Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great doctor but Quits without notice
He was my pain management doctor several years ago and he quit without notice. Now he’s my primary care doctor and I just got a call that he quit without notice.

Dr Mackie was very easy to talk to and addressed all my concerns in a conservative and considered manner. I have some complicated health issues and they were all addressed and tests run as needed.

went to this dr for 8 yrs for pain management then went in to pick up new scripts to find out he just packed up the whole pain center and walked off the job leaving all of his patients hanging if you ever had to get into a pain program you know its not an easy task its been 2 months now and I still have yet to find another one and nobody wants to fill opioids now because of all the hassle I have fought with a lot of different people trying to either get scripts or an appointment I had one bad pill count in 8 yrs due to theft and they put that in my record and now other pain managements are denying me if that was such a tragedy why did I stay there that long wow.

Dr. MacKie started treating me for debilitating migraines in 1997. I was having them 3-4 times a week that would put me in a pain drug induced stupor. My migraines are triggered by changes in the atmosphere, so I can't control it. I was trying to raise two young children. Dr. MacKie treated me with acupuncture. I now go in for maintenance acupuncture to keep my migraines at bay every 5-6 weeks. I have not had a migraine for over 15 years now. This doctor changed my life.
