This was a sick child walk in visit. I understand that they are seen on a first come first serve basis, but its very difficult to have to wait in the car without any updates on when we will see the doctor. I had to call in the office to make sure we were still on the list to be seen.

Dr. MacDonald goes above and beyond for her patients. She truly cares about her patients and their families. Everyone should be fortunate enough to have a Dr. MacDonald in their corner.
