Quite confident of the treatment Dr. McKenna will provide.
Patient | December 18, 2018
Despite the long wait, I appreciated Dr. McKenna's "unhurriedness" - he always seems thorough, well-informed, and takes the time to explore options and make sure I understand his judgment and recommendations, and to answer questions. This is more important to me than being seen immediately.
Patient | October 30, 2018
Dr McKenna and his staff are wonderful!
Patient | October 24, 2018
Waited a long time in exam room before seeing provider.
Patient | October 23, 2018
Dr. McKenna put me at ease concerning the upcoming work I need to have done. Very friendly and gave me confidence that my issues can be taken care of.
Patient | October 23, 2018
my experience was excellent
Patient | October 18, 2018
the Dr was awesome. He explained all the alternatives and procedures and timeline. He was kind enough and interested enough in my welfare ( I'm a veteran) to contact someone at the VA on my behalf. Even though I live an hour and a half from Vandy I was very impressed by everyone and will not hesitate to contact them for any health issues.
Patient | October 16, 2018
I trust Dr. Mckenna with any health issues. He is very kind and knows his stuff.
Patient | August 6, 2018

Patient | June 19, 2018
Dr. McKenna is the Ritz Carlton of his profession.
Patient | June 19, 2018
Best dr. I've been to!
Patient | June 12, 2018
Dr. McKenna went above & beyond to help me with my son & ease my concerns.
Patient | April 19, 2018

Dr. Sam is a very good doctor!
Patient | February 24, 2018
provider appeared to adjust schedule to accommodate tooth extraction
Patient | February 20, 2018
I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of attention he gave to my situation and how he included me in some of the decision-making.
Patient | February 20, 2018
All good
