Dr. Desirae McKee, MD - Reviews

Jul 23, 2020

Patient

Physician has gone above and beyond over the last 5 yrs, making herself available for concerns, unfortunately I have not been the easiest of patients with complications related to multiple injuries, but her dedication to her practice is remarkable, and truly feel I have had the best results one could ask for through her patience and perseverance. She has rehabilitated me back to a functioning capacity.

Patient

Dr. Desiree McKee is a very compassionate professional doctor I would highly recommend her to anyone she did an amazing job on my grandsons arm and our visits with her get better and better she’s very promising that things are going to get better when my grandson was at his lowest she gave them hope and inspired him So if it wasn’t for her he probably would’ve given up on himself she’s giving him his arm back and we thought it was impossible so for that we are very grateful made God bless her always

Patient

Dr. Mckee seemed to not have time for me at all. My OT had some concerns about a ligament in my hand and when I tried to voice those concerns, Dr. Mckee blew me off and wouldn't listen. Next thing I know she's injecting me without even telling me what the side effects would be. My thumb was numb for the rest of the day, making it difficult to work. She told me after the injection that I would be numb for about an hour, but I woke up the next morning still unable to feel my fingertip. She told me to come back in 6 weeks to see if I was "magically cured". I don't want a surgeon that relies on magic to cure her patients. Additionally, she told me if the injection didn't work we didn't have anymore options because it isn't surgical. Dr. Mckee does not have time for you and does not listen to her patients!

1 Ma Cheverez – Oct 16, 2019

Dr McKee made a bad situation (broke wrist) into a pleasant experience. She explained her plan to repair the wrist and then the recovery time. She is very concerned with the situation and then did a great job in repairing the wrist. I am pain free and back to normal. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of surgery

She was thorough with her exam, scheduled me for surgery and now my problem is gone. She is very polite and excellent in what she does. Would recommend my friends and family to her.

Kathy Paiz in NM, NM – Jan 23, 2019

Patient

Dr. McKee, took extra time to make sure I understood the procedure I was having. The surgery was a great success. She also added a nerve and pain block to make sure post op would not be as uncomfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Mckee, she has integrity, looks for other options first, knowledgeable and compassionate.

Dawn in Carlsbad – May 29, 2018

Patient

Dr McKee is amazing! She really put me at ease with her confidence and knowledge. She takes the time to talk to you and listens to concerns and answers questions. I had arthroplasty done on my right hand, by her, and I'm now having my left done with her. That is the comfort and confidence I have in her!!!!! From time to time you may have to wait, because she cares and does take as much time as needed to provide an amazing level of service!!!!

Steve Aikens in CLOVIS – May 17, 2018

Patient

Positively the best. I doctor shopped her and everyone I spoke with offered her praise. I see why. Was previously advised the ONLY possibility to help my wrist from a 50 year old injury was total fusion. Before she did the surgery, she told me it was possible I needed PARTIAL fusion. I told her she had permission to take whatever measure she deemed necessary. No fusion. She remove damaged bones from the wrist instead. ROM is limited but the wrist is the best it's been in 50 years. Thanks

Dan Swanner in Midland, TX – May 17, 2018

Patient

I found Dr McKee to be the right Dr for me. When I was referred to her my hand was in shambles due to poor after care from my local physician surgery. She immediately got me going in the right direction with her care and mgt and within a few short months my hand was in great shape thank's to her care!!!

Dr. McKee did an excellent job with my de quervain's syndrome surgery. I was back at work in 2 weeks. She is surrounded by an outstanding group of resident physicians that she mentors.

