Dr Macina is a wonderful Doctor she was my moms Dr until my mom passed away. Dr Macina always treated my mom with respect, complete understanding how talking directly to my mom even when Dr knew my mom was not understanding, but always made her still feel in charge of her medical visit. Dr Macina always told me the truth and was spot on. When I’m of age I hope to be her patient.

Dr. Macina is able to fit her effective care to the values and priorities of her patients and family caregivers . Very person-centered and an extremely excellent communicator --Respectful and culturally competent, she explains health status, and your choices for care. I have been a caregiver, privileged to be included in discussions for care, and a patient of Dr. Macina's for over 20 years. She helps you in preventive strategies remaining consistently nonjudgmental and compassionate.
