Dr. McClung - Medical Coverage for Partnered Schools
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks for the world class medical care that I received during and after my recent surgery for a torn meniscus. Dr. Glen McClung should be recognized for his personal attention, care and professional abilities. Beacon should be the only place for someone considering orthopaedic care.
My son Jackson hurt his knee playing football on a Sunday. Dr. McClung squeezed him in to his Anderson office the following day. The facility is spectacular; the staff was wonderful; Dr. McClung was great with Jackson, really listening to him as a patient. I cannot say enough great things about the whole experience!
Thank you so much for the wonderful professional care you provided to my daughter Veronica during her knee surgery. Your kindness, genuine concern for my daughter’s well-being, and skills as a great surgeon made for a successful surgery and recovery for my daughter. I’m very appreciative for your dedication, professionalism and work ethic.
