He understood my fear of being overmedicated and going numb (courtesy of my last psych) and is always careful with what and how much he is prescribing. He always returns my calls by the end of the day. He can also get me in for an appointment very quickly and offers telehealth. ALWAYS on time too. I can’t think of a time I waited for more than 5 minutes. I would recommend Dr McKenzie to everyone in need of stabilizing and progressing for mental health conditions. My quality of life has improved drastically since seeing Dr McKenzie.

thank you. I like that they don’t push pills, like that they also provide therapy and recommend books and apps for depression, very eclectic approach, not like an average psychiatrist’s office. Clean offices and prompt response.

I heard this office is starting 3D navigated TMS, first in South Carolina. I am hopeful that it will help me with my depression. It has been 28 long years.

This man is by far the WORST excuse for a psychiatrist I have had the misfortune of seeing in 19 years! He failed to return phone calls, did not call in Rx as promised, forced me to change effective medications Rx for me for over 12 years, tried to change my longtime diagnosis after only 1 meeting, and disregarded all previous medical records. He had a TOTAL disregard for my personal circumstances, logistics, and finances. He flat out lied to mine and my husband's face about being able to prescribe medication for 3 months at a time. He expected my family to drive 2hrs one way to see him every 2 weeks! He Rx a new medication which caused horrible side effects and took over a week to respond to our notification of that fact. When asked where my labs were after he made me have 6 vials of blood drawn, a mouth swab and 2 drug tests he and his office repeatedly lied stating they weren't in and the labs were a month behind. Etc. Do NOT see this dispicable person.

Horrible office staff and comfortable feeling they have a policy to maintain a copy of your credit card so should you not come to an appointment they can hit your card! Number one never let someone copy your credit card so they can hit your credit anytime they want and for $?? Then they had me waiting 45 minutes late for my appointment and they didn’t give me credit for my time wasted! Totally unprofessional office and I will be sure to advise my Dr and my insurance if the lack of proper patient care
