    I would recommend this provider to anyone who needs information on their kidneys

    It was a pleasant experience.

    I liked Dr. Mcdonald. It was my first visit. He sent me for a blood draw & a on my kidneys to see how they are really functioning & if I have something to worry about. I liked his advice on some of the meds. I am taking.

    Experienced on Mar 17, 2019

    [...] He didn't check my heart beat for more the 30 seconds [...] & nothing else was checked.

    Front desk was detail oriented, attentive, on top of things. Physician I saw seemed less than confident about the answers he gave for my questions - the very reason I went. Really no empathy or personal interest/connection. He was efficient and "adequate" but left me thinking I'd rather go somewhere else.
