Ratings for Dr. James M. McDaid
I can always count on Dr Mcdaid to help me out in a pinch. Stood by me during a difficult time during my life and was always there to help me with my pain management. Would take me last minute for an emergency appointment. Coordinated care with my primary physician. Easy to talk to. I am greatful.
Dr. McDaid is one of the kindest doctors I have ever dealt with. He is a very caring compassionate care giver and is always available for a call..7/24. One on occasion I had mentioned that my daughter had injured her back during a track practice. My child is also a soccer player and had a upcoming game that she did not want to miss her pain was not to great but it was causing enough discomfort to miss practice. During the phone call..on his own time, Dr. McDaid walked me though many excerises and home therapies I can show my child which did relieve much of her discomfort. Dr. McDaid went as far as offering to come to her game (which he did) just to see how she was feeling and showed such great care for her. I have never met such a caring Doctor who would go so far as offer so much help for my young athlete. He is very knowledgable in evey aspect of pain and how it can be corrected. I will never go to any other chiropractor and will always suggest to friends to see Dr. McDaid
I have been having upper back and neck pains for years. Upon seeing Dr. McDaid, he was able to pin point exactly where my pain was coming from only by seeing my neck move. I was impressed with his professionalism, in addition to his kind demeanor. AdditionaI problems that I have been having such as headaches and involuntary eye twitching have subsided since my visit. I will definitely be back to see him again!
My experience with Dr. McDaid has been extraordinary. My internist recommended him as an alternate to going to a pain medicine physician. His intuitive hands are uncanny in how they find the exact place to manipulate; and to heal. A doctor's staff typically reflect the person in charge. And that's why Dr. McDaid 's staff is warm, welcoming, helpful and caring, just as he is.I am so thankful that he is at the Summit Medical Group and it is so convenient to get to his office. That, too, is a plus. In case I haven't made this clear, I appreciate how Dr. McDaid cares for me. His patients are very fortunate.
acted inappropriate with me on my 1st visit. He wanted to demonstrate how the discs in my back were rubbing causing friction. Ok, so I thought he would use the anatomy figurine siting on the counter, no he didn't, instead he slid himself on the stool as close as possible to my chair, using both his legs,he placed them on the outsides of both my legs and thrust himself 3 times forcefully in a back a forth motion. I never went back. But I did report this incident to the Spine Dr. The only reason I told him was because he recommended Dr. McDaid, I refused & he wanted to know why. I told him. Dr. McDaid was inappropriat, he pressed for details since he refers patients to him. Reluctantly I told him & asked that he not use my name. And the reason for that is because I love Summit Medical all the other Dr.'s I have seen there & the nurses have all been wonderful. I didn't want it leaking out and henceforth being treated differently. it felt like he was humping my legs, unprofessional :(
My experience was very positive. Prior to entering the room, he had taken the time to read my Xrays and MRI along with the report from the referring Doctor. He listened attentively as I explained my year long oddessy. He asked a few questions and then examined me. He knew immediately what was wrong and explained it in a way that was easy to understand and re expalin to my husband later. After the second visit I was 70% better. I was discharged on the 5th visit and have been pain free ever since. He was very professional and I will always be greatful for the chance to have met him. Highly recommend him.
My first visit brought instant relief. The problem was McDaid's insistence that I had to have the procedure again and again. I must say that at first I was charmed by his flirting, but then it started to concern me, especially when the therapy involved placing my head in his crotch and twisting it. Maybe that is an actual therapeutic technique, but it was giving me headaches in addition to seeming inappropriate. I ended my treatment and will not ever go to a chiropractor again.
My wife was suffering from back pain the whole weekend and had some recurring pain which countless hours of therapy and doctor visits could not be resolved. We went to him for the first time today he already had read the chart on my wife since she is a patient at SMG and was ready with all the information when he walked in to see us. He explained to us exactly what he was doing and what was causing the problem. He was able to help with my wife's back pain immediately and explained to us that she would need a couple more sessions to resolve her other recurring problems. Highly recommend the doctor.
