    1ST time seeing *Dr. Mclean. These checkups are normal and nothing out of the ordinary.

  • 11/28/2017

    The physicians talk not only to me as the parent on my level as a nurse, but also what is most important is they talk to my child on her level to make sure she understands everything and to see if she had questions or concerns.


We're sorry, Dr. McLean is not currently accepting new patients. If you are an existing patient, you may contact the office directly at 336-716-4085.
