Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent, I have appointments to see what the cause of my problems are, hopefully. I am very encouraged.
She listen and took notes most Drs don't take notes.
She was great! Took the time to listen and has done more to help me get resolution to my issue than the two other ENT's I have seen.
Very knowledgeable. Spent time with me to discuss options. Not a hurried appointment even though she worked me in within two days!
Dr. MacKechnie is an excellent provider, who listens and takes ample time for assessment with the patient. Also, the office staff is extremely helpful and kind. It took me a long time to find an ENT office that I actually found helpful, professional, and that I truly trusted, and I am happy to be with the Scottsdale/Commercio location of Valley ENT with Drs. MacKechnie and Heiland, and PA-C Kramer. Cannot recommend them enough!
Everyone was very nice and professional. The Dr. Was very thorough and kind.
She's charming and knowledgeable with an excellent staff.
Fast, new patient appointment & everything is done under 1 roof. Beautiful, clean facilities & great staff! Dr. MacKechnie was extremely thorough & I feel I'm in great hands! Highly recommended! I got so much more out of my 1st appointment than expected. Left with a smile, even after being scoped, which was nearly painless.
She is very knowledgeable in her field and puts one at ease. Easy to talk.
Since I was having an ear problem, I saw the Audiologist and had a hearing test done first which could help diagnose the problem. I then saw Dr MacKechnie and was given a thorough exam. I was very impressed with her quick diagnosis. I have a follow up appointment and will continue to see her as needed..
It was great. She was thorough and friendly
Very pleasant. Thorough assessment with next steps in place.
She was very patient and calm and didn't make you feel rushed. She went over many scenarios and was very helpful.
Wonderful, she was very concerned and set up CT scans for next day with surgery within two weeks.
Dr. MacKechnie was very knowledgeable and took her time to fully understand my problem. She gave good sound advice taking a phased appproavh to address the issue.
Dr. Cheryl MacKechnie is excellent to work with. She performed my surgery this month and was very responsive and available to me afterwards when I had questions / concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr. MacKechnie!
