Dr. McDonald is very thorough and concerned about her patients' health. She and her staff are professionals and make you feel that you are heard and valued. I am grateful to have her caring for me.

Dr. McDonald is a very professional and thorough physician. She is also kind and encouraging with a pleasant personality. Her staff are also professional and courteous. I highly recommend Dr. McDonald if you are seeking a family physician.

requested a referral to podiatrist afternoon having to go to ER due to extreme swelling and bruising. They are refusing to provide the referral by requiring me to come in. Pretty sure that I'm 41 years old and the black and purple swollen foot requires the attention of a foot specialist.

Stay away from this doctor!! She overcharges patients due to she is not overly busy. I was charged over $200 for a 10 minute visit. Her nurses took my blood pressure 3 times and got it wrong every time. I had an EKG and she never told me the results, told me she was going to put me on the DASH diet but yet never told me what it was and then put me on a prescription that did not lower my blood pressure. Horrible experience and thank God I went to another doc for a second opinion.

She was very gentle and thorough and listened to all of my concerns.

After having a 2nd screening for breast cancer, I was told that my results (which should have been given that day) would not be available for 2 weeks because Dr. McDonald was out of town. I asked why the doctor on call could not provide my results, only to be told repeatedly that Dr. McDonald said specifically that results would only be available upon her return. I was told that, "I'm sure if there is something wrong someone would have told you." Wow. Unprofessional. Unacceptable.

The Dr. was not personable. Extremely clinical and did not do a thorough physical. To be my age and in and out the door in under 30 minutes was a first. No personal questions were asked, conversation was minimal, and instructions given by the staff pre-physical conflicted with what the Dr. said the day of the physical, mandating a second visit instead of just one. All in all, not a Dr. you want to be a PCP. Better suited to be a walk-in-clinic where no Dr. - patient relationship is expected.

Refuses to give referrals because she says she is capable of treating herself, but cant provide past medications shes prescribed. Waiting room time? Less than 10 minutes because she doesn't care to listen to what you have to say. Next An incompetent fool.
