Dr. McDonnell is not a kind doctor. He only wants to give a ton of injections. After he put me through his initial evaluation of me, I was quietly in tears. I felt like an inhumane object being tossed around on his cold hard examining table. I should have not come back after that but it was hard getting a referral to get help. It only got worse from there. I had come for multiple injections, none that helped and some he changed his mind the day of the procedure what I was getting.

Dr. McDonnell has been the only doctor in Evansville that has helped me with my pain. All the other doctors told me I would have to have a back fusion. But first I had to lose weight. Kind of hard when you are in so much pain you cannot walk. Dr. McDonnell listen to what I told him. He checked me over, and then he told me what I needed to do. And yes he gave me shots in my back and the pain level went for 10 to a 2. So great full I was recommended to him by Michelle Hirsch thank you.

He is rude, discounting of Diagnoses given by other doctors. He acts like a bully if you question him. He is verbally abusive. I would not recommend this doctor.
Evansville , IN |
He is a bully who is rude. He doesn't like to be questioned. He doesn't believe in fibromyalgia and thinks giving injections in your back should solve all issues. Compassion and listening are skills necessary for a doctor to be able to help patients and unfortunately I did not see any of it.
