    I believe Dr. McCormick is one of the most talented physicians around and I feel lucky to have been treated by him. Regrettably I live in Northern Nevada where we have no such talented physicians. But after my surgery I feel Dr. McCormick should be the benchmark for the best of doctors. Thank you

    Dr. Mccormick was very easy to talk too and put my wife's mind to rest that things were progressing well. He told her she was doing a good job in changing the dressing 3 times a day and was pleased with the care our wound clinic in Idaho was providing.
