I see lots of high reviews. My experience was very different. I took the time to carefully fill out all the on-line forms before my appointment, did not seem as though he had even taken a quick look through the forms before our appointment, asking me questions I already answered in depth . The first appointment he seemed caring, empathetic. Didn't make any recommendations until the second appointment, where his demeanor changed and he took on an authoritative, non-collaborative, demeanor.

I have been a patient of Dr. McGee for many years. He is always there when I need anything, and is extremely supportive. He is firm with his treatment plan but can be empathetic and understanding when needed. I recently went through a rough time and Dr. McGee was and still is doing whatever I ask/need of him without hesitation, and for this I am beyond grateful! He is free of judgement, so I don't worry about being open and honest with him. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Dr. McGee is the best of the best. He truly cares about the well being of his patients and truly wants to see his patients succeed. I wish there were more doctors like him in this world because it would be a huge help in the fight against this opiate epidemic. If you're looking for a doctor who takes a vested interest in his patients and feels more like a friend than a doctor, then Dr. McGee is who you are looking for. I would recommend him 10/10 times.

I started seeing Dr. McGee in early 2015. He has answered all my questions honestly, given me great advice and has also told me when I was making a mistake. All things that help make a great doctor. I will be 2 years sober in 1 week, and I would not have been able to do this without his help and guidance.

Simply put for me, life changing. Dr. McGee walked with me through some very challenging times and helped me to learn about, understand, and accept myself like never before. His soul is kind, patient, and yet persistent in its pursuit to help others find peace in their lives.

Dr. McGee is a very very caring and compassionate person. I never feel judged, or that I am just another patient. He truly cares about how well I am doing. I am a former addict, and his treatment has kept me sober for over 3 years now. When I developed depression and anxiety (to the point I couldn't leave my house), he treated me and now I am doing better than ever. I would recommend Dr. McGee to anybody that truly wanted to do the right thing with their life.

Dr McGee has helped me develop skills necessary to maintain sobriety as well as helping me grow into a responsible adult. Other doctors I have seen for the same issue have not been nearly as engaged or concerned with my well being. Dr McGee makes a strong effort to connect with his patients and guide them through life. Treating addicts is not an easy thing to do but he manages very well and I would recommend him to anyone who has a true desire to improve their way of living.

Dr. McGee is a caring and compassionate professional. His credentials are impeccable and his approach to addiction treatment, using current research and the importance of a supportive network, has been the key to my family member wanting to turn their life around. Five top residential treatment programs in five different states and numerous outpatient programs over seven years did not "click" with my family member. Only after he started working with Dr. McGee did things start making sense.

Dr. McGee literally saved my life! He immediately made me feel at ease and divised a recovery plan that is fruitful and still working to this day. I can't say enough good things about my experiences as his patient and will continue on the path of sobriety, honesty and courage that he has shown me. A+++

After working with Dr. McGee for only six months I have found great encouragement and support. He is very compassionate and a fabulous listener. He diagnosed me in one short hour and half first visit. This to me was a bit of a miracle after years of suffering and never having anyone get to the cause. I recommend him to anyone who is willing to spend the time that it will take to do the work.
