Specialties

Dr. Michael J Mckenna has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

dr Delaney has been my doctor four 4 years and was very good to me an excellent doctor he goes to work at your office dr McKenna and I call to make an appt to see him and I'm told that is not gonna happen . I gave my phone number and get called back a week later by a girl who answers the phone where is the courtesy I at least expected dale to call and let me know whats going on. U go to a doctor four 4 years then he goes to work 5 minutes away and I'm told under no circumstances will I be allowed to see him. no loyalty after 4 years

3 appointments with wait time of over 1.5 hours each

Sent me to another place where I had approximately 12 injections in my neck causing a lot of pain. Couldn't move my neck for 2 days. At the follow up with Dr McKenna he wanted to send me to another place to receive different neck injection. When I told him no that's not even where the pain is coming from he fired me as his patient.

Miracles can happen

I fondly refer Dr. McKenna as "St. Michael of McKenna"! He makes miracles happen. Yes the wait can be long - sometimes terribly long! That's because the patient(s) ahead of you need more of his time and energy. When it's your turn, he's there to help with whatever causes you pain. I've been his patient since 2/2000. He's kept me walking, standing upright and relatively pain free.
