I absolutely love Dr. McNair!! I recently switched to him from Dr. X. I really like him and his staff. They are very punctual and Dr. McNair personally called me to discuss my lab results and always responds by next day to portal messages. Dr. X's office never called you back or responded so this is a huge change for me!!

the doctor and his nurse were great, I experienced some unprofessionalism while dealing with the receptionist, who checked me in on the first day. I came back the next day, the receptionist was really professional. but the lab section was very unprofessional. especially my phlebotomist she was one of the most unprofessional people that I have ever have encountered in my life. very rude. I sat and waited for about 10-15 minutes to get my blood work done. after waiting on the ladies to finish gossiping about one of their coworkers. I was pretty disappointed with this experience, hopefully next time I visit things will have changed.

when the doctor came in he did not engage me in any polite way. he examined me and did not explain his findings from the exam. when I expressed surprise and inquired about why a particular medicine was being prescribed he barked an abrupt answer to me which left my wife and I stunned. so much so that I was unable to engage him in meaningful dialogue after that exchange. I was not allowed to participate in the process and the visit was very quick. it left me feeling as if we were not welcome in the office.

Dr. McNair shows so much caring for me as a patient. He has referred me to a specialist that will be doing surgery on my spine after years of seeing other doctors for my problem without any solution to fix me. Dr. McNair actually listens to all my issues and cares enough to come up with answers. He is the best primary care I have ever had, and I'm 57 years old, so that should tell how good he is. I can not say enough about Dr. because the proper words haven't been made yet to describe that type of a caring Dr. ...... Now, as for the manager there... she started off acting like she cared about helping me get things straightened out about some billing issues, then before anything got going on that she seems to have dropped the ball. Said she would look into things and get back to me in a few days maybe a week. That was in September or October 2017. I have called many times leaving a message to call me back. Nope, no call. I have gone there many times. Each and every time I'm told she's in a meeting and still no call.
