My daughter needed to see Dr. MacDonald because of a hand injury. This is the third member of our family who has been Dr. MacDonald & everytime we see him he & his staff go above & beyond for us. I would highly recommend him to any friend or family in need of a hand specialist/surgeon.

Dr. McDonald performed an ulnar osteotomy on me in 2016 and was able to give me my life back after almost three years of nerve pain. I can’t recommend him highly enough. He gave me my life back.

Dr McDonald was very professional and willing to answer questions about the procedure (hand surgery) and what to expect. He was very patient and respectful of my concerns. We had a bit of confusion over my medicine and how it would impact my time after surgery. Recovery, including time in OT, was a bit overwhelming, But each patient is different , so hard to predict how any one patient will react and how difficult a time they might react. This surgery is a major surgery.so be prepared,

Fantastic surgeon and a tremendous asset to the Hughston Clinic , We are very lucky to have him in the southeastern area ! He has performed 2surgeries on me to date : for right thumb and wrist as well as a severely busted up collarbone that had been shattered in a ATV accident. He is very good to work with one scheduling as well as explaining in great detail how the surgery is going both before and after the procedure. I highly recommend this brilliant surgeon for your upcoming surgical needs

in 2011 i had my tricep reattached. dr. macdonald came in to visit with my wife and i and explain what was going to happen and that it all take about 30-45 min. 1.5hrs later he came out of surgery in a rush to apologize to my wife and explain that after drilling 3 holes for the reattachment and almost completing,he didnt like what he saw and un-did the whole thing,drilled a 4th hole and completely re-did everything. 100% stand up Dr that takes pride in everything he does!!
