I brought my Father-in-law from Oklahoma in for an appointment with Dr. McKenzie immediately following mine. He was very impressed with the care he received. We were so greatful when my father-in-law needed an Echo and they were immediately able to fit him in and do it so he wouldn't have to make another extra trip from Oklahoma just for that. Wonderful/Thoughtful care!!

I have told anyone interested that Dr McKenzie is a great doctor. And that Legacy Heart Center is a good office. I referred my sister there.

My fair comment is concerning her nurse. He was fine, but he needs a nurse with some better people skills.

I would recommend this doctor and clinic wholeheartedly if the scheduling and wait time issues were resolved. Not until that improves.
