You'll waste at least 45 minutes waiting to be seen. Another 30 min wait in exam room. It will seem like you're the reason for her bad mood. You'll feel pressure to have neurological tests done (by her husband). Then, pressure to see the in-house family doctor. Caring & compassion are in short supply here with both McKinnons. Staff is friendly, office is lovely, but crippling disease and pain receive little attention. Spend your healthcare dollars somewhere else with interested, caring doctors.

Dr McKinnon took me on as a patient when K & E Medical Group closed down November 11th 2013 and left numerous people without Rheumatology care. Dr McKinnon has helped me to cope with the terrible disease for the last 4 years, she is very personable and takes whatever time you need to discuss your concerns and You don't have to wait and suffer till your next appointment if a treatment isn't working, just call and she will see you and try something different she is the best Rheumatologist yet.

I have been a patient of Dr. Naya McKinnon, at Las Vegas Clinic for over 3 years. I have Lupus with a secondary rare condition. Dr. McKinnon attends to my multiple symptoms quickly and with great sympathy. When she believes a consult is necessary, she provides excellent doctors to review a particular system. I am very impressed by her care and the care and competence of her referrals. Recently we tapered me off methotrexate as it did not appear to be helping much. She doesn't over prescribe

I don't understand the negative reviews this doctor has gotten. I think she is great. She is relaxed and very easy to talk to, and she seems very competent. I completely trust her judgement. Also, I never felt rushed when I saw her.

First, my apt was at 10:15 am, I arrived at 10:05 am only to just now at 11:23 am be taken to the room to be seen by the doctor. At 10:40 am I asked the nurse how long it would be because I needed to make a run that would take 20 mins. She acted like she didn't want me to leave even though she still had 3 patients ahead of me. Left at 10:43am returned at 11:00am. And the dr 10:00 am apt patient was still waiting in the lobby. Moral of the story, quit being greedy and overbooking.

They charge a facility fee for every time you go there ($95 - NON INSURANCE RELATED/ Standard facility fee) ...they also require you to go to the facility in order to refill your scripts so you essentially get hit with $95 every time you want to refill your meds.........now get this, you need a neurologist, well hey you can go to her husband who works out of the same office and guess what..you can pay $95 for a facility fee. Front desk staff are fairly nice but follow up is horrible.

Referred to after a diagnosis of arthritis in my knees. She ordered dozens of tests that were very painful. We parted ways by yelling at each other because after reading what she ordered, I had absolutely no symptoms for what she was testing for. She kept yelling at me that she has training from The Mayo Clinic, which doesn't mean anything if you can't listen to your patients. She also stated that there are few rheumatologists in Vegas and good luck because she knows them all.
