I am in the area only in the summers and see Dr. Mackin once a year for a surgery followup. The time, information, and recommendations I received were excellent. I even commented so to my wife who was waiting for me in the waiting room when I was done. Although he sees me only once a year he is current with my situation and follows up with me. I could not be more pleased with my visit. He is also excellent in following up with my doctors back home regarding my general care.

Dr Mackin is an exceptional cardiologist. Even more important to me is the fact that he is so very kind, caring, and respectful. Today many Drs simply have very little interaction with their patient- they have to get everything into their computers and get to the next appointment. Dr Mackin speaks to me face to face, and knows about all of my medical issues, not just my cardiac status. I truly appreciate his expertise and manner. I wish more Drs were like Dr Mackin.
