This is the second time I've seen Dr. McKennan. Both visits have been helpful. He was informative, explanatory, friendly, and proactive. Next, I'm going to make an appointment for my mother to go in and see him as well!

I am a 72 year old man who has worn hearing aids for 35 years. Over the years my hearing degraded to the point where I started exploring cochlear implants. Unfortunately, I did not qualify for an implant until this year. I met with Dr. McKennan and found him to be very personable. He explained the procedure clearly, and in layman's terms, which I appreciated. My surgery went well and I am now adjusted to life with sound again. My wife is very happy with the results. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. McKennan.

I was referred to Dr McKennan for surgery on my Acoustic Neuroma on Feb 26. He was very knowledgeable, kind, explained everything in detail. He does this surgery as a team with Dr Benscoter. Both are wonderful surgeons in their field and I highly recommend them!

To sum it up, I have been blessed to successfully undergo two surgeries at the hands of the amazing and almighty Dr. Mckennan to reconstruct my ear canals. He’s a good-natured man of his word who is very skilled and excelled in his profession. He always treated me in a professional and respectful manner and has earned my trust and admiration. He deserves the utmost respect and recognition, and is worth any drive or wait. I confidently recommend him to anybody and ensure you’re in good hands!!!

I feel bad for those that did not have the FANTASTIC experience I had. 1. Scheduling was what would be expected of a busy PROFESSIONAL. 2. Staff was incredibly, easy to talk to and VERY Positive. 3. Dr. was friendly and not only talked my wife and I thru options. He showed pictures and the XRays to explain what and why I needed and what result should be. I had virtually lost hearing in my left ear and could not wear Hearing Aids. Dr. rebuilt my ear now have about 80% of my hearing back.

Have seen many ear specialists around the country and would have to say that this Doctor is the best!! He is bright, informative and a super kind individual. Since I already knew most of my ear issues it was a relief that he confirmed them and treated with the minimum surgery that was necessary. Even if you need to wait a bit for him He is worth it!!
