I am very pleased with the outcome of my Rotator. I was fearful at first but Dr MacDonald and his staff were awesome. I was Leary of pain but it has been minimal. After surgery Dr MacDonald thoroughly explained the surgery outcome. I highly recommend him.

Dr McDonald was professional and genuinely interested in determining what the cause of my symptoms were and the best treatment. He advised me to reconsult if needed and provided me an opportunity for questions and any concerns I may have . I highly recommend him and his staff.
