My doctor was on time and answered all my questions. My wife and I like him a lot and have recommended to friends and family.

I have Lyme disease and was initially grateful for help given to me by Doctor MacDonald. the diagnosis especially. After a recommended cycle of antibiotics, there are no further available treatments for positive Western Blot. However should my neuro or brain scans show positive there is treatment. My other tests came back negative and because of this I could no longer receive treatment according to guidelines. My symptoms never stopped and I sought other treatment and will no longer be seeing Doctor MacDonald.

this was a bad experience. did not do a complete physical. only seemed to care about one issue. all others were ignored. was in and out of exam in 15 min or less. would never see this Dr again and will tell everyone how bad of experience it was.

when i saw dr.macdonald yesterday he listened to me when i told him what worked for this same problem in 2015 and said let's try that again and see if it helps before going on to pain pills. i appreciated that very much. i don't think pain pills are good because if they just cover the pain i could hurt wrist and not know it. he listens and cares i think.

Dr MacDonald is very easy to talk to, and I like the way he doesn't beat around the bush

This is only my second time seeing Dr. MacDonald but I feel that he is a really good doctor. He takes time to listen to my concerns. He even noticed wax build up in my ears and offered to remove it. He is knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. All the qualities in a good doctor.
