There are not enough superlatives to describe Dr McMahon. I’ve had three prior surgeries on my shoulder by other surgeons. He did a total shoulder replacement and I’m now pain free with normal function. Beyond that he is kind and caring.

Dr McMahon had been referred to me by the chief of surgery at AGH. It turns out a previous orthopedist had missed a fracture which Dr McMahon picked up when he redid the Xrays. No wonder I had not had any relief from pain for the 4 weeks following my injury! Dr McMahon also determined I had a defect in my knee, but after one (cortisone?) injection provided total relief (knock on wood) I have not had to make a return visit. What a wonderful doctor, with such a calm, caring and kind manner.

Dr. McMahon is kind, professional, and thorough. I went to him for a second opinion because first doctor recommended surgery (said there was a re-tear on previous rotator surgery ). Thankfully Dr. McMahon did not agree. A shot helped immensely! Highly recommend!

Zero stars. Botched 2 surgeries on my daughters collar bone. She doesn't sleep and has had constant pain for over a year. He refuses to fix it. She will suffer for the rest of her life.

good doctor and highly recommended but IMPOSSIBLE to get hold of anyone at his office. Should you get in trouble, post-op, you have to leave a message and HOPE they'll get back to you in a timely fashion. And I'm talking about during office hours not an after hours emergency. He is a single practioner with a small office staff.

Dr. McMahon diagnosed my shoulder tear quickly and helped me weigh the decision about surgery and what it would or would not entail. During the surgery there was more damage than expected and Dr. McMahon was able to react and clean everything up very nicely. I have very low amounts of pain as i am writing this review only 4 days after surgery. Dr. McMahon has great bed side manner and took the time to explain everything very thoroughly to my wife and i before and after surgery.

Dr. McMahon came highly recommend by another orthopedic surgeon. His compassion and flexibility were amazing! I was to have another surgery July 7th, so had scheduled time off. In the meantime I Re tore my rotator cuff, and due to my job it needed SWIFT attention. I saw Dr. McMahon on June 30th, and he worked it so I could have surgery in my time span! Dr.McMahon repaired my rotator cuff (torn through 2 tendons) on July 12th 2016. I can'tsay enough about how pleaased I am!!!

Nov. 10th of 2015 I underwent a repair of two rotator cuff muscles, the bicep tendon and a total shoulder replacement, all of my right shoulder in one surgery, but two incisions. Dr. McMahon is an amazing surgeon who is warm, kind and considerate of his patients. With the rehab program he set up and with an excellent Physical Therapist, by February of 2016, I could handle my luggage and by April I was able to Golf and throw a football with my grandson. Did I mention that I am 71 years old?

I shattered my right elbow in 1978 and almost died from a horrible motorcycle accident. I suffered with extreme pain, limited mobility and use of the arm. After many treatments and surgeries Dr. McMahon replaced my elbow with an artificial joint 2yrs ago. I now can move and use my arm, best of all no more agonizing pain.
