Waited for an hour and ended up with few minutes discussion with doctor. He examined the same was as that of my FP/GP and charged me $200 (for 5 min probably). Nothing different from GP in terms of examination, but billing is totally different from GP. Not worth of the service/visit

I would like to pass on my sincere gratitude to Kate Deford for her unsurpassed compassion and spot on care she has provided throughout my surgery and recovery. Dr. McDonald hit the jackpot when he brought Kate on as his Physician Assistant and I want all to know what she brings to this first class practice. She is a true professional with the knowledge in her chosen field and the people skills to make her patients feel secure in the direction and decisions of the healthcare they are receiving.

Let me start by saying that Dr. John McDonald is a truly exceptional professional and his attention to detail is unsurpassed in his field. Not only do I believe in the surgical skill of Dr. John McDonald but also his sensitivity, kind charm and gentle demeanor. Dr. McDonald cares about a quick recovery and absolute perfection in his procedures. I would highly recommend Dr. McDonald for any and all knee, hip, & shoulder concerns. His PA, Kate is outstanding & his entire staff are warm & friendly.

Dr. McDonald is obviously very well-trained and has great bedside manner. I am very active and had been working out on a torn meniscus for several years. I felt very anxious and upset at the idea of surgery, but Dr. McDonald explained why surgery was the best option, and took the time to answer all my questions. Part of my meniscus was removed, but I only have 2 tiny scars and I'm already back at the gym! My knee feels great and it's been just under 3 weeks since my surgery! So thankful!
