This guy is all about ordering tests-many tests and the more invasive the better! This must be somehow motivated by financial incentive because as it turned out none of the tests were at all necessary. I'm an intelligent person, however this doc spoke to me in a manner that would require I have a medical degree to comprehend. It didn't take me long to find another GI doc and I suggest that you do the same!

Dr. McGahan is obviously intelligent, however he seriously lacks patient skills. He is big on running a lot of tests-invasive and questionably unnecessary. His manner is abrupt & condescending and while I can appreciate that not all docs possess a good bedside manner, I found zero benefit in visiting this specialist. He would make a better scientist than medical provider.

Mr. McGahan is outstanding. I'm a physician and know a lot about the choices for GI specialists. He is excellent in the technical aspects of the procedures and is very approachable.

I found Dr. McGahan to be very condescending and arrogant. I left the appointment wondering why he decided to work with patients rather than pursuing a career in research. He seems intelligent but completely lacks any bedside manner. He would ask me a question about a symptom and then interrupt me as soon as I began answering him (and I always try to only give as much detail as necessary - I understand that doctors are busy.) He acted like what I was telling him was unimportant and even irrelevant. I later found out that a family member of mine had a very similar experience. I found a great gastroenterologist at Northside and never went back to McGahan.
