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.

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

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.

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 itmuch 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.

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 wasmore 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.

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.

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 Mageeprovided treatment after fully assessing the physical and imaging data. This is the morning after the visit and I am almost completely pain free.
