Not often in life do you find a surgeon like Michael j McNamara.he is the most brilliant Dr. And everyone knows it. The best word to describe him a perfectionist. His bedside manners are better than a mothers. I held off having surgery out of Fear, know I know better.The entire staff from Holly to Jalene to Marylou, thank you. Michael j mohanna.

When Dr. McNamara was assigned to my mom I was a bit worried because the only review I found was for bad bedside manner and that is a big deal to me. HOWEVER, from day one Dr. McNamara was kind, had a GREAT bedside manner, talked to us not over us and explained everything. Answered all our questions and was very understanding with our concerns. I would recommend him and would go back to him with future issues. THANK YOU for all your kindness!!

This is his second surgery he has done for me. One was on March 30, 2016 for my appendix to come out, then the second one was May 22, 2017 to Take out my gallbladder due to gallstones. He has done a great job with both surgeries the good thing is he is a perfectionists what he does. Very friendly and caring and answers all your questions and concerns you have before and after your surgery. I would go back to him for sure in the future if I need to.

Dr. McNamara is excellent at what he does! I had surgery with him almost two weeks ago and it couldn't have gone better. He was patient, informative and more than willing to answer any questions I had. He does not rush the patient out of the room and instead is very attentive and makes the patient feel very comfortable with the situation/plan going forward. His staff (and nurse!) is very helpful and kind as well. Would highly recommend Dr. McNamara!
