He is the best doctor I have ever had in my entire 63 years of life. I should note that my last general physician I had beginning when I turned 16 years old, and until he retired in 2019. I thought he was the best, but I honestly hit the jackpot with Dr. McGee! I am truly grateful as he has saved my life. My family feels the same.

Dr. McGee was the third consult I saw for my potential procedure. This consult is easily distinguishable from other consults I've had by the level of professionalism and the approach to assessing. Dr. McGee asked questions the other surgeons didn't even touch on. I'm thoroughly impressed with the level of service and bedside manner. Outstanding!

Dr. McGee is fantastic, even though he modestly responded that there are only a handful of oncological surgeons at NM. He was highly competent, of course, but also unfailingly kind, respectful, and gentle for 5 years. The payment person who checked me in at the last visit was also especially nice. I didn't catch her name.

Dr. McGee and his team are superb! I was referred to him and I'm so grateful. He worked with my initial doctor and surgeon to understand the full picture of my diagnosis. He shared my options, made recommendations and referred me for additional genetic testing to make sure my family is informed also...What made the most difference for me was that he put himself in my shoes. He gave me his thoughts if he was in my shoes and also respected my choice if my thoughts were different. ..He answered all my questions and gave a very caring exam...I feel truly in good hands and that means the world when you receive a cancer diagnosis. I traveled out of state to receive care from Dr. McGee and it was very worth it.
