I met with Dr. MacDonald today for ongoing lower back pain and Sciatica. The staff was friendly and attentive upon my arrival. My wait time was short. Before I could complete the "New Patient" Documents, I was called back to exam room. Dr. MacDonald took the time to speak with me, allowed me to speak without interrupting me, addressed my questions and took the time to review the MRI on the screen with me. I have been to 3 different doctors recently to address my issues. I was not satisfied with my treatment nor the condescending way I was addressed by the other doctors. I will be having surgery in the near future and I believe my problems will be addressed by Dr. MacDonald instead of random shots in the dark the other doctors took. I will follow up after the surgery.

Absolutely the best! I had a great experience with Dr. MacDonald for my spinal fusion at Northside Cherokee Hospital. I was very well informed and educated on the procedure, and his office staff was efficient and available as needed. My care was excellent, healing smooth and as expected. I couldn’t be happier with the care I received. I highly recommend Dr. MacDonald!

Dr. MacDonald is an excellent physician. I had lost all hope of find a surgical resolution and he gave that back to me. He actually listens to his patients and very thorough. Great personality. Highly recommend if you are in need of a neurosurgeon.

Failed back surgery May 29 2015 left me deformed and disabled. Now he’s a brain trauma spec- guess many of them can’t complain. I went from spinal fusion straight to a rehab center. No follow up. I’m still broken.

I’ve had two procedures with Dr. MacDonald: a herniated disc in T-4,T-5 December 2015. He was great explaining the procedure and listening to me. I went back to him this week and performed a cervical spinal fusion C5-C6, C6-C7. He came in ahead of time and we had a great conversation. He followed up with me early evening in the hospital room. It is perfectly clear with Dr. MacDonald that his goal is to do what he can to get you out of pain. Simply the best! (This is after trying Emory)

He is the greatest surgeon I ever found, & the kindest man that I have ever had the honor to know. For 1.5 years I got bounced around with horrible doctors at Emory who said I had herniated discs and wouldn't listen as the pain kept getting worse. Dr. MacDonald listened, he looked & found my L5 was shattered, the discs didn't heal due to bones piercing them, & swelling on the nerves damaged them. I believe if I met him first I would be walking. He is a wonderful doctor and treats you like family

If my son, husband or any other friend or family member needed the expertise of a neurosurgeon with my eyes closed I would take them to Dr. MacDonald and his team. He fix my back with his blessed expertise and from the beginning was honest and caring never rushing to finish with me and move to the next patient. If you are worried about your surgery and looking for a second opinion go to him. He was my second opinion and the last one.

Dr. MacDonald injured my spinal cord during my surgery. Although I knew the risks of surgery, this doctor never informed me of the injury and didn't explain my paralysis. The hospital failed to inform me either. i was quickly transferred to a rehabilitation hospital and Dr. MacDonald did no follow up at all. I have suffered and struggled for 3 years and I am 100% disabled. I just wish he would've been more forthcoming . Maybe that's why he left Texas.

Dr. MacDonald is an accomplished surgeon with terrific patient empathy and consideration. After suffering with spinal stenosis for years Dr. MacDonald recommended a procedure to correct my issues. I am grateful for his skill and expertise in performing the procedure to the point that I now feel like a new person. Minimal recovery time. I would highly recommend Dr. MacDonald.

Dr. Bart McDonald is an excellent, knowledgeable and extremely caring physician. I went to him for lumbar surgery recommendations and options. After speaking about my symptoms, he recommended my neck be checked and found I had severe cervical spinal stenosis which needed correction ASAP. I underwent surgery in November and had a fusion from c-4 thru c-7 and he did a phenomenal job!! I cannot express how grateful I am to him and his staff for taking such good care of me. I feel great! Thank you
