Crystal Lake, IL |
My wife has had ongoing issues after her pregnancy and during this time Dr. McDonough was nearly impossible to reach via phone and only spoke to us in person during scheduled visits. We were given the run around by the nurses on staff when we called about changes to symptoms and other serious health problems. At one point the nurse on the phone said my wife may have a blood clot and should go to the ER. The nurse paged him and we called back several times but never heard anything back from him.

Kind, considerate, thoughtful, intelligent, concerned, compassionate, empathetic, engaging listener, and knowledgeable. It is rare, but when things are outside of his expertise, he will let you know and tries to direct you to someone who can help. I would rather that than become someone's experiment. I appreciate the care and thoughtfulness he gives at each appointment.
