      My 77 year old husband and I are extremely impressed with Dr. Mackenzie and his assistants, Kim and Lena. Everyone is so friendly, focused and thorough. We have been looking for a long time to have the right surgeon for John's major back surgery, We finally found the right surgeon and staff. Kay and John Reynolds
      Dr. MacKenzie is great, however, his nurse is a witch with a Capitol B! She is rude and has an attitude which makes you want to vomit. Unfortunately if you want to see Dr. MacKenzie you have to put up with her attitude! Otherwise find another doctor.

      I am so thankful that I found Dr. Donald MacKenzie. His specialty gave me my life back. I just had my 2nd Back Surgery on 3/15/2016, and I'm already back to normal. Dr. Mackenzie and his staff are very pleasant and they all take time to listen to my questions and explain things to me. After both back surgeries I was walking the next day with NO PAIN. I appreciate everything that Dr. MacKenzie and his staff, Kim and Lena have done for me. I am so thankful that he is my Doctor. Nancy Bell

      Both times I have required surgery Dr. Mackenzie has diagnosed my problem prior to all testing being done! His skill is beyond compare, is topped off by excellent bedside manner and a delightful personality. The outcome of both surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I am pain free with no limitations on my activities. I would not hesitate to send anyone for his care, not something often heard when dealing with the spine. My biggest hope is that he doesn't retire before I leave this world!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. MacKenzie's Care Philosophy

      I work without a PA or nurse so that I can directly interact with my patients and so that they can have direct access to me. I try to present a warm caring environment in the clinic and have chosen my employees carefully to reflect this philosophy. In addistion to spending time listening to my patients, I spend time educating them on their condition and on the various options that may be available for treatment so that they can make informed choices about their treatment. When it comes to surgical intervention, I practice up-to-date spinal surgery using safe, proven techniques. I am involved in limited clinical trials and no patient is ever pressured into treatment they do not feel comfortable with. I am Board Certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (1984).
