Ratings for Dr. James MacKinnon
My children are now 30 and 28 he was their pediatrician up until the age of 18. What a wonderful Dr. and human being he is. He truly loves children and what he is doing. I've never met a more kind and caring Dr. It was with heavy hearts when they were too old to continue seeing him. Can't say enough wonderful things about him. Thank you for always caring.
I honestly have no words to describe Dr Mackinnon. He is truly the kindest doctor and you can tell he genuinely loves his profession. He's knowledgeable, friendly, and cares deeply about his patients. The receptionist Deb is also one of a kind, she cares just as much as Dr Mackinnon about the patients and even follows up to see how they're doing. Forever grateful for these two!
So many wonderful things to say about Dr. MacKinnon - knowledge, kind, premium bedside manner, conveys care and concern without alarm, personally follows up, punctual, has a fabulous and knowledgeable team, all with a warm and reassuring manner. If you are lucky enough to have him as your pediatrician, you will shave years of worry from the childhood years!
Dr Mckinnon is just a gem of a doctor and man. He takes the time to chat with my kids and answers all their questions. Explains things to them too as they are getting older. He is great at reassuring you when there is nothing serious but as soon as he suspects something he doesn't tarry. His staff - especially Bev- are phenomenal.
He is the best doctor I ever seen not only in Canada but all over the world. We have an amazing experience with my 3 kids Specially my youngest is often sick Dr James is very helpful 24/7 His two wonderful receptionists are angels not human beings. May God bless 3 of them
Dr. Mackinnon and his secretary Bev are by far the best team out there. Dr. Mackinnon has a heart of gold and works very hard at his office and at the hospital. During the Christmas holidays my one year old caught a bad cold. To the point where my daughter developed a cold in her eyes, which looked like pink eye. The walk in clinic automatically diagnosed her with pink eye and an ear infection and prescribed antibiotics. But my daughter didn't complain about her ears at all. I decided not to give the antibiotics and wait a few days to see Dr. Mackinnon and no my daughter didn't need the antibiotics her ears were clear. Doctors like this deserve more recognition and reward. Dr. Mackinnon you are such a great doctor and our Celine just loves coming to your office. Bev no words besides "The Best". Definitely need more doctors out there like him.
Dr. Mackinnon, I wish you accepted adults too as a patient! You are truly one in a million. We have 4 kids and love the care he has given to us since they were born. He is an example as to how doctors should be, caring, nurturing, attentive to patients and providing best medical advice. We are so blessed to have him as a doctor for our children!
We love Dr. Mackinnon. He is so knowledgeable and helpful. Love the way he playfully and gently handles our daughter. And the best part is that our daughter too loves him. He is the only doctor with whom she plays an doesn't scream or throw a tantrum. He will answer all our questions patiently and will go out of hus way to help us in any way medically required. With our daughter being a preemie, he gave us all the information required and references which we hadn't received from other doctors. His staff too are excellent. Cheerful, helpful, they really help in running the place smoothly. We are so lucky to have him as our pediatrician esp. after a few bad experiences with other doctors.
Dr. MacKinnon saved my son's life when he was just 11 months old and for that we will be forever grateful. He has always been a kind, knowledgable and patient doctor with both parents and children. As my children approach 15 and 16, I know we will have to move on but it is with a heavy heart. He is one in a million.
