Very practical and grounded physician. Created a comfort level I've not had with other surgeons. Felt at ease asking "if something is going to go wrong, what will it be" type of question, and received a very reasonable answer, as well as a plan should something of that nature occur. Surgical outcome was very good. Have recommended Dr. McLennan to both friends and family.
Dr. Dorcas McLennan was my Ob/Gyn while pregnant in 2012. My blood pressure was abnormally high compared to what it usually is. I have really low blood pressure normally. I kept relaying to her that it was concerning me and she insisted it was in the normal range and everything was fine. I told her my sister died from preeclampsia and that I was afraid I could have it. She ordered a quick blood test (not the best way to test for it) and cleared me. I went in a week later and she was out of town so I saw a midwife at the clinic. Again my blood pressure was high so I told the midwife my concerns and she ordered a 24 hour urine test. Nobody called me with the results but I knew something was wrong. I finally called the hospital and asked for the doctor on call (Zachary Pollack) who told me he would check the results of my urine test then call me back. He called me back quickly to tell me I had preeclampsia and needed to come in immediately for an emergency c-section. This entire ordeal was traumatizing. Dr. McLennan never came to see me after I had my c-section and I had to ask that she come by my room. I felt this was very unprofessional and it seemed she was avoiding me since she had missed such a big thing that I told her I was worried about repeatedly. I'm still upset over what happened and it's been over a year. I think people should know that she did this.
From the one visit I've had with this doctor I'm coming away with the impression that she has poor bedside manner. She asked some pointed questions about my insurance status (medicaid) and intention to work that made me feel uncomfortable and I'd use the word "cold" to further describe her manner. I'm sure she's a great doctor but she left me feeling rather judged where I have never had the other physicians and staff make me feel that way.
