Ratings for Dr. James H. McDonald
This dr you should stay far away from! He's happy go lucky until you question his actions and then he has the nurses leave the room and then proceeds to go off on you! I left in tears! Later found out through another dr I needed surgery! After this experience I dread dr.'s!!
Dr. McDonald is the best doctor we have ever had. His bedside manner and sincerity is outstanding. He diagnosed my son early with a rare chromosome disorder and my brother in law with early stage cancer which allowed him to catch it early and operate. Comments that he is in it for the money bewilder me, he is sometimes behind because he spends so much time with you, which proves to me it isn't about the money. He is an A+ doctor for our family and has developed into a friend as well.
I have gone to this doctor since 1992. He has been there for me when other doctors couldn't or wouldn't. I have seen him fight insurance companies on patient's behalf when insurance companies wanted to deny tests or treatments, and not just the ones done at his office. I have seen his office running a little behind, by not by much. I don't mind this because it is often because a patient needs more time, tests, or treatment than could be forseen. I know that sometimes the extra time is spent on me when I am in need. I have also seen him as the last patient of the day and during the time it took for the nurse to get the sample meds together, this doctor flew my little boy up and down the hall like an airplane. My son was thrilled! His doctor truly cares for the welfare of his patients and has made career choices and changes when other health care intities were more interested in $$$ than patients.
Dr. McDonald took excellent care of my children after their adoption from Russia. Spent time checking them out and getting vaccinations figured out and up to date. When my youngest developed an illness, he predicted by looking at him that it was pneumonia. X-rays proved it out. He told my son he was a tough little fighter and if he could show some improvement in 24 hours we would be able to avoid the hospital. We were given instructions on how to treat him and what to watch for in the next 24 hours. We did everything as ordered and saved a big hospital bill. My kids think he's the most wonderful doctor in the world and so do I.