3 Vern L Breitenstein in Lubbock, TX – Oct 27, 2017

Patient

I experienced an injury from a spinning edger blade that almost severed my hand from my arm. It shattered my radius into small pieces and caused much tissue injury. I am a retired nurse, nursing since 1969 and my years have been in the ICU's, ER and as a scrub nurse in the OR. I have assisted surgeons in the OR with similar injuries and the repair of those injuries were not done as well as Dr. McKee had done. She was able to put back together the bones, etc. I now have the use of my arm and hand

Nicole Acosta in Texhoma, OK – Sep 25, 2017

Patient

Dr. McKee was awesome! My daughter is 8 years old and she had smashed her finger in the door at school and partially amputated her thumb and are primary doctor Referred us to Dr. MaKay and he told us she needed surgery but he could not get us into surgery that day so he called Dr. McKee and she told him that she can fit her in to do surgery. And she said she will get her in around 2:30 and right at 2:30 they took her back and got her fixed. She is a wonderful Dr. Thank you!!

Hunting for gold? Look no more when scheduling an appointment with Dr. Desirae McKee. Truth of the matter is, gold is but a piece of dirt next to the quality of care and value you get when allowing Dr. McKee to be part of your health improvement journey. She is the true Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. A renaissance woman. If I were ever to try out for Man VS Wild, I would want Dr. McKee on my pack list. Since 2011 I've seen her change hundreds of lives for the better.

Robert Dodson in Grapevine, Texas – Aug 19, 2017

Patient

I have collaborated with Dr. McKee for the last 7 years and I can honestly say she is one of most caring physicians I have ever encountered. Her passion for excellent patient care is inspiring. She always wants the best for her patients and communicates clearly with the entire medical team. Thank you Dr. McKee for always putting your patients first!!

R Scott in lubbock, tx – Jun 24, 2017

Patient

I am always impressed with Dr. McKee's availability and genuine expertise. As a referring PCP, she has always done a great job with my patients, who always come back singing her praises. Today, as the father of a son who decided to break his thumb, she not only was "another doctor", but she was "our doctor." She made my son feel comfortable and at ease through the use of humor and talking to him on his level. She was aware of it being Summer-time, and even provided a waterproof cast. A+ care!

Ashley McCart in Lovington, NM – May 18, 2017

Patient

Very encouraging and flexible with my needs and desires. She was willing to work with me and listen attentively at every turn, while being willing to be blunt where needed in the options for my case.

Dr. McKee is an excellent orthopaedic surgeon. I trust her knowledge and skill implicitly, and would gladly refer any friends and family to her if they express their need for a hand surgeon.

Aaron in Lubbock, TX – Feb 14, 2017

Patient

Dr. McKee has been great to me and my family. I was severely burned about two years ago and she has been with me through nearly all of this ordeal. Very patient, friendly and an all around great surgeon. I can't say enough good things!

Linda Peterson in Lubbock, TX – Feb 10, 2017

Patient

I was referred to Dr. McKee for trigger finger in right hand and numbness in two fingers of left hand. Dr. McKee performed A1 Trigger Release on all five digits of right hand in July and I have no more pain. She performed Cubital tunnel release (mini) on left elbow in November and am back at the gym working out and symptoms are improving.

Deborah Regina Johnston in Lubbock, TX – Feb 09, 2017

Patient

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. McKee. She takes the time to explain in a way that a person who is not in the medical field will understand, she made me feel as if she definitely had my best interests in mind, and I believe she is an excellent surgeon. Thanks to Dr. McKee, I have the use of my hand much sooner than I expected. This was the second surgery Dr. McKee performed for me, and both times, I've been thankful for her skills and her bedside manner.

Jenna in Lubbock, TX – Feb 09, 2017

Patient

Dr McKee took such great care of my daughter. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. You know it is a mothers highest praise when she says she would allow a surgeon to operate on her child. I wouldn't think twice, DR. McKee is wonderful! She was also careful to explain things to my daughter to gain her trust. It meant so much to me that she took time to make sure I understood but also cared that my little girl knew what to expect. I felt like she had all the time in the world!

