Dr. Feeney has been my PCP for several years and I have been very satisfied with his care. He is a good listener, caring, concerned, and cooperative when I have requested referrals or prescriptions to aid my afflictions or to avert illnesses. I am very happy with Dr. Feeney's health care.

Worst experience with any doctor - ever! 1) First initial visit, he didn't show up. 2) 2nd visit, he left after asking two questions to go help another patient. 3) 3rd visit, I had 5 questions written down. He stated that I had too many question, and that he wasn't going to answer them all.

from my first visit and through the whole process of fixing my deviated septum Dr Macdonald was great through it all. My procedures were non cosmetic and strictly functional in nature and in completing my time with Dr Macdonald my quality of life was markedly improved.
