The entire office has poor communication skills. It's very segmented & phone calls about lab appointments are missed. They forget to deliver your results by mail. The nurses give you results by phone and leave messages with incomplete results and Dr. McKay is completely unavailable. They require you to have an appointment with him & then he'll ask you WHY you're there. It's a mess. Plus, not observing patients lab results closely & overmedicating. BE YOUR OWN ADVOCATE. No bedside manner here.

Dr. McKay is part of a large medical practice operating under a large regional hospital. The hospital's focus has been growing market share achieved by buying and merging private medical practices into its network. The result is a high patient to Doctor ratio and mediocre care that is unresponsive. I personally like Dr. McKay but he is never available by phone and always rushed. The office staff are rude and patronizing whose only objective is patient turnover. They do not listen nor care.

Comes in with a laptop. Sits there tapping away while you are trying to tell him what's wrong. Ignores half of your problems. You have a FEW minutes, and he's gone. I ended up in the hospital and almost died from a hemorrhaging lung abscess. AND, I asked him to look at my back near where he had removed a basil cell cancer before. Acted disgusted, and said, "what?, I don't see anything". Later, I had another Dr. remove the pre -cancerous lesion. He also makes bad taste jokes i relationship to you
