About Me

Care Philosophy

I believe in partnering with my patients to keep them healthy, and especially enjoy caring for generations of family members. I take time to genuinely listen to my patients, as I find the best treatment comes only after enough time has been taken to fully understand their medical issues and causes.

I had a large tumor on my jaw that had popped up practically overnight on Sun am. Called first thing Mon am to be seen & they could only get me in with PA. The PA was very concerned, we waited 30 min for McLain to come in for consult. She barely looked at me, not a word said to me, just a few to the PA, didn't even touch my face. She left exam room & PA chased her down the hall. Pathetic bedside manner. Thank god oral surgeon I found never let me sit in waiting room they were so worried about me

1. Dr Mclain herself is a very good person but systems around her, such as accessibility to her or to her staff and getting prescriptions re-filled is almost a nightmare now after being taken over by Northwest hospital system. It is a huge hassel now for the patient. Also, total charges billed to insurance just for a physical have ranged $ 6-7 thousands. Northwest system has lowered the quality of practice and raised the cost of her services. Survey questions should include these 2 points.
