No compassion and told me my ears were fine. I saw my primary 2 days later and she was shocked by what he said and sent me to another ENT where it was proven to be a problem with my ears. I contacted the office and they refused to do anything about the bill I received even though I had to have everything done by another ENT.

I had a great experience with Dr MacDonald. He explained things well, offered options on how to proceed, and was very easy to communicate with. In the end, I ended up having sinus surgery. The entire process was very smooth and recovery was straightforward.

After seeing another doctor in the same practice i chose to see Dr. MacDonald III since he had better reveiws than the other one. At First he seemed thorough and very knowledgeable but lacked compassion and bedside manner. All I wanted was a follow up phone call to ask a question about the results of my ultrasound and he couldn't even provide that. Not a very personable or compassionate doctor. I found someone else who took my concerns seriously. NEVER AGAIN WILL I GO TO MIDWEST ENT.

I was very disappointed with this office and Dr. When I showed up they didn't have me actually on the schedule even though I scheduled days prior. I did get in to see the Dr the same day however and the office staff was friendly. He however dismissed my concerns and ran a blood test. He was in and out in five minutes and assumed that I had kids and that is why my thyroid is doing weird things. Not worth the time or money.

I think Dr. MacDonald is great. I have seen him several times and he is always friendly and answers any questions I may have. My husband has had a positive experience with him as well.

My family and I have been patients of Dr MacDonald's for several years. Whether the problem was small or large, my experience has always been positive. He explains things in ways I understand and answers my questions well every time. I am on allergy shots through his office and had a balloon sinus procedure. Both of theses treatments have really helped my sinus problems!

Dr. MacDonald took a great deal of time to help me understand my hearing loss and severe tinnitus. He even gave me tips to help my elderly father with profound hearing loss who lives in another state! I loved his kindness, gentleness and willingness to take time to educate me.

Overall great experience. We discussed my concerns, set up a treatment plan, and followed through with it. I ended up needing surgery, and the experience was very positive. I would feel very comfortable sending friends and family to see Dr MacDonald
