Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Magee was great! He really listened to me, got tests run right away, and was very thorough in describing the diagnosis and treatment plan.
it was a hot day but there was great parking in the shade on the street. When signed in at the reception i was seen almost immediately because i filled out all my paperwork online the day before. I was in, got examined and a cortizone shot got out all in less than 45 minutes. Staff there is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend them.
He was very informative and broke down the issue and best avenue for recovery.
I was unimpressed. I felt like he was too busy. That I was just a number. Didn't really fully explain the extent of my injury. The device he gave me to use looked 20 years old. I will not be returning
Very friendly and highly knowledgable doctor! We are very happy with our experience with doctor Magee.
Although he seemed a little rushed and didn't ask alot about my medical history, he seemed very knowledgeable and respectful. Office staff was very friendly and the appointment was prompt and I was in and out in about 30 minutes.
Best doc ever!
Dr. Magee spent time explaining what the MRI showed but he also wanted an x-ray to know the entire picture. He discussed a treatment plan based on test results. The x-ray was performed in the office and took a few minutes. I am very pleased with the staff as well as Dr. Magee.
Most efficient office I have seen. Dr Magee's bedside manner was fantastic.
Dr Magee is great provider cares about his patient and concerns..
great experience, i recommend the service to everyone
Very competent. Listened to the complaint and provided options for treatment. Definitely will be coming back if this crops up again.
Dr. Magee did a total replacement on my right knee in 2005. I badly need to replace the left knee now, but was feeling very apprehensive about the project. He thoroughly explained the changes in the replacement procedure which make it much more attractive, and I am giving careful thought and prayer to the matter. Dr. Magee is very professional but warm and considerate. I think he's an excellent physician and I would recommend him to anyone considering joint surgery.
Dr.Magee is a top ortho surgeon who is very informative and willing to answer all of the patients questions. I highly recommend him to anyone getting a hip replacement.
Dr. Magee is amazing. He listened and was able to identify my issue immediately. He clearly and accurately described what I needed to do to help with the situation and answered any questions I had. Thanks!
Dr.Magee is awesome, very straightforward and to the point and everyone in the office is so helpful to get you in and out and on the way.
Satisfactory and professional
Dr.Magee was very informative regarding the hip replacement procedure. He was very patient and detailed when answering questions from the family. A true professional !!!
His friendliness, honesty and professionalism.
Dr. Magee and his staff are professional, respectful and very kind. Dr. Magee listens to the patient and does the least evasive yet most effective surgeries. Post surgery is just as great! Highly recommend!
Very Professional - Now My Knee 10X better...!
I saw Dr. Magee in April and he was thorough and gave a specific diagnosis of tendonitis in my hand and elbow, based upon exam AND x-rays. He chose to treat with a cortisone shot in my elbow as that was more severe pain at the time than hand. I told him I wanted recourse in case pain came back or got worse in hand. He said no problem and I could call when I had problems for medication and that in fact once you have tendonitis flare ups happen. I called just 2 months later in June and was told at 12:30 on a Friday that they couldn't reach him or any other doctor or nurse in the practice to call in a simple anti inflammatory because the Doctor hadn't made the appropriate notes in my file. In fact before the receptionist checked she said he didn't usually make these notes. She was rude until I said I was going to go write reviews anywhere I could then she agreed to try. However the office manager wasn't willing to make the practice's mistake right and therefore I'm left to suffer with horrible pain in my dominant hand all weekend. They tried to say they hadn't seen me since April and that I'd only been there once which was part of the reason they couldn't help but it was less than 2 months ago and it's not like they didn't know exactly what I was dealing with given the conclusive diagnosis. I've never experienced such disregard for a patient's condition, especially when they're claiming that the reason they can't help is due to their own incompetence. Highly recommend seeing a different medical professional with orthopedic problems.
He simply explained my issue and answered my questions.
Doctor was very professional, diagnosed me fairly quickly and explained my treatment options and the pros and cons. Very helpful on follow-up visit and has helped me get better from a tricky knee problem. Efficient and friendly. Would recommend this practice.
Was seen quickly and everyone was professional and courteous
Patients who choose Dr. Magee should come armed with as many specific questions as possible. It's also a good idea to ask him to write down any diagnoses he makes. This is a very busy practice and it feels like one.
Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and a short wait time. Great experience!
The office was clean .The heat was up to high.The Doctor and Staff acted in a Professional manner
I'm so happy that I choose him
It's was a very nice visit
Dr. Magee does not do spine surgery but he referred to specialist who is doing every day. He can't help me with my issue as I was expected.
When I was finally able to see Dr. Magee, he appeared to have good Doctor to patient skills. His diagnosis was quick but didn't rush our visit.
Great doctor who cares about the patient
Great doctor! Very knowledgable.
Very professional and to the point in terms of diagnosis and corresponding advice.
I appreciated his good natured personality and attention to detail. Additionally he asked all the right questions and gave me several options in terms of treatment. A+
He was very knowledgable and very friendly! I would come back for sure!
The office is larger and busier than I had expected and the waiting room is close to the action. Some might see this as bad, but I liked that it gives the client a feel for what's being done. Dr Magee provided treatment after fully assessing the physical and imaging data. This is the morning after the visit and I am almost completely pain free.
Great doctor, very encouraging. The reception staff was very nice and accommodating, I forgot my insurance card but they still let me see the doctor and allowed me time to fax it over the next day. The reception area was a bit busy but overall good experience, somewhat convenient to Metro.
Dr. Magee is very professional and caring with his patients. He takes the time to listen and takes into consideration the needs of the patient before deciding on a course of action.
Dr Magee was very efficient, kind and told me what I needed to know.
Very thorough, taking time to answer my questions, and as gentle as a lamb, lived up to my expectation.
Very professional and thorough. Completely explained everything.
Dr. Magee was good. The office could be nicer, and they had me waiting in a private room for 30 minutes before they the X-ray guy came and got me. Dr. Magee is a good Doc, but I think the staff and office could use some improvement.
The whole visit was great! The secretaries were helpful. The physician's assistant took my history and paid attention to what I said. I was not rushed. The physician's assistant encouraged me that the treatment would have me feeling better in a day or two. The x-ray technicians did an efficient job. Dr. McGee gave me feedback which anticipated the questions that I had. He told me the diagnosis and administered the appropriate treatment himself. The whole experience was professional. They managed our time together well.
