Frederick, MD |
Dr McKenna saved my daughter's life when she was bleeding out from a lacerated liver and Frederick Memorial hospital had released her without even taking X-rays. He was professional, handled the procedure, our daughter who was in extreme pain and two very anxious parents all very adeptly. I'd voted him best doc in Frederick by a landslide and I've seen many over several decades. Highly recommended.

I got gallbladder surgery at holly cross Germantown this past week and he performed it. I was in and out and did not even know what happened. Very friendly and professional, even apologized when he was late. I'm still in pain but it went well. thank you.

I am a 66 year old and suffered from morbid obesity. He performed a three surgeries simultaneously: 1- stomach sleeve 2-remove gallbladder 3- high hernia All three surgeries completed with flying colors in 4 hours You and your loved ones will be in expert hands with care and attention If you have any questions, please contact me for testimonial
Awesome, awesome awesome. Eight years ago he did an emergency partial colectomy on me. Several years later saved my wife by coming in at 4 PM on a Friday after she spent nearly a week at FMH under the care of a nearly incompetent GI doc and got her into surgery that evening although everything in the Frederick Memorial surgical suite was already closed for the day. He finished at nearly 9 PM, yet still yook the time to find me and explain everything. He has a great personality too.

Dr. McKenna performed life saving surgery on my mom's abdomen one year ago. Next week we are celebrating her life and her wonderful health. I can only hope if I ever end up in the ER that Dr. McKenna will be present. He is a genuine life saver performing miracles here in Maryland.
