Had a tumor the size of a tennis ball that had to be removed. Dr. McGrail was amazing. He not only explained the procedure to me but also explained what to expect post surgery. I never felt rushed and he took all time I asked for. A rare experience these days.

No sir-ee. The staff is so polite--I was an hour late (gasp) coming in from VA and everyone acted like it was just fine

The wait and see option was probably not an

Dr McGrail operated on me in 1997 as an emergency brain bleed, aneurysm, on a late Sunday night, early Sunday morning. After going 12 days with it not being detected, he saved my life. Now in 2016 I am still here to thank him.
