I have been seeing Dr. McDonald since 1998 when both my younger sister and brother passed away from heart attacks. He has instructed me on preventative heart care, blood pressure issues and general heart health. He is a very caring and intelligent physician.

i worked as a medical transcriptionist for Dr McDonald for several moths in autumn 1993. He seemed to be a good doctor, and he had a great sense of humor. So, about 15 years later, when I developed cardiomegaly and CHF, I looked to Dr. Mac for treatment. For the past decade, he has been with me through a lot of ups and downs. He respects my wishes and prescribes treatments that I tolerate well. Oh, and he still makes me laugh.
