The nicest doctor I have been to.
The nicest doctor I have been to. He was very personable and took his time. He genuinely cared. He was very thorough and made sure he answered all my questions.
I would definitely recommend Dr. MacDonald!
I would definitely recommend Dr. MacDonald! He may be one of the most polite and empathetic physicians I've ever visited. He genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients and will spend as much time as necessary to discuss everything the patient requires or is curious about. Most dermatologists spend just a couple minutes with you and rush off. He is very intelligent; he was the 4th doctor I visited regarding a bizarre reaction I had that no one else could diagnose. My condition progressed for 2 weeks under their care. Dr. MacDonald properly diagnosed my condition within minutes of speaking with me and within hours of treatment my symptoms finally started to reverse.
Absolutely incredible experience here!
Absolutely incredible experience here!! Dr. MacDonald was very professional and knowledgeable. As well as sincere and personable. He is one of the nicest doctors I’ve been to! He made me feel comfortable at my appointment, and was respectful of my concerns/questions. He didn’t rush the appointment at all, took the time to answer any questions and inform me the knowledge behind any answer. Very thorough and kind. You can tell he is passionate about what he does and helping others. I would highly recommend him to everyone without a doubt!
