The first thing he said to me was "I'm not giving you any pain medicine". I only wanted the issue repaired and could not make him understand I wasn't there for pain medicine. He was rude, condescending, impatient and did not take time to explain his plan of care. He never repaired the issue with 3 separate injections so I had to see a neurosurgeon who corrected the problem after nerve conduction studies were done. I wasted months of agony with McDonald. Do NOT recommend him!!!

I work in construction and can't thank Dr. McDonald enough for working me in for injections just before my insurance was terminated. You know that wasn't his problem, but he and his staff made it happen and I can't thank them enough. If you call anywhere else that probably wouldn't have gotten MRI and Injections done within a matter of days. Again many thanks. I feel so much better.

I'm not a fan of pain which most are not, but I really have enjoyed the care I received from Dr. McDonald and his staff. He really listen to all my problems even the not related ones. I have referred my Brother and my Dad to see him and they both have received excellent care as well.
