Provider is very courteous. Would have liked to see tests run to rule things out. Also, just following my visit, when I called and left several messages, I never heard back from a nurse. Never got a call back. They need to have advice nurses answering phones for patients with important questions or concerns. When I call my son's pediatrician clinic, if I have questions or concerns, I can speak with an advice nurse so why can't adult medical care offer this as well? It sure would be helpful.Too bad testing equipment isn't available in Family Doctor's offices so we can get proper analysis done. Referrals aren't always good because trying to see a specialist can take several months, and when a patient isn't feeling well enough to do their day to day activities, they need immediate care.

It was a new patient visit. You need to sort out all the questionnaires. I had an hour plus on EPIC pre visit then paper forms at the doctor which were 80% the same but not totally. Pick one or the other.

Dr. McKay is great at listening to me about issues that are physical in nature and answering all of the questions I came to the office with. I'm so fortunate to have her for our family doctor.

My visits with Dr McKay are always thorough and informative. We review all existing conditions, status of previous issues, and she takes the time to address current questions by checking my symptoms if needed, explaining what causes might be and plan to address if needed.

There was a new nurse, who was very nice and pleasant but seemed stressed about them being shorthanded which I totally understood. But, she wasn't sure if I needed to change into a gown now or if Dr would want to talk with me first. So she said she would go and find out and let me know, but she never returned. Dr McKay cae in and discussed everything and checked my vitals, lungs, heart, etc. Was thinking she would leave while I change and finish exam but as she went out the door she said her goodbyes etc. I don't know if she assumed I didn't want a full exam or what. I am not even sure if the nurse ever asked her about when I should change. Not a huge deal, but that was a little weird and I dod not get a full exam. I could have said something at the end, but I was told how short handed they were, so I didn't want to bother them with it.

My lab results were returned within 12 hrs. of my appointment. There were several results out of the normal range. I contacted Dr. McKay on MyHealth to ask what adjustments should be made. 17 days later I have not heard back from Dr. McKay!

I am always impressed that even though I may not recognize the Front Desk Staff, they are always professional and hurry through the check in process.And I find it very comforting to always have the same Med Assistant (Erinn) who consistently treats me with professionalism and respect.My sessions with Dr McKay are of the highest caliber of any doctor that I see in my circle of healthcare. I value our intelligent discussions and feel that I am heard. I truly feel that she and I are on the same team and are working towards the same goal.

I travel miles one way twice a year to consult with Dr. McKay because I am so satisfied with the care I get there. In addition I want to commend the receptionists who are so helpful and patient if I call with any questions. This is why I travel so far when there are plenty of doctors In [location removed].
