Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Don't feel the doctor is up-to-date with my history. Needs to read chart before coming in to see me.

The only reason I wouldn't recommend Dr. McDonald is because I don't want all his appointments taken up with my friends.

We followed this provider to Swedish from his previous practice. He is an exceptionally good diagnostician and communicator (both listening & talking!).

on this day my husband came along with a few questions of his own. (we had called the office ahead of time to ask if that was ok and did they have time to see us both) when Dr arrived he listened to my husbands heart and took him directly to the ER and my office visit never happen. My husband was admitted into the hospital with a rapid irregular heart beat. I feel that the dr may have saved my husbands life.

He seems rushed, like he has a heavy patient load or something.

Dr. McDonald is amazing. I don't want to refer people to him because he is already difficult to get in to see. I trust him 100%.

Dr. McDonald is great. The rest of the providers, especially at urgent care, are awful. (In quality of diagnosis, treatments, etc....)

I appreciate Dr McDonald's thorough exams. He looks at the details to determine the best course of action.

I appreciate that Dr. MacDonald treats his patients as intelligent people and also as people. I don't feel like I'm "just another number" to him, but rather that he recognizes me and that we have more of a "relationship" than I have had with other doctors recently. I feel like he has a better understanding of what I need, because he understands me a little better as a person.

Dr. McDonald has been my primary care doctor for over 22 years. He is a remarkable physician, and I consider him a good friend. His diagnosis of a condition some years ago saved my life. He also saved my wife's life.

Dr McDonald is a wonderful doctor , not only very knowledgeable and willing to listen to you he's also interested in making sure you are comfortable and participating in your treatment. He's so good I decided to bring my gynecological care to him.

Dr. McDonald is the best primary care doctor I have ever had. I am a patient at Swedish because he is at Swedish.

I'm concerned this provider doesn't look into my record prior to coming into the room to see me! If I don't mention past items such as lab results, they don't get discussed fully. This provider can't possibly see too many people a day, where he cannot sit down prior to the beginning of the day and go over test results and record history prior to entering an exam room. At times of late, it leaves me scratching me head in wonderment.
