Ratings for Dr. Gary R. McDonald
The only reason I didn't put a score of 5 for the staff is because some of them can occassionally be a bit on the rude side. Besides that Dr. McDonald gets 5's across the board! I love him, he's really a great Dr and person. He's also very knowledgeable
I really appreciate Dr McDonalds knowledge and personality. He is more than willing to take his time and listen. He is perfect in my opinion. My only complaint is his gatekeeper that answers the phone. She will not take the time to listen and never calls back when she says she will.
Gary has been my doctor for about 15 years now and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Several years ago I was bitten by a spider. The local ER sent me home with benadryl!! I armed myself with info from the web and went to see Gary. He immediately put me in the hospital and reeled off 10 of the 11 procedures recommended from WebMD. I showed him my information and he said he knew of the 11th, but I didn't need it. Then he noted the authors and mentioned he went to school with them and ate dinner at their house the week before. I thought he was good before that, but then I thought he was a miracle worker. I'd change insurance before I'd change doctors.
I have been seeing Dr. McDonald for the last 15 years and he is one of the best if not the best MD in this town for internal medicine. He takes time to listen to your concerns and formulates a plan for your care that is individualized to your needs and your concerns. Trying to get through on the telephone to his office is a little daunting but I would not trade him for anyone else in this town.
I live in Boston after living in Nashville my entire life. Going to doctors here really make me appreciate Dr. Mcdonald even more than I did while living there. He takes personal care in me, and I am sure in everyone else. He is the ONLY doctor I trust fully.
Dr. Mcdonald is a fantastic doctor..He always listens and figures out what the problems are...He and his staff are the best I've ever seen...I've lived in three other states and have never had the care and professionalism that Dr. Mcdonald has given to my husband and I..I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.
