She began the visit without saying hello, accused my 9 year old of lying and told him his arm felt “tight” when he told her it felt loose. She THREW a paper towel at him and told him to ball it up and squeeze it. Did not answer any questions. Left the room without saying goodbye or acknowledging the visit was over.

My 12 year old son had a visit with Dr Mckeever and she was very rude to us from the moment she came in the room. Her bedside manner was zero to the point where I was very uncomfortable. She spoke to my son like he was an adult who was in there looking for drugs or something. It felt discriminatory because when we heard her speaking to another patient on our way out, she was a different person - kind and gentle in her tone. With us, she was fast, impatient in her speaking and appeared to be very irritated and like she didn't wanna be bothered. I wish I had asked her while in the room if she didn't want to help us, but I didn't want to appear to be causing a scene. I wasn't sure if she was irritated because we got there late, or if it was because we only have MediCal or if it was a race thing since I'm black and my son is biracial. Idk, but it was a horrible experience. When she left the room my son cried. He felt humiliated and sad and didn't understand why she was so mean to him. :(

Please do not take your child to this woman. She has zero compassion and has no business working with kids. She shamed my 13 year old boy for not walking 2 days after he broke his pelvis in a dirt bike accident. She was so rude correcting everything my husband said and when he tried to help my son up she physically tried to push him out of the way. After the fact I found out that this is common behavior for her. Thankfully we switched doctors but if she is the only option go elsewhere

If I can leave 0 stars I would. We brought our 5 yr old daughter in because she walks on her tippy toes. My daughter was scared and dr mckeever was the most unprofessional dr I've ever dealt with. She was extremely rude! She would cut us off, talk down to our 5 yr old daughter, it took everything in me not to lose my mind on her. I will not ever recommend or will be going back to her. I will be looking for another pediatric ortho and I don't care if I have to drive a few hours to get there.

Miss Trunchbull - My son was a first time patient, we brought a disc of my sons X-rays from a hospital that was taken the day before and the dr could not open the files. She came into the room in a huff, stated the files couldn't be open and that he needed to go next door to get X-rays. I asked if the hospital could send them over and she barked it would take too long. She was rude, unkind, and only introduced herself after I asked her if she was frustrated since she treated us so unkind.

Avoid this dr, especially if it's for your child. I overlooked her insensitivity and bedside manner thinking my child was in good medical hands. I was wrong. Due to her neglectful care , my child was left with a deformed bone next to the broken bone she was treating. She was vague, insensitive, and she's very lucky we found another Dr, Dr. Wiss, who was able to repair the permanent damage she seemed unconcerned about. The medical neglect my child received with her is too much to list .

Dr. McKeever basically is the reason I have no trouble walking or moving my arm. I had two major orthopedic injuries within five days of each other when I was 13 and she treated me both times based on the recommendation of my GP and a surgeon friend of ours. Dr. McKeever not only treated both breaks (to the point where there has been ZERO alteration in my adult lifestyle), but she also went above and beyond what most surgeons would do. I would recommend her to anyone with a child.
