April 29, 2021
Dr. McKenzie is an outstanding Endocrinologist! As a person who has been to several different specialists over the past 18 years and was told by one after the other that 'your labs are normal, there is nothing we can do for you'� I have to say spending just 10 minutes in my initial visit with him, he showed his abilities to be a great doctor! He knew right away what could be the cause of my symptoms just by reviewing my basic serum vitamin levels. Ordered a series of labs and his diagnosis was correct! Going gluten free has been a big challenge for me, but I feel the best I have in soooo many years! So thank you Dr. McKenzie and his MA for all your help.

February 09, 2021
Dr. McKenzie
February 08, 2021
Dr McKenzie... He's not attached to standard TSH parameters and realizes that not everyone must comply with them. This observation has led to what may be a break through in helping me determine my own TSH levels that correct Hyper- and Hypo-thyroid levels that correct heart SVTs, exacerbated Essential Tremor, fatigue, and malaise.
February 08, 2021
The staff member who took my call after the visit. She clarified how I was supposed to get the refills, and also set up my next appointment.
February 05, 2021
Dr. Sheldon, is very nice, and knowledgeable. He always takes the time to answer my questions and never rushes me. He is very smart and I feel he really wants to help me feel better.
January 30, 2021
Dr. McKenzie listens to my questions and answers them clearly without being condescending or acting as though it was a nuisance to him. Then he makes sure that I don't have further questions. I never feel that he is rushing.
January 28, 2021
Dr. McKenzie is a very caring physician with an excellent bedside manner. Any questions I answered with a less than excellent mark is due to my difficulty in understanding Dr. McKenzie's accent. Which is not entirely his issue but mine also. I am 80 years old and my hearing and understanding is somewhat compromised .
January 27, 2021
Dr McKenzie and his assistant Melissa have always been incredibly professional and knowledgeable at every appointment both in person and through video
January 27, 2021

December 18, 2020
Excellent in all ways.
December 17, 2020
I was referred to Dr. McKenzie with some very specific and not insignificant problems. He explained that there were several possible causes, some more serious than others. I am not a doctor, but I understood exactly what he was saying because he made sure a layperson could understand. He moved quickly to rule out some causes and successfully identified the problem. He prescribed medications that actually worked to fix the problem. He explained the risks of the medications and carefully monitored me after I started the medications to insure that I was not suffering any of these potentially serious side effects. This is how every patient hopes it will go.
December 14, 2020
Everyone is fantastic, especially the ones who answer the phones. They go beyond the line of helping me

Dr. McKinzie
November 09, 2020
Dr. McKenzie is the third specialist I've seen about my thyroid. Unlike the other two he will not settle with me having a condition that is going untreated. Instead we will wait until I'm able to do the necessary tests that I need to figure out the entirety of my condition. This has given me confidence of knowing that it will not be overlooked and ignored any longer. I appreciate the doctor's care and concern in addressing these issues with me along with his knowledge.
October 30, 2020
Everyone was great. I started seeing Doctor McKenzie at the start of the pandemic, they were on it with safety from the start. I have called and emailed and always had fast responses to my questions. The information I have received has been fantastic. I do my research, and McKenzie is at the top of his game, as is his office staff! Last visit, through MyChart, I emailed information the morning of the visit and he was referring to it as we spoke a few hours later,, fantastic! I have done that with in person visits and the doctor didn't have the information.
October 29, 2020
Dr McKenzie has always provided excellent care
October 26, 2020
Yes! Dr. M has done a wonderful job in helping me lower my A1C! It has gone down 2 points over my last 2 visits. He has explained to me (very patiently) why he is lowering a medication (the first time it was the insulin, the second time a pill); and helped me to find good solutions to problems. He has celebrated several victories with me (loosing weight, A1C going down). I feel like he listens AND cares!
October 22, 2020
My child was sick I left a message and was called back with care and concern by both the medical assistant and Dr. McKenzie my son is a diabetes for seven years multiple doctors and Dr. McKenzie is the best doctor he has ever had

August 23, 2020

I have come to expect excellence at Asante Endocrinology - Grants Pass. Everyone I have dealt with (excepting [ ], who is no longer with this office) has been professional and helpful. Receptionists, nurses, and medical assistants as well as Dr. McKenzie and Educator Kristen [ ], have always tried to answer my questions, explain procedures, and help with any difficulties. When I was having difficulties with my insurance company covering prescription medications, the medical assistant and doctor were able to resolve it. The office staff have rescheduled appointments as needed. I have always been treated with respect.

April 24, 2020
My doctor is the best
April 24, 2020
Dr. McKenzie provided an insulin correction scale and insulin Kwik pen when I was without an insulin pump for a day. Also his assistant, Aaron, communicated my questions to Dr. McKenzie and called me with the doctor's answers. He also stayed after hours so I could pick up the items I needed. Both of them relieved a lot of my stress when my previous insulin pump quit working, late in the afternoon.
April 16, 2020
Dr.Mckenzie is as thoughtful,caring and supportive for a physician involved in the most difficult battle in my life. The encouragement he gives helps me to know I'm not alone in this difficulty.
