I have had two separate hand surgeries by Dr. McKeon now. She is wonderful. NO complaints whatsoever. Just wish I had not put it off for so long. I had carpel tunnel surgery and the results are fabulous!

Dr. McKeon recently performed my Carpal Tunnel release surgery. My hand had been waking me up every night tingling and completely numb. Since the surgery, I have not woke up a single night with these symptoms! I opted to have a local for the surgery instead of anesthesia and I would highly recommend this. In the OR for 20 minutes total and immediately released to go home. Recovery has been easy and well worth it! I would highly recommend Dr. McKeon for carpal tunnel surgery.

I was having wrist pain. Dr. McKeon listened to my symptoms, performed a thorough hands on assessment, and discussed her findings and treatment options with me. We chose a conservitive approach. After a second visit and injection I am pain free. I'm pleased and happy.

Great bedside manner and knowledgeable. Gets right to the point but doesn’t make you feel rushed. Doesn’t rush to surgical solutions and is willing to consider conservative measures first. Great support team and very accessible for referrals!

I'd been dealing with a wrist issue for > 6 months. I was very reluctant to have a steroid injection. After discussing the options thoroughly with Dr. McKeon, I decided to have the injection. It completely resolved the issue. She was very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. McKeon.

Dr Mckeon is understanding, gentle and very knowledgeable hand surgeon. She has been conservative in giving me options of pain relief to try. If those don’t give the desired pain relief, then she will explain what the surgical option involves. . She is never pushy, but she has been thorough about telling me all the options available before begin treatment. I think she’s great!!! She came highly recommended and had an excellent reputation among the general public!!!
