Review of Dr. McDonald

- in Sandpoint, ID |

Dr. McDonald did 2 surgeries on my Neck, a Laminectomy in 2001, and a 3 level Fusion in 2006, results were pretty good. never did completely take away my arm pain, but made it tolerable, about 4 or 5 years later, started experience extreme arm pain again, , "waking up with the pain like (L) hand stuck in boiling water". Contacted Dr. McDonald again and went through work-up, and all they had to say was there was nothing wrong. have learned to control pain with certain stretches.

Review of Dr. McDonald

-Coeur D Alene, ID |

Ten years ago I was having serious shoulder pain and my GP sent me to a specialist. The specialist ruled out shoulder issues and suggested I had neck issues. I was recommended to see Dr. McDonald. It was confirmed that I had two bulging disks causing my spinal chord to be pinched by 50% in two spots. Dr. McDonald did the surgery and fused three vertebrae together. He told me I would have the same movement as an 18 year old afterwards; I was 47. The surgery went perfectly and I am still fine.

Review of Dr. McDonald

- in Spirit Lake, ID |

I saw the Dr the first time in. He immediately suggested the procedure that I needed and went about getting it done. His bedside manner is cordial and I didn't even meet his PA until I had a complication. The staff and the Dr have been great in every regard. My complication was not his doing but he is working to get it resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible. I have the highest regard for him and his staff. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

Review of Dr. McDonald


He is the most arrogant Dr I have ever been in contact with. In caring, doesn't care what you have to say or how to fix you. He has his PA do all his examination and he never examines you one. This Dr is horrible in the sense of caring at all for his patient. It is obvious he is in the business strictly for money.
