in Holladay, Ut |
Dr McKinlay is a great surgeon! He is warm, compassionate, and caring. I do think there is anything he wouldn't do for his patients. He is the opposite of the stereotypical surgeon! While his focus is bariatric surgery he is also a wonderful general surgeon and has saved my life at least twice in the past 3 years.
in Farr West, UT |
He makes you feel so comfortable and at ease in your decisions. His warm and friendly demeanor are very comforting before and after the surgery. The one problem that I and many others have found in his office is lack of help with the insurance process the office has many patients and in great need of some more help in the insurance processing. Every patient I have talked to States that the one Insurance person is so busy and overwhelmed she can't fulfill her obligations and Promises.

Dr. Rodrick McKinlay joined Rocky Mountain Associated Physicians in 2004 as a board certified general surgeon with expertise in minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery. In addition to the surgical treatment of obesity, his practice involves a wide range of minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery, including hernia repair, gallbladder removal, anti-reflux surgery, and the surgical treatment of spleen and adrenal disorders.

Dr. McKinlay graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University in 1993 and then received his medical degree from the University of Utah in 1997, where he graduated with honors in medicine and surgery. After completing General Surgery residency at the University of Arizona, he began a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) fellowship at the University of Kentucky, focusing on research in MIS. He concluded the clinical portion of the fellowship at the University of Maryland.

In addition to striving for top-quality surgical care using the latest technology, Dr. McKinlay emphasizes treating the whole patient with respect and attention to detail.
