Staff was friendly and respectful. Dr. McGough took his time, listened, and treated me like I actually was there for a reason and was truly in pain. He had a resident doctor come in at first to see me and he followed up and STILL took his time. LOVED HIM!
Insurance: Blue Cross / Blue Shield
Paid (or co-pay): $10

Dr McGough was very knowledge. He indicated lipomas were a specialty. He was on time, although with two residents he was training, and quickly examined my MRI and laid out the options well. I asked a lot of questions about whether I could defer the procedure , whether the surgery was general or local, what happens if it gets worse over time. It turned out to be completely my decision to wait or do surgery. I decided to wait for now and I didn't feel any pressure from him to go forward. We also discussed the pros and cons of waiting vs recovery time as you get older. I would definitely recommend him. Great bedside manner and seemed very knowledgeable. Office staff was friendly and helpful
