Patient Comments (3)
I saw Dr. McWey and he was extremely professional and made me feel at ease about the procedure. Easy to ask questions to and he answered them patiently. I'd heard good things about him from previous patient's in the past and he certainly lived up to those expectations. Would recommend and see again.

He came across very well for the consultation, but was not great for the procedure and for the follow-up. Also, I have had the procedure done with another doctor and McWey's bills were significantly higher. I have good insurance but my out-of-pocket was a lot higher based on his billings. It was nearly impossible to schedule my follow-up so I never had it. His work was less than the previous doctor I had.

I have had several studies done in this department for both myself and my child. Dr. McWey took the time to sit down and discuss everything as well as answer all of my questions. I was even fit in for a same day appointment. I realize he is the head of the Radiology Department and I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor, he has great bedside manner. He took the extra time to sit and give me individual care. I felt that he truly understood and resolved all of my concerns, such a wonderful doc!
