Dr. McKinley is a great doctor! He did not rush like other doctors I have been to. I was impressed by how he genuinely cared and how he took the time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. Heis very efficent and makes sure to check everything. I definetly recommend him! My only minor complaint was that the waiting time was a bit longer than I liked (1 hour).

Dr. McKinley listened very patiently to all my concerns about the problem. He never seemed to be in any rush and was very thorough with his explanation of the infection and how the prescribed medicines would help. He was very amiableand polite. Although the waiting time is long, i think that's just because the doctor gives more time to his patients. Since his medication was very effective i don't mind the waiting time.
