Dr. MacDonald never sat down while talking to me. He stood there looking at me with a smug look on his face. He made light of my condition. Did not discuss the medication he prescribed and did not discuss a maintenance medication normally given to people with my condition.

Scheduled appt at 1 having to wait in lobby while others pile in to wait. Had to wait over a hour to be seen even though I was there on time. Can't call in and speak to the front desk. Schedule phone rings and rings with no voice mai Earliest next appointments to be seen are made 8 months out regardless your issues or pain. Doesn't seem to believe my issues or pain even after being in a auto accident where I was hit knocked out etc. In a speed of over 50 mph.
