When my knee issues became unbearable, that was in 2014. That's when I saw Dr. Dale Macdonald for the first time. I was very carrying and demonstrated an immense knowledge, Dr. Macdonald. In short, my knee issues were very taxing and affected my everyday life. I am seeing him regularly and each and every time when I leave his office I feel better. I trust him with his recommendations and follow them to the T. The best part is, his availability is very accommodating, no long waiting time to see Dr. Macdonald, his office hours are fantastic. I like to thank Dr. Dale for his ongoing support, also his staff is excellent and helpful. I highly recommend his clinic.

Without exaggeration Dr. MacDonald is the best doctor I've ever encountered. Smart, personable and with a genuine care for his patients. Wish I'd found him earlier. His whole office is friendly too.

I highly recommend Dr Dale. He shows a genuine interest in my condition and needs. With experience and variety of treatments he is always able to improve my outlook, reducing pain and improving mobility at every office visit. I count on his recommendations helping me improve my health and fitness on my own. In addition Dr. Dale has on many occasions gone out of his way to help me access other professional help, treatments, and incidental help on my recovery from corrective surgery. All the people who work with Dr. Dale are top notch. In particular Dr. Susan Janssens who helped me with a particularly difficult ailment requiring her to try many different approaches with extraordinary tenacity. I trust Dr Dale and the Elite Sport Performance/Knee Clinic completely, it is the first place you need get to in order to see your full potential if you are being held back by a knee related condition.

Wow - what an awesome group of folks! Dr. Dale is so knowledgeable, caring and passionate about what he does. We were able to get in quickly to see him and on a path to improvement for our daughter. His bedside manner is awesome and instills confidence in both of us as parents to a daughter whose knee issues have really impacted the quality of life. We would highly recommend this practice. We were in within a week of reaching out to them. Highly professional - everything a client could ever want in a practitioner! Kudos Dr. Dale.

I've seen Dr Macdonald for a few years and have recommended him to anyone who will listen! I've since moved but when I return to Calgary in a few years I'll definitely be going back.
