Patient Comments (3)
in Glastonbury, CT |
Dr. McDonald is a "top doc" in CT and has been for years. She comes highly recommended by her peers. I have been her patient for 14 years and could not be happier. She did my cataract surgery in 2003, and the results are still flawless. She is always patient while answering my questions. She's the best ophthalmologist I have ever had.

While Dr. McDonald is nice and seems proficient, we have found her staff to be rude and not very skilled. Our wait time for cataract surgery was unacceptable. Very poor scheduling on her part.
in Southington, CT |
My husband and I recently had cataract surgery. Dr. McDonald and the staff were outstanding in making us comfortable in understanding what is to come. We could not be more please with their assistance. We highly recommend any one who is seeking a good, knowledgeable Doctor and staff to contact Dr. McDonald. We cannot express enough our satisfaction. They really make you feel like you are important and really care about you and your eye care.
