Dr McGillis spent less than one minute with me. She talked down to me and was very abrupt. Definitely would not recommend her.

Dr. McGillis is very good at communication and has a great bed-side manner. I find her to be warm and open which is rare for any physician these days. They are all in such a hurry and Dr. McGillis takes what ever time is needed to ensure that you understand any, and all, procedures.
