I've had several appointments with Dr MacDonald and she was always extremely caring and competent and communicated in a professional fashion. As the only doctor on staff at the emergency, it wasn't her fault that I had to wait two hours, which isn't actually that bad considering. Her faith is important to her and to have the courage to stand up against the culture of death is extremely important to us who do not believe it ethical to have anything to do with abortion or contraception. She should be congratulated for sticking to her guns in the face of extreme intolerance. She's Catholic, so get over it and let her live her life.

I'm sure she is a very nice person. She doesn't say much and seems like she doesn't listen as intently as my previous doctor. I'm a married woman and new to the town. I went to renew my birth control and have a check up. She refused to renew my pills and told me if I wanted to continue, I would have to see another doctor. I went to AFTER HOURS and got it filled and got a better doctor. The rumour is she is very religious. But I didn't know personal beliefs could enter into practicing. If you reflect these beliefs then she would be the dr. for you. I got a cool one that doesn't judge me.

This person called "Dr. Karen MacDonald" does not seem to know how to acknowledge someone who may ask a few more questions than what the patient may ask because maybe that patient is not able to think about everything they want to ask at that given moment! So if you see her and you are not the person in need forget about getting an answer, she won't even look at you, not very impresssed! Did not show very much compassion with a person in distress, give some meds and send a person home! They say your only a number these days, yes sir that's all we are!

I find Dr. MacDonald to have the bed side manner of a slug; she was not chatty, encouraging, or even pleasant to be around.
