in Garner, NC |
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.

There is nothing to complain about he is one of the best Doctor's I have ever seen in Smithfield, NC.
in Princeton NC |
Very good at explaining what was happening with me. Very thorough with my exam and follow up exam. Included my family in the discussions which was very important to me. Overall excellent rating.
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.
