He was caring, concerned, educated on all types of my condition, and spent a lot of time reviewing a test, options, etc. After seeing 2 other neurosurgeons for consult, he was the BEST.

My Doctor is always warm and welcoming. Honestly this is a very scary moment every year to hear whether I'm going to see a change in my brain and when he walks in the door he's always straight to the point and doesn't waste any time. I also respect my doctor and his staff, they have always been so welcoming and have made me feel good even in moments of great stress.

Dr.McGregor was outstanding. He took the time to explain everything and listened to my concerns and my husbands. I could not have asked for a better physician. I was referred to him and immediately felt comfortable with my treatment plan.
