Patient Comments (5)
in Southbridge, MA |
I have undergone three back surgeries with Dr. McKay, two minor and one major. I always felt that she did a good job explaining the circumstances to me and had good bedside manner before and after my operations.
Easthampton |
I would not go to Dr. McKay again. She made me feel like I was wasting her time. She was short and condescending. I live with back pain mostly all the time and went to her for advice, possible new treatments, etc. She treated me like I was an unimportant part of her day.
I understood the long wait time due to Dr Comey(very good Dr)leaving the practice. After 2 appts due to long wait time, I finally saw Dr McKay. She spend ~5 minutes with me, she was certain I had no issue. I'm still baffled by how she determined this, when I never took my coat off, nor did she examine me, just my notes from 10 months ago from my past surgery. I expressed that I feel I may have another problem, she said "unlikely" and that was my experience with Dr McKay. I go to boston now.
Westfield, Ma |
Spent about 10 minutes with me before scheduling surgery.. Had a bad outcome, she was not interested in helping. 17 months out from surgery have not been able to return to work, on disability.
in Westfield, MA |
Took very little time and interest in my condition, was supposed to follow up with me after review of MRI, never followed up with call.
