Dr McGahan asks questions, listens to complaints and concerns and makes great presentations of options/findings. I'm quite comfortable with his knowledge/care/skills.

I’ve had no experience with sports doctors and Dr. McGahan was great. I’m not quite how to describe my situation but I had a tumor in L5 that without his help would have never been diagnosed. He listened to me while other medical practitioners didn’t. Thank you Dr. McGahan

I would highly recommend Dr. McGahan. He is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to talk to and ask questions. I had a bit of a panic attack before my surgery and Dr. McGahan came in and was very reassuring, and I really appreciated that.
