Athens most compassionate, caring, concerned,loving doctor I have ever met!

July 11, 2016

this was my very first visit with Dr. McGough. I was referred because a recent ankle sprain/ x-Ray revealed a tumor in my ankle, further imaging identified it as possible PVNS which is rare but Right up Dr. McGough's alley. I believe he might actually be the most experienced doctor in the country dealing with this. was very glad that my PCP could arrange for me to be seen within a few days, and was very reassured by his knowledgable manner etc. surgery scheduled next week and I have complete confidence that I am getting the best care possible, very grateful!
