If your situation is an emergency, first call your nearest hospital emergency room as Dr. McMahon may be unable to return your call immediately.

Dr. McMahon does not email.

During the initial telephone conversation she will ask you to describe what brought you to contact her.  This conversation allows you to ask Dr. McMahon questions and allows her to determine if her skills meet your needs.
