Wonderful physician! Caring and respectful. She takes the time to answer all questions. Extremely knowledgeable. Empathetic. I am very pleased to have chosen her to direct my care.
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. McKenna is the most dedicated physician I have ever met in my life. As a medical student, I saw her take more time to analyze each and every one of her patients' cases than any other doctor. She is extremely knowledgable, and up to date on the latest research with a critical eye that discriminates between what is valuable and what is a fad.When I found out my closest friend's grandmother had cancer, I recommended her as that is the first person I would personally go to.I truly look up to her

Dr McKenna is a brilliant physician with one of the best bed-side-manners I have ever encountered. She is meticulous in her evaluation of your condition and takes the time to know you as a human being. If you are looking for a 7 minute physician, Dr McKenna is not your doctor.
