Dr. McDonald has been our family doctor for over 10 years. I was just talking with a group of friends this week about how exceptional he and his staff have always been. He explains care options and answers questions regarding each of them to all the members of my family, younger and older.

Dr. McDonald very helpful. Very pleased with Dr. McDonald. Sometimes it takes more than 20 minutes and it is well known that 20 minutes is the allotted time. That rule is not very helpful.

Dr McDonald has always taken care of my needs. Watched out for things that are good or not good for me. I trust him totally for my well being. At my age 84, I feel he is one of the best Doctors Baylor Scott and White has on their Staff.

I've been using Dr. McDonald (Dr. Mickie D) for longer than I can remember. If I had a son, I'd pray that he were as good of a person as Dr. McDonald.
