The staff is always very nice and friendly, but turnover is very frequent. I have been examined by dr. McDonnell every six months for the past decade. I like everything about her. I wish all doctors could be like her.

Over about seven years I have had an equal number of skin cancers removed by Dr. McDonnell. They were caused by previously working for many years at or above timberline without sun block. She has easily and accurately identified them all and removed them so deftly that they heal quickly without a trace and no recurrence. She is cheerful, easy to talk to, and incredibly professional.

Dr. McDonnell has been taking care of me for many years. I have complete confidence in her. If nothing is wrong we do nothing. If I'm concerned about something she examines it and gives me an easy to understand diagnosis. So far there have been no problems...knock on wood.
