Dr.McKee put a stint in me after my gallbladder was removed. Did a very good job of explaining to me the reasons why it was put in. Go back in a week to get it removed. Have a scheduled colonoscopy for next month with Dr.McKee. He was very comfortable to talk with and the nurse that scheduled all my appointments was very helpful and explained everything to me until I understood everything.
