I did not select VM & Dr. Macdonald. Our insurance carrier directed me to the COE Joint Program at VM. This time managed care worked - Dr. Macdonald is a professional pro and the VM team was excellent. Beyond all expectations!

I always feel like he´s in a hurry, so he´s very quick in our appts. I spend more time waiting for him than the actual appt. And he´s very short on his answers to our questions.
