Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. McGinty was very friendly and informative. She took the time to review my history and ask questions to fully understand my medical needs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Dr. McGinty is a wonderful provider. She is easy to talk to and very calming. I would highly recommend her for anyone.
Not bad; no sense of warm appreciation for visit or anything,. Hairdo a bit disconcerting.
I went in for an annual physical which is required by my work and insurance. The doctor seemed unaware of what was done in an annual physical, a very basic appointment. Months later, I'm now dealing with issues with the insurance claims from that appointment - an appointment I never have issues with every year. Wish I had found another doctor.
Dr. McGinty and the staff at Jivana are fantastic! Their bedside manner is terrific and they really take the time to explain everything they're doing or recommending. They put up with all my questions (and I have lots!) and are very patient. Cannot recommend enough!
I went to this office one time for a checkup and free allergy testing. Following my appointment, about 2 weeks later I was called by the office to see if I wanted to come discuss allergy treatment, I said no, and assumed it would stop there. Instead - I was billed about a month later for 3 appointments (my original appointment, and 2 allergy treatment appointments that I never went to). The office removed my charges, but still attempted to charge my insurance by saying that I made the appointments but didn't show up. Hands down the worst experience I've had in a doctors office as well as with the follow up - still working with my insurance to make sure no one else gets screwed by this place :)
Dr. McGinty and her staff were friendly and professional. Made an appointment on Friday evening for Saturday morning- great experience!
To this day never got my results, guess she was too busy
This was my first visit and I enjoyed it very much. She was very welcoming and made the appt very comfortable.
This is the first doctor's office I've ever been to in which every professional working there was friendly, helpful, and seemed genuinely happy doing their work. Dr. McGinty is compassionate, knowledgeable, and doesn't make you wait! Can't recommend this place enough!
Dr. McGinty was friendly, thorough, empathetic and put together a plan of care that was manageable for me and addressed my main medical concern (severe chronic pain) by focusing on treating the main problem instead of just the symptoms. She is the only doctor I've seen, (aside from my rheumatologist) who was educated about my medical condition, which made me confident in her recommendations and the plan of care she presented. She had a friendly bedside manner, was easy to talk to, and took time to listen to me instead of rushing through the appointment like previous doctors I've seen. I left the appointment feeling confident in my doctor and hopeful for the first time in years. It was refreshing to be seen as a person and not just another patient or a paycheck. I would absolutely recommend Dr. McGinty to anyone in need of a compassionate, knowledgeable doctor.
I went to Dr. McGinty for the first time for a quick medical issue. The office staff was friendly and I was seen pretty quickly considering I was late for my appointment. The person who took me back to take my vitals made a weird joke about my weight that made me uncomfortable, but otherwise was fine. I only saw Dr. McGinty for a few minutes who didn't really ask many questions about my symptoms. She left to write a prescription and it seemed like she was gone for a pretty long time considering it didn't seem very busy. She brought back the prescription that she said would hopefully work and didn't give any instructions for taking the medication other than that I probably didn't need to take it for the full amount of days but that I should anyway (which is concerning to hear about an antibiotic). She didn't instruct whether I should have any follow up appointment. The location is convenient so I might return again if I can't find anywhere else but it's not likely.
Dr. McGuinty and her staff were great. I have a little anxiety when I go to the Doctors, and they made sure that I was okay at all times. I highly recommend this office!
She was pleasant! Short, to the point and relatively thorough! Def will be coming back to her
First visit. She is very kind and listening. I hope that all goes well and she'll be my regular dr.
Dr. McGinty was very kind and listened to my concerns. The wait to see her was very long and I waited almost an hour during the appointment.
