through it’s obviously more than that.

There is a raccoon in a dog crate in this office. Yes -- I said a raccoon. Evidently the raccoon was rescued by a PA and is now being brought to the Oklahoma Center for Arthritis during the day.

I went to Dr McKay for over 12 years before I left Tulsa. I found him to be professional . He always answered all of my questions and explained things thoroughly. For awhile, until he expanded his practice, he was always swamped. His nurses always returned my phone calls, answered my questions and were always willing to help. I would recommend him highly. He helped me so much.

He is a egotistical jerk that doesn't listen, care, and thinks he knows it all. Has no personality, acts like he's in another world when your talking to him. And his assistant Amy is no better. I can't get my scripts, or even a simple phone call back from a nurse. This is not my first time with a Rheumatologist I have seen a few over the last 25 years. I recently moved to the Tulsa area and I had to find the worst possible dr in Tulsa. Please keep looking, don't waste your time.
