Didn't hold back in giving her opinion which is what all doctors should do as the experts.

Dr. McClennan is so knowledgeable and explains really complex stuff in an easy to understand way. She is efficient in the room and also is a good listener. I love how no nonsense she is, but she also has a sense of humor.

Dr. McLennan is a wonderful doctor! I saw her with my first pregnancy. At certain appointments I did feel rushed but with every visit, she made sure all of my questions were answered. She recalls past visits and checks in on previous health concerns and gives valuable, straightforward advice, and perspective.

While it took a while to get an appointment with Dr. McLennan, I appreciate her level of care, her sincerity in my health and her explanations of the how and why of her care. She is fantastic and worth the wait.

Dr McLennan was clearly very busy and gave only short responses to my concerns. In a follow up call was almost dismissive and clearly irritated with my questions.

Not my regular doctor, but very lovely woman.

This is my first pregnancy and the doctor laughed at my questions and told me to relax! I had a list of questions I was waiting to ask a medical professional and was so disappointed to have to go back to pregnancy books for answers instead of the provider.

Dr. McClennan is super smart and she does a good job of making things easy for my husband and I to understand. We are college graduates, but not doctors, and we appreciate her explanations.

Dr. McLennan is the best doctor I've ever had. She took me through two pregnancies, one C-section delivery, and is now my routine gynecologist. I can't imagine a more capable, knowledgeable, caring, and considerate physician.

Dr. McLennan is an excellent doctor. She is caring, professional, and thorough. I feel at ease asking her questions and discussing OB care with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an OB.

The Dr kind of barged in and started asking me questions in a very unpolluted way. [...] It was very unprofessional

09/07/2015
I came to Dr. McLennan to talk about issues of infertility. She was dismissive at first, and told me that I just needed to "relax and stop stressing" (the same (kind of bad) advice she gave me 6 months ago). But, once I made it clear that I needed and wanted to take more concrete steps, she was accommodating.

Provider did not recall past visits. This was disappointing since I have been her patient for the past few years.
