I was fortunate to have a dental hygienist who spotted what turned out to be leukoplakia during a check-up. But, I wasn't comfortable with the suggested treatment to remove the area affected. So, I sought a second opinion from an oral surgeon. The oral surgeon suggested that see Dr. McNamara. I was very comfortable with the proposed surgical solution and am thankful to have Dr. McNamara there for the ongoing follow-up. The surgery was performed at BSW-Plano and I was very impressed with the level of care I received during this day surgery.

He as leared well from his Yoda (Dr. Steckler). 2nd time he has worked on me and so far I am extremely pleased. I think he has just as promising a career ahead as Dr Steckler has already accomplished - The hospital staff said I had the best one-two combo in the USA taking care of me. I believe it. Thanks

DR. MCNAMARA performed surgery on my mouth and jaw to remove stage IV squamous cell carcinoma. He did an excellent job explaining everything to me ahead of time and followup has been great. He answers my questions and is very professional and easy to speak with. I am so grateful for his skills and expertise. He saved my life removing the cancer.

Dr. William McNamara is a great surgeon, took great care of my husband, got him scheduled for lipoma removal surgery very quick and worked with our schedule, explained everything to us in great detail, prepared us for worst case scenario, we were lucky husband did not need the big surgery, incision looks great and barely noticeable (behind his earlobe) overall, we think Dr. McNamara is great doctor and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Surgery scheduled for 9 AM. Two hours later, no word, no nothing. The entire process has been one excuse after another. You should find someone else. He my be touted as the best in the country, but my experience says there has to be someone that has their act together.
