Ratings for Dr. Norman A. McDonald
My parents see this doctor and every time they leave his office they get a prescription for antibiotics, when I know they have a common cold. He actually prescribed antibiotics over the phone once for my Dad after speaking to my Mom. I think he should get updated on all the new research out there on antibiotic resistance. It's very scary for me to see my parents get this kind of care, when they think its good . it isn't. I think he needs to retire.
I agree with the majority of the comments in that Norman is not very punctual but worth waiting for. I would rather wait for him than be on time with another doctor that I don't have confidence in. He has been my doctor for 15 years and always makes my annual visits as pleasurable as they can be :-)
Has been our family doctor since 1970. He is not punctual but that is because he is thorough and does not rush you out the door. He gives you the time to bring up your concerns and then addresses them. Very good doctor unfortunately I fear he will retire soon.
Because of this Doctor, my mother is dead actually, she died in 1979. I was 16 months old at the time. I was not able to meet my mother or know her because of his Neglegence.Check it out, 1979 in all the newspaper. Anyway just thought I would share. As for staff reviews and such, I truly have no idea.
maybe your appointment is not at the scheduled time, BUT he is sooo great and thorough that I know that he is giving the people ahead of me the best care and he will also treat me with the same courtesy and expertise. NEVER rushes you out of the office. Dr. Norman McDonald is there to help in whatever way he can. He is AWSOME!
He has been my doctor for 28 years and has been helpful and has taken the time to understand my explanations of the problem without ever jumoing to a wrong conclusion. He has performed minor surgery for me with excellent results but when he thinks I need a specialist, he recommends one rather than trying something he would not perform as well. He is sometimes late seeing patients because he is so popular and as a result has a lot of patients. In spite of that he has on occasioin agreed to see me at his office after it should have closed when I felt it was urgent.
