Dr. McClain does not spend enough time with me and constantly leaves the exam room for one reason or another, not returning for up 15 to 20 minutes at a time - my most recent appointment, I sat in the exam room for well over an hour and I had to hunt him down to talk to me - his first words were, "Have you submitted a stool sample?“ and when I replied no, he said he was going to get me a fecal occult kit but didn’t return - a nurse came in 5 minutes later to take my shoes and socks off for a foot exam and I sat there for 30 minutes until I hunted him down and chewed him out. He does not go over the issues you come in for and has a poor bedside manner and makes love to his computer instead of talking and listening to the patient. I cannot recommend him at all.

I am 67 years old and Dr. McClain has been my primary doctor for about 20 years. Needless to say, I think very highly of him. He accurately diagnosis my health problems and readily refers me to the appropriate specialist when necessary. Usually, if Dr. McClain is not available, I will just suffer through my ailment, if it's not too serious, until I can schedule an appointment with him instead of going to another doctor.

Dr. McClain is a well meaning doctor that has a hard time treating pain patients. He doesn't have the toughness or savvy to keep patients from getting addicted to narcotics. I TRUSTED him to treat my pain illnesses with narcotics in such a way that I would not become addicted. I ended up one day being told by Dr. McClain that he could not refill my prescription and that my choices were to go to accupunture or rehab. While in rehab, I found out from my chemical dependency psychiatrist that 2 more of Dr. McClain's patients were being admitted into rehab that week. He means well, but this is a dangerous doctor to go to if you don't want to unwittingly end up addicted to painkillers/narcotics.
