I have been to many medical professionals, but Dr. McDonough is the first to totally understand my symptoms and issues and how they are all connected, which made me extremely emotional. His experience and knowledge in the field of Neuropsychology is top-notch. I highly recommend Dr. McDonough and his staff.

Dr. McDonough and his team were excellent. His thoroughness, caring, and compassion went a long way to creating a comfortable environment to undergo such a highly personal assessment. He took his time to explain in great detail the results and it was clear that his expertise and subject matter knowledge have earned him the incredible reputation he has within the neuropsych community. Thank you for your help.

Dr. McDonough is a conscientious professional both compassionate and to the point. I am fighting the ravages of Parkinson disease and the testing he and his staff administer is comprehensive and exhaustive in helping me understand the impact on my cognitive and motor function. I highly recommend Dr. McDonough for an unbiased and accurate assessment of your neurological disorder.

Drs. McDonough and Lipori were both congenial and apparently quite knowledgeable. As to trust in their decisions, I have no basis to judge. (My remarks do not apply to psychology services, only to testing services. )

He listens well. He explains well. He does not judge except within the bounds of the evaluation and profession. He kindles hope, and "promises" progress toward healthful goals.

We appreciated the way Dr. McDonough put our family at ease and explained the evaluation process so thoroughly. Our child, although apprehensive, cooperated as best as possible. The office staff was very professional and put us at ease. The feedback we received after the process was invaluable. We look forward to our return visit next year.

Everything went smooth, the environment and atmosphere is great. Everyone is nice and courteous and they explain everything out. If you have questions Dr. McDonough will break it down so you understand. There is no judgement, and they have been nothing but accommodating from the start. Ultimately, everyone there made me feel welcomed and comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Mark McDonough.

I have seen a couple of other psychologists in the past 6 months and have not found the experience pleasant or helpful. The appointments with Dr. McDonough were both of these things. I found him helpful and thought he really cared about my issues.
