    Dr. McPherson is amazing! He listened to my need, and together we adjusted some of my medications and talked about possible side effects.

    [...] (at the front desk) is always so kind and helpful. She and Dr. McPherson make a great team.

    Dr. McPherson listens to my concerns and cares about how I'm doing. I would prefer that he gave me coping mechanisms and advice in addition to the medications he prescribes. He's quick to address medication, rather than helping me know other ways to help my condition.

    Dr. McPherson takes the time to listen to concerns then give advice on what is the healthiest solution for me. Very personable and still very thorough of my concerns.

    Dr. McPherson is an outstanding provider. I chose my health plan specifically because he was a provider.

    Experienced on Jun 13, 2018

    Dr. McPherson understands my needs, listens to my concerns, and is knowledgeable about my history and possible changes needed to improve my health.

    When your talking he's always on his computer writing refills and turns his head to get in the conversation so you feel like your not really being listened to.
