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.

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.
