I just had nasal turbinate and deviated septum surgery last week, performed by Doctor McMahan. I recently became a patient of his and I am already singing this doctor praises and recommending him to all my friends, colleagues, etc. Fantastic bedside manner, great sense of humor. He definitely has made what could have been a bad experience a very good one! Absolutely one of the best doctors and experiences I have ever had with a healthcare professional.
