My perception of my experience with Dr. McNeal is he actually saw and recognized my presence, followed a question protocol to get at my past and present state of health, ancestral health and concerns. As a first visit I felt satisfied and thought I have met a good caretaker of my health. I would have enjoyed more time to discover who Dr. McNeal is as an individual but understand time is money. In summary, I walked away thinking I was in good hands from being greeted and interviewed at the clinic entrance, through Dr. McNeals' interview-discussion-health plan decisions, phlebotomist experience and exit. I am still quite impressed with the efficiency from start to finish. I would have enjoyed sharing a meal with every staff member I encountered. It was an unexpected encouraging experience.

Dr McNeal is a great physician...listener...and healthcare problem solver. I would now even call him a dear friend for that is how he treats me. He is professional yet there is a caring that transcends his oath and it is that quality that makes him one of the best "healers" possible. His caring heals along with his knowledge makes a powerful combination...a wonderful doctor and person...and now friend.
