About me

Philosophy of care

"Psychiatric conditions have a biological basis making them complex. Factor in any psychosocial stressors a person may be experiencing, as well as other medical issues, and that complexity increases. My goal is to improve the quality of each patient’s life by first understanding their situation and then working together to find the best treatment plan. I believe that medications are only one component of a treatment plan, and although important – even critical – they should be minimized as much as possible."

With all my visits with Dr. McMahon I feel I can talk to him about anything, He know what my problem is: D.W.S with ataxia and central virtgo causing organic anxiety and mood change and understands how it afects my life.Dr. McMahon seems not to give up on my and always willing to try me a different medication if he feels there's one available that would benefit me without serious side affects. I feel he's a 5 Star Dr. Psychiatrist. No complaints. I can not say Dr. McMahon is the best Psyciatrist possible. He's the only one I see and seen in that department.

Dr. McMahon always listens thoroughly and is very willing to discuss possible routes with regard to my medication options. I always feel that I'm ultimately in control and he let's me take the informed path forward. In that regard he's much better than previous providers from other health care systems.

He was unaware that I was seeing him in distress. He's always late to see me.

Dr. McMahon is great. The downfall is not being able to get in w/him sooner but also doesn't help w/being short on doctor's dealing w/mental health.
