Dr. R. Trent McKay's Ratings
During 3 visits to McKay's office I have waited over an hour(past my appointment time) to be seen each time. I had a serious injury to my knee several months ago and had an MRI. The image did not show an obvious injury, but showed fraying behind the knee cap. On 1st visit McKay stated he believed I had a torn meniscus but recommended PT. 2nd visit was a steroid injection with more PT gearing up for possible surgery. 3rd visit, McKay acted as though I had a phantom injury and stated that my insurance would not cover a "exploratory surgery". McKay told me that my injury is in my head and that my knee collapsing on me 3 separate times now causing me to fall is also in my head. I am a healthy, very active person and have NEVER had ANY issues with my knee prior to this injury. I left McKay's office with NO idea what just happened or what has happened to my knee. I am seeing a new Orthopedic Specialist and will keep you posted. I would NOT recommend Dr. Trent McKay to anyone. After what just happened in his office, there is NO WAY I would trust him to cut into my body or preform any type of surgery for me. Please use extreme caution if you choose to be seen by him.
McKay removed ossicles and shaved some bone down in my knee that was contributing to quite a bit of my knee pain. I didn't realize how much until after surgery , recovery, and rehab. My knee feels excellent and I have returned to full activity (soccer). I would recommend him for surgery. Nice, effective, knowledgable and gets right to the point.
I cannot say enough good things about this surgeon. My general practitioner recommended him as the best doc for shoulders around. I had issues with a biceps tendon coming out of the groove by my shoulder, a torn rotator cuff, and arthritis in my AC joint. He fixed all by cutting my biceps tendon, shaving off the end of my clavicle, and fixing my torn rotator cuff muscles. I am no longer having debilitating pain and ecstatic about my recovery. Back to full mobility and strength when I had been having pain for so long I didn't remember what it was like to be without it. Can't thank him enough for giving new life to this aging body.
After 2 visits with Dr McKay, I was very disappointed in the results. There was no solution given to heal my shoulder/back pain and he asked me what would I like to see done. I was dumbfounded thinking your the doctor, I want to know what are my options to have my mobility in my shoulder restored. After payint $1000 for 2 visits and taking valuable time off of work, I decided to travel to Renton to find a provided that would take the time to explain the pain I am experiencing and provide a remedy. So disappointed that I wasted time with Dr Mckay who is overbooked and unable to provide proper one on one care.
I had been having bothering shoulder pain for years. I finally got a recommendation to go see Dr. Mckay from a friend who had a great result with surgery from him. He took time with me and explained every aspect of the surgery with drawings beforehand and made me feel comfotable. He fixed a tear in my rotator cuff using only a scope and took out my AC joint completely relieving my AC joint arthritis. My shoulder is now pain-free and fully functional!
Dr.McKay had some big shoes to fill when Dr Partlow retired as I was a patient of his for over 32 years. Since Dr.McKay taking over my care it has been one medical challenge after another and Dr.McKay has gone above and beyond anything I could have imagined a Dr. Doing to the point of saving my life. ... just by simply listening to me as a person and not just another number walking in the door. He has always addressed every situation with the utmost compassion and professionalism anyone could ever want and or hope for in a Dr. .I would also have to give his nurse Kristen a huge piece of recognition because she is such a huge part of his great success in the office with all of his patient. I truly believe in front of every great Dr is one awesome nurse. .. Thank you Kristen And thank you Dr.McKay for taking such great care of me
This is a physician who not only listens, but actually hears what his patients are telling him and then reads between the lines before giving a diagnosis or treatment plan. Great follow up too - it is obvious Dr. McKay cares a lot about his patients.
excellent repair on my sholder. Dr. McKay was very informative of what to exspect before operating.He went over sholder muscels and joint to be sure repair was complete. He was very informative with wife immediately after operating explained pictures of before and after and what to exspect and not to do while healing and rehabilation. I have recomened him to family and friends because of his excellent care.
I had severe bursitis in both my shoulders. A couple of years ago, I had another orthopedic surgeon in town fix it in one shoulder using an open technique, and was in pain and rehabing it for months afterward. This time whn my other shoulder went bad, I went to Dr. McKay, who fixed it using tiny holes in my shoulder and a scope. I felt better within days, and was back to working full time and feeling 100% within 2 weeks. Huge difference - wish I would have gone to him for the first time too!!
