Wonderful Doctor. Lovely office and staff. I had a spot on my forehead which Dr. McDonald diagnosed and biopsied. He caught it so early that the biopsy removed it completely and I needed no other treatment. I am very pleased!

Dr. McDonald has been my dermatologist, and my family's dermatologist, for over 20 years. He is an outstanding physician and person. Dr. McDonald is one of those rare physicians who is highly skilled and who always puts his patients first. In my opinion, anyone who throws rocks at him is a screwball.
