I had micro vascular decompression surgery in November 2017 with Dr. McLaughlin. After suffering from trigeminalneuralgia for 7 years, I am now off of all meds and pain free! He has changed my life!

Provider makes you wait hours even if you are the first patient. He always has people listening into your conversation with him - either remotely or in person. He does not fully answer questions about care. Some staff is friendly while others are abrupt. Lacks attention to detail.
