Very helpful, did not have a specific diagnosis before we left, but did multiple tests and made sure we followed up with pediatric dentist.

She greatly enjoys taking care of children and their families as they grow. She also loves the variety that pediatrics provides and being able to provide sick and well-child care. Dr. MacDonald is committed to her patients, her office and her community and is grateful to work in a community that values and cherishes its young people and families.
