Patient Comments (7)
She is a great surgeon and was able to fix my nerve pain issue. However her bedside manner is seriously lacking. It Took me 7 months to get in to her office for my initial visit. She was very thorough in explaining the issue before surgery, however after surgery she was very cold and didn't answer my questions. She did come into the room for a few minutes but seems disinterested in anything I had to say. Great surgeon did fix my issue but has a horrible beside manner.

Dr Mackinnon is a judgemental woman who got my hopes up when she reassured me on my first visit that she could help me treat my chronic pain condition. On my second visit she noticed that I am tattooed and told me point blank that she would not work on me because of this, but not before she had me go through a myriad of tests that she refused to look at.

Arrogant and not nice! I mean this lady had an ego like crazy. I was warned by several doctors that she was super arrogant and mean to everyone but she is beyond that. She is absolutely ice cold and just wanted to do surgery do surgery do surgery! She doesn't talk to you, she talks at you and it's obvious she could care less about your wellbeing.

Dr. MacKinnon is absolutely the best. I have had 4 separate hand surgeries and one wrist surgery. She always treats me with great respect, patience, professionalism. She explains what she will do, her prognosis for recovery and good follow up at her office. I would recommend her to anyone and certainly to my friends. Her reputation at Washington University and at Barnes is superior.

This is a long over due Thank You to Dr. MacKinnon, I suffered for years with a inner thigh nerve pain, after years of trying to find someone to explore and diagnose the problem I found Dr. MacKinnon. She was a God sent. She is very matter of fact and did a great job asking me details of the pain. I also found her YouTube videos extremely helpful in understanding my surgery and getting a feeling of well being with her as a surgeon. I would HIGHLY recommend Her.

Dr. MacKinnon saved my daughter's future - a well regarded orthopedic doctor cut her nerve during routine meniscus surgery. It took 2 years of pain and frustration before finding Dr. MacKinnon, who in the first 10 minutes of our first visit, diagnosed the issue. Surgery was scheduled within a week and my daughter had immediate relief! She was able to pursue her active career, which would never have been possible without pain relief in her leg.

My experience has been excellent. Initial consultation was thorough with a detailed explanation of the planned surgery. Took time to answer all my questions and make me comfortable. First follow-up was also excellent with detailed instructions for me to follow. I never felt rushed or pressured nor did she or her staff ever talked down or condensing. Overall would highly recommend her.
