Dr. McDonald and staff have always been very friendly and helpful. Dr. McDonald is very caring. He makes you feel like he is really concerned about your health and treatment. He LISTENS to what you say and answers any questions you have. He does not make you feel as if he is in a hurry to finish with you and go on to the next patient. I would be glad to recommend him to my family and friends.

Absolutely. Dr. McDonald is excellent, knowledgeable, friendly, caring, and easy to communicate with. Literally, he and Dr. Black saved my life. Also, the nurses and office folks are superior. Everyone at WK treats me with great care and encouragement. I had to change insurance to get to come back to WK, and was thankful to be able to do so. I know of no other place I would prefer to be getting treatment than at WK and with Dr. McDonald.

Dr. McDonald is one of the best if not the best doctors I have ever been to. He is kind, knowledgeable and understanding of what he is treating me for. He always comes in with a smile and leaves with a smile. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing his specialty. He is definitely a 5 out of 5. His rating would be excellent from me.
