Dr. McPherson is a wonderful compassionate & caring physician - we have seen him now for 14 years - remains the same as he was in 2004.

Dr. McPherson and his team provided great care and took time to explain everything that was happening. I never felt like I was uninformed about my testing and treatment plan.
