Dr. McDonald fully explained the situation to me and was very patient. He answered all my questions and didn't rush me. He was a very kind man with a good sense of humor and was a very good listener. I would fully recommend him to anyone I know who was looking for an ENT Doctor. The Monona Clinic, where I saw him always has stellar Doctors.

Would never go back to see Dr McDonald or recommend him to anyone. He may believe he is gods gift ti medicine but his bedside manor stinks. He and his staff don't get back to you with important lab information and its his way or the highway. No matter the circumstances behind the causes
