Dr. McNamara, is very special, caring and down to earth doctor. He tells you like it is, and that is what I want in a Dr. He is super at what he does. I have recommended many people to him. I drive 3 hrs. to my appointments and I would drive further if that is what it took to see him. He is very friendly, talks to you on your level, so you know what he is talking about. Does not use works you have no idea what is going on. I urge anyone before you give up please see him. He has helped me

I had L4 to L5 fusion on January 26, 2016. I was to the point where it just hurt all the time. After surgery the pain was gone and I am back to doing everything I could do before. Dr. McNamara is a straight shooter and a fine back surgeon. I will go back to him without hesitation if the need arises. Thanks Dr. Mac

Dr. McNamara did my first surgery in the 90's. I am in great need of a repair! X-rays proved it at my appt on 3/16/16. Dr. Mc ordered an MRI to get the details he needed. It was first scheduled for 3/23 but changed to 3/29. I was & AM in terrible pain! I waited OVER 2 weeks then had the MRI and was to get the results on 4/4/16. I drive 178 miles round trip. The day of my appt. I was told that I could NOT see Dr. McNamara bcuz I would be a little more that 15 mins. late & HAD TO MAKE A NEW APPT!!

I've suffered excruciating pain caused by bad disc in lumbar region.. I've seen several Drs before seeing Dr McNamara.. Dr Mcnamara, in my opinion, is a true God Called healer.. He is the only Dr that cared about my pain , it's cause, and treating and fixing the PROBLEM, not just the symptom.. Dr Mcnamara has my trust, and my respect.. I've never looked forward to surgery, but I can't wait for Dr McNamara to fix my back.. The pain that runs thru my left leg is unbearable.. God Bless Dr McNamara!
