Dr. McCormack has been very helpful to my wife and I. I had symptoms that would not go away and I saw a lot of other doctors about this but I was finally sent to Dr. McCormack who listened very carefully to what was happening to me and ordered tests that showed I had an intestinal problem they could treat with medication. She was very good about explaining the medicine and has really made things much better for me. I would recommend her.

Traumatic experience. I had several extremely embarrassing symptoms that I had never been able to talk about and were ruining my life. I told her was how difficult it was for me to talk about & that I needed to explain for a few uninterrupted minutes in order to"get it out". But she quickly interrupted, and yelled at me repeatedly for saying that a previous dr's suggestions only worsened the symptoms. Her anger was so extreme I was paralyzed and couldn't even tell her the worst of my symptoms

Terrible bedside manner. When she was repeating back info I had told her, she had some incorrect info so I tried to interject and she replied "I'm SPEAKING!" I asked about long term side effects of a med and she agreed that there were some concerns about it but when I called to inquire further, both she and her assistant referred to my concerns as "my issues about the medicine" spoken with an implied eye roll as if I was crazy for my concerns. 2 stars bc she was very thorough w/testing.
