Good doctor. Terrible scheduling and communication management with the staff. Waited 45 minutes before being called in the first trip. Over an hour today. The front desk has no clue about managing and pipelining and seem oblivious that patients are waiting.

My appointment was for 3:30 pm. I arrived at 3:20 and completed the new patient forms and returned them to the receptionist at 3:30. I asked what was taking so long at 4:00 pm. They told me the doctor was behind and I would be seen in 15-20 minutes. I was called in at 4:30 pm. Poor start for a new patient experience. Dr. McGahan was courteous but brief. No one in the office offered an apology for the one hour delay. Seemed to be a high volume office. I left feeling a more like a number and not a patient. Not a great first impression.

I appreciated Dr. McGahan giving me options and not deciding on surgery as the only solution to my rotator cuff injury. I agreed to return in about 5 months to see how things have progressed with my injury.

I was upset that my appointment got changed but only because I need to take an early morning appointment and I live far away. To avoid morning traffic and get to the appointment in time I arrived about an hour early. I ended up being seen early and was out of the office well before the my new appointment time.