KayLyn in Lubbock, TX – Feb 07, 2017

Patient

1 Jim Henderson in Winters, TX – Jan 27, 2017

Patient

Our grandson Kyler Cook , has had two operations by Dr. McKee in the last six months, this lady is the best hand surgeon I have ever met, and since I had my hand operated on by another Dr. fifteen years ago, I know the difference between a good surgeon and a GREAT SURGEON !

Gary L. Jones in Clovis, NM – Jan 26, 2017

Patient

Had my 4th visit with Dr. McKee and each time I've been more and more impressed. She quickly diagnosed my problem, explain how she arrived at the diagnosis, and told me what my options were. All of my questions and concerns were answered. If anyone out there wants to see the BEST hand and upper extremity specialist in the WORLD, Dr. McKee will be your choice! Thank you, Dr. McKee, for your magnificent care!

1 Cynthia in Lubbock, TX – Jan 21, 2017

Patient

As a registered nurse for over 30 years, I was selective in choosing a surgeon to operate on my elbow. I was pleased with Dr. McKee's professional approach, bedside manner and after care. I recommend her for anyone needing hand or arm surgery.

1 Tameka E in Lubbock, TX – Jan 19, 2017

Patient

Dr. Mckee is a wonderful doctor/surgeon and I would refer my family and friends to her any day. Before she performed my wrist surgery, she gave me several options that I could do to help strengthen my wrist. She has a very calm demeanor and her patients care is very high priority. I wish I could give her 10 stars for the miracle she worked on my wrist.

1 (Chesley) Doyle Gammill in Lubbock, TX – Jan 19, 2017

Patient

My medical visits with Dr. McKee were exemplary and very commendable. This physician is of superior quality, to include her charming personality and bearing. Dr. McKee's staff is as fine as I have ever seen and her "Assistant," Kevin, is likewise proficient and a tremendous asset to her entire staff. From our first session through my wrist surgery to Dr. McKee's explanations in the Recovery Room, to our office visits, my wife and I could not be more pleased. My sincere thanks are to all involved

1 Lubbock, TX – Jan 17, 2017

I am 58. needed a good doctor, and I found GREAT doctor ! she listened, looked, and explained everything. she was very gentle in her manner, very patient. took great care to help me be good as new. there is not enough stars here to give her.

John K.C. in Big Spring, TX – Jan 06, 2017

Patient

At my initial appointment w/Dr. McKee she went over my medical record and at the end of the visit stated "It may take some time, but we're going to put you back together." That is exactly what she has done -and continues to do- and I trust her expertise completely. She explains what physically is wrong or damaged and what can be done to correct the issue or alleviate pain, and step by step she has medically accomplished what she stated she would; I'm confident that will continue in the future.

Leeta in Lubbock, TX – Jan 04, 2017

Patient

DrMcKee is a kind compasionate physician. She took care of my husband after a motorcycle accident and he has recovered with minimal residual complaints. As he saw him quickly after his accident and he was taken to surgery to help prevent permanent damage. I have also witnessed the caregiver to burn patients, gun shot wounds and carpal tunnel releases. I would not hesitate to recommend her or request her to be my physician in a heartbeat.

Harold L in Lubbock, Texas – Jan 03, 2017

Dr. McKee is a gift to our area-she is an unbelievably talented surgeon! She listens and explains all options and will honestly answer any and all questions you ask without rushing you. Her surgical skills are exceptional - if you need hand surgery she is the only doctor I would even consider or recommend to family or friends. She is a top-notch caring doctor! With Dr. McKee you are in "good hands" (no pun intended!) Her staff is excellent also.

5 Christie S. in LUBBOCK – Apr 01, 2016

Patient

Dr. McKee performed my carpal tunnel release surgery. I cannot express how pleased I have been with this surgeon. She was informant and answered all of my questions. Everything with the surgery was excellent. Her team was like we'll oiled machine from the moment I checked in for surgery, until the moment I walked out, everything went as smooth as silk. Don't question the decision to use this Dr. She is the best!
