I was sent to Dr. McKenzie for a root canal. After his exam, it turns out I didn't need one at all! I was very thankful he did his own x-rays because it saved me hundreds of dollars. In addition I learned I must of had a sinus infection that cleared!

The doctor spent a lot of time with me going over my options, which I am glad he did. He was able to help me understand what the right option was for me.

he was the one who told me all my options and didn't push me into a decision. came in for a root canal, found out I can get an extraction instead and he was very nice explaining all my options, ups and downs of all options.

I think that the Doctor is very good and did a great job, however, what I felt was missing was communication. Not only was there was very little discussion between the dr and the tech other than tools and direction, but very little if any with me as a patient. I felt like just another tooth that the doctor was working on. It would be nice if he had talked through the process steps as he was doing them or letting me know what to expect next. It turns out i required a root canal through my crown and when in there they discovered a cavity. I only knew this after they were all done. He also hit a tooth nerve in the process and there was only a brief statement about the next shot and how quickly it would work to numb things again. - I know he sees so many people but a little more care and bedside manner would be very nice to see and improve how people view him. He is a very good specialist but a bit more effort to make the patient feel like more than a tooth would make him great. Note the tech and receptionist were great!

If I was to rate the professionalism and care on a scale of 1-10 that this Doctor provided me with 10 being the best or highest rating he (Dr. McKenzie) would have received a "10". Excellent.

Procedure seemed fairly lengthy compared to similar procedures but maybe there were more canals involved. Maybe could have explained what was being done a little more as we were going through the process. Not trying to be critical - just helpful.
