    My experience at the Celebration office and with Dr. McDonald has been consistently positive. It has been easy to schedule an office visit for a reasonably close time. My wait time in the waiting room, following check in for an office visit, has been short. The staff and doctor have been consistently professional, friendly and effective.

    Dr. John McDonald makes Celebration Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Institute shine! He exemplifies what a quality doctor should demonstrate-kindhearted, patient, and respectful of your time. He helped me recover from a shoulder injury, and I am so fortunate to have been led to such an excellent doctor. Many thanks for having him on your staff.
