What People Say About Dr. Rajalaxmi McKenna, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr McKenna is exceptional. Most specialists I've dealt with are a quick, targeted appt that uses what was past along for actions. Dr McKenna takes NOTHING for granted and does an extremely thorough discovery of your entire medical history. She is also no nonsense and if you don't like that type of personality, get over it, because you're going to miss out on one of the most compassionate and skilled Drs you'll ever see.

My wife saw Dr. McKenna regarding a blood clotting issue. Right from the very first meeting with her, both my wife and I were very impressed by her genuine interest in my wife's condition and her kind hearted approach towards my wife's treatment options. Throughout the course of her treatment, we found Dr. McKenna to be both an expert in her field and a very kind hearted doctor who truly cares about her patients. I have never found a doctor as dedicated as Dr. McKenna. She is awesome!

Dr. McKenna is a brilliant clinician with a heart of gold. I have been seeing her since 1990. She spends a lot of time with her patients as well searching and researching what will be the best options to treat that individual patient. She is never unavailable to care for her patients.

Dr McKenna is quite simply one of the best Docs on the planet. She is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and shares latest medical journals with you. For my testicular cancer she wrote to the specialists around the country to the best & latest treatment available. While you often wait in the office to see her, this is a blessing. I know that like the patients before me, I will also get all my questions answered, all new symptoms thoroughly invistegated, and all the care I require.

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.
