Dr Mclaren is the most thoughtful and thorough doctor. He talks to you like he has all day for you but the appointment is also super efficient so the kids don't feel like theyve spent all day at the drs. He is the best.

Both of my boys go to Dr. McLaren and being a nurse I'm hard to impress. He has taken very good care of them. He is thorough and takes the time to answer questions. The boys are not afraid of him and enjoy the visits from the time we enter until we leave.

Would not recommend very condescending. Maybe he just does not care or maybe he is just that sharp.
