Dr. McDonough has always treated my illness and situation with the utmost care and concern. She gives me all the information I need to help me be an active participant in my health decisions. She is empathetic with my concerns but, also, makes sure I\'m educated on what is happening or could possibly happen with my condition. I always leave my appointments knowing I can contact her with any concerns.I truly feel blessed to have Dr. McDonough as my health care provider!!

She was very knowledgeable.Even though it had been years since I last saw her she brought up a problem with a really bad rash I had at my last visit with her.I had to switch doctors for awhile because of my insurance.She wanted to know everything that the other provider had done.She said she was going to request my records from the other provider\'s office as well as three other providers I have for reasons that can relate to why I\'m seeing her.I feel like she really cares and wants what is best for me

Dr McDonough has been on top of my care since being diagnosed with Lupus. She is always coordinating with physicians in other specialties if needed and was instrumental in checking availability and insurance for a new drug available specifically for Lupus. I can\'t say enough about her!
