“I facilitate change in my patients by building on their virtues, rather than focusing solely on removing “character defects.”

About Dr. McGee
Dr. McGee’s approach to recovery is not just recovery through treatment; it’s recovery through integrated care for the mind, body and spirit.
Michael McGee, MD, believes that every person deserves psychiatric and behavioral healthcare with a human connection, clinical expertise, spiritual support, and private, personal, compassionate delivery, no matter where you are.
