Dr. McDonald saved my life. She did my spinal cord surgery and I'm only walking because of her. She took care of my pain like no other.
Sherman, TX |
Excellent physician. Thanks Jessica Hash
Plano, TX |
I am a retired Naval Officer and Dr. McDonald is one of the very few orthopedic surgeons who will accept Tricare. She gave me excellent care and was able to resolve my very painful back problem. And that is why it has not been necessary for me to see her in the last two years.
