Dr. McGannon was not very friendly on my first visit with him. He became angry with a question I felt I had the right to ask. His bedside manner left a lot to be desired! I stayed only because I felt his credentials as a Surgeon were good.

The staff in Dr. McGannon's office is wonderful and attentive. However, waiting ten days for a call (so far and counting) to schedule cataract surgery Is unreasonable, especially without any idea how far out surgeries are being scheduled. Weeks? Months? It's a discount of a patient's time and shows a disregard for our time and ability to plan. I have had other surgeries at the Cleveland Clinic and scheduling was done In a much more timely fashion.

Dr. McGannon is thorough, pleasant, attentive, professional and caring. My sister referred me to him as she had had him for years; and she as I am very particular with my health care physician choices.

He deals with it every day but he understands that patients know nothing about the surgery and I am thankful for this trait in a physician.
