Our first visit with Dr Matt McDonald was exceptional. We felt like he treated us as a family member would. He was so caring & kind. He was very professional, explained everything in detail and answered all our questions. We feel very confident with him as our Doctor and would highly recommend him.

Dr. McDonald was absolutely great. I was VERY nervous initially and he quelled my fears immediately. His calm and caring disposition was definitely a plus.

Excellent experience. Staff extremely courteous. Dr. very personable and caring. Explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. Felt like we made decisions together rather than me just being told a plan

This was my first visit to the new Cancer Center and I was so impressed. Thank you Novant for this wonderful building with all the modern conveniences and equipment. Dr.Matt McDonald is a wonderful doctor. I think Novant should have a Who's Who for doctors or start a Dream Team and Dr. McDonald and Dr. Kuo would be the leaders of the Pack.

Dr.McDonald was the BEST. He listened to me. Talked to me not at me and made me feel safe and secure about my health treatment.

Dr. McDonald is excited to be practicing in his home town of Charlotte, NC. He and his wife, Cherie, who grew up in Belmont, NC, moved back to Charlotte in 2008 with their three daughters to join Novant Health's gynecologic oncology team. He feels that the relationships built caring for the gynecologic oncology patient inspires the entire health care team be better doctors and nurses and, more importantly, better human beings. Dr. McDonald has a special focus on the surgical and medical management of gynecologic malignancies. In his free time he enjoys fly fishing and golf.
