Semi-annual visit
Signed in went to lab. They sent me to doctor without lab work. I waited over an hour in the exam room. At one point I asked his rude nurse if it was going to be much longer. She told me they were waiting on the lab work. Advised her there was NO lab work. Told her I needed to eat as I was fasting. She told me to NEVER fast before my visit. I have been fasting for my visits for 7 years, what has changed? He examined, told me to schedule my mammogram and come back in 6 months! All in all, I was completely dissatisfied with the visit. My PPC physician does the same every 6 months. Why do I need an oncologist???

I think Dr McDonald is the best of the best of doctors. I have never had better treatments . He always asks if you are having any problems and also explains any and everything that I may ask about or something I need to know.

I get lab work done. Then go to doctor McDonald's office. Wait 30-40 minutes for him to come in and spend 3-5 minutes with me to give me lab results. Doesn't check anything. He could send lab order to lab near me. Lab would send him lab results and he or his nurse could call me with results. That's how my other doctor does it and when I go in for an office visit, she does a thorough check, my heart, etc. If he could adopt that practice it would save me time and gas!

I am a new patient, referred by Dr. Nickelson, who recently retired. Very friendly staff. Receptionist greeted me and took necessary information to register me for visit. Nurse friendly, professional and took necessary information before Dr. McDonald came in. Dr. McDonald has a calming personality. We reviewed and discussed my records and treatment going forward. This initial visit was very pleasant and professional
