Dr. McGregor

"Dr. McGregor was excellent. He talked to me and provided all the options. His staff was attentive and very accommodating. After surgery, I saw Dr. McGregor every day in my recovery room - all 7 days! His team of physician assistants, attendings and the nursing staff at Allegheny Health were top notch. I would recommend him and the team at Allegheny Health to anyone!"
