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.

Best doctor relationship I have ever had . . . going to medical appointments is just about my least favorite action . . . root canal is preferable! Dr. McDonald makes is as OK as possible given my medical paranoia!!

I only see Dr. McDonald for HRT. If I knew of another doctor in the area that provided this service, I would not see him any more because it is difficult to make an appointment, they don't answer their phones, and they don't follow up in returning phone calls unless you make a pest of yourself by leaving repeated messages. Additionally, I have to call and remind him to make an lab appointment for periodic blood work and he usually forgets to do this. The first time, when I assumed he had taken care of this, I went in on a Saturday, waited almost 2 hours, and then found out when it was my turn that Dr. McDonald had not placed the lab order for blood work! Ever since then, I always call the lab ahead of time, and more often than not, those lab orders have not been placed and I have to call his office and request it be done.

Instructions for follow up lab work were not sent or ordered and it was difficult for lab to follow up as doctor was on vacation. Lab worked it out but it was a bit of a delay. This not ordering lab work has happened before & makes it difficult to visit lab on weekend.

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....)
