What People Say About Dr. Melissa McKenzie, DO

This is a very knowledgeable, caring doctor. I feel lucky to have been referred to her, as she is the first specialist to take a look at my problems and say, " We really must get you moving again; you can't just be spending all your time in bed." Shy was also very sympathetic towards me regarding some shabby treatment by other, prior doctors.

She maybe a good doctor but her office is overwhelmed and I felt rushed through my appointment. I feel like some of there staff and maybe the office as a whole are apathetic and rude. They are the only office within 200 miles. If you have something serious, if you have the ability DO NOT waste anytime, go to the city.

She's rude, no bedside manner. Won't go over your test results with you. Just condescending!

I am a physician myself. I travel 150 miles each way for my appointments and it is worth it.

KInd, caring, thorough, great bedside manner - all very good - informal, but professional. She exhausted all possible causes of my condition without causing me unnecessary alarm. I have sent several friends to her.

Horrible, rude woman with zero patience and no bedside manner. Refuses to refill needed prescription for seizure medication knowing full well patient will have seizures without it. Rude office assistants also. She should not be allowed to practice in Eureka or anywhere for that matter.
