Kevin Mac Donald is a wonderful doctor. Highly recommend.
This was the most informed & best ortho doctor I have ever seen.
He was dismissive and condescending. Showed no empathy or compassion, felt like we were a bother and felt rushed out the door. His patient approach has changed through years!
You know, I think Virginia Mason, and the orthopedics department, are just fine! I don´t have complaints.
The staff and Dr. MacDonald were great. The only thing I wished Dr. MacDonald would have mentioned was surgery could not be done within three months of a steroid injection.
Dr. McDonald and Dr. Lin were over the top with all these items.
Very professional, caring, explained everything so I could understand, and took all worries I had and explained them. Doctor Kevin Macdonald is a keeper.
I have recommended Dr. MacDonald to others.
I cannot put into words the gratitude for the care, compassion and courtesy that everyone showed us while we were there. My heart felt thanks goes to everyone that had contact with my wife and I.
Doctor is a very busy man.
I have been seeing him 4 yrs. after my surgery - he always takes time for a little personal talk. I am 100 miles away. #8. Adequate for my type of follow-up.
Kevin is a good dr. - person.
Spent sufficient time with me & did not feel rushed.
Dr. MacDonald & the entire staff in the Ortho Clinic are very good very nice & helpful.
Dr. MacDonald was awesome!! He was very kind, friendly, educated me on my problem. Very patient. I am working on getting my mom referred to him. I was given peace of mind because he was so informative.
I´m confident in Dr. MacDonald.
Everyone took very good care of me.
Dr. MacDonald seemed knowledgeable & sincere. Although he didn´t seem to know about my prior hip implants/replacements, he did an excellent job w/my knee.
I enjoyed meeting Dr. McDonald and really appreciated getting in to see him so promptly. He was courteous, efficient, informative and caring.
#1-10. Dr. M. was great!
Exceptionally respectful to a senior citizen with hearing difficulties!!
I am fully confident in my care provider. He knows his staff.
He was great. My husband had lots of questions about people providing other types of procedures and the doctor was very patient explaining about each and saying his method was the best. He exuded confidence and patience.
Dr. MacDonald understood and listened to my wife and my concerns about previous medical conditions he was very caring.
Went our of his way to schedule my surgery ASAP.
Always appears interested - rarely hurried.
Dr. MacDonald has been an excellent physician for my knee replacement
