I have lived with back pain for over 15 years. After multiple doctors, tests, all with no improvement, I was referred to Dr. Mackenzie. From the first visit to my recovery appointments, he was engaged, hands-on, informative, caring and an excellent surgeon. I am now pain-free and I would highly recommend Dr. Mackenzie to anyone seeking an educated, compassionate surgeon and team. His entire staff goes beyond professionalism, they treat you like family. They have rekindled my faith in healthcare.

Terrible, went several times to see him and always misdiagnosed the problem, finally decided to find another doctor. Recommends a procedure and the diagnosis was wrong! The staff and nurse are the most ugliest, rude witches you can imagine. Terrible, stay away.

I used Dr MacKenzie 15 years ago when I needed a treating physician, I returned to him recently when I needed a surgeon. I recommend him with no reservations.

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

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!
