I highly recommend Dr McDonald & WK Cancer Center! I was and am still confident I am receiving the best care possible by knowledgeable and capable Doctors and nurses! I was and continue to be treated with respect, compassion, knowledge and the best care in cancer treatment. I go every 6 months for my ckup with the same attention as if it were the first day! Dr McDonald, Dr Durci and all the nurses and staff are my angles in white!

Being diagnosed with ovarian cancer is frightening. Dr. McDonald came highly recommended by my family doctor as well as my surgeon. Soon afterwards I met with him, he sat in a chair across from me, on a piece of paper he wrote down each step he had planned for my treatment ... explaining every step in detail. He always takes his time to explain your progress, also asks at the end of each visit if I had any questions. I have never felt rushed. He is a matter of fact doctor that genuinely cares for his patients. I wasn’t alone in my fight, it was ”WE”. I would recommend Dr McDonald to anyone in need of a great oncologist. Dr. McDonald is a brilliant doctor. I have been truly blessed to have him on my life saving team. Thank you Dr. Chip McDonald!

Have taken my wife there 3 times and each time is the same. He is a professional, very courteous, and understanding. I would recommend him to anyone who needs his services. He will take time to talk to you and answer your questions. And you don't have to wait forever to see him. He is more on schedule than any other professional that I have been in the Shreveport area

a week ago The care Dr. McDonald gave and what he said he would do, was completely opposite. He acts like a supportive/proactive doctor, but when it comes down to it, you are just another patient. After her second chemo treatment, she became ill and had to be hospitalized at WK South, Dr. McDonald sent his on call associates, that did nothing. Myself and my sister called and pleaded with his nurse to have him give us direction and help, we received neither. My mother was in the hospital for
