I have been seeing Dr. McHale for several years now. She is very attentive to my needs and takes time to answer my questions. I've been very pleased that she will try conservative options before recommending surgery, when they are appropriate. She is easy to talk with and explains things adequately. The office is clean and staff are all great. It is easy to get an appointment and I never have to wait long.
