Dr. McDonald is one of the nicest, thoughtful, most competent professionals I've known. Top choice for anyone in bay area. Michael Hood

Dr Mcdonald saved my eye in an emergency surgery. He is courteous,friendly and very professional. In subsequent exams he would carefully read my file out loud before each exam which gave me a great deal of assurance that he was completely present for my exam.

Horrible doctor. Condescending, full of himself, mean-spirited old man.

Dr. McDonald and the staff at this clinic were great. The new Dr.'S in training were great also..their concern and patience was much appreciated. Dr. McDonald is a seasoned MD who has not lost compassion and sincere interest in pt's health. As a medical professional myself (RN)that is not so easy to maintain..it is easy to get "burned out". I feel fortunate that I was referred to him by another great MD . Julie Hadden

I have been going to Dr. McDonald for years now. I started seeing him when his partner stopped seeing patients and went into research. Dr. McDonald is always very gentle and nice. He takes the time to chat with my husband and I. I never ever have felt rushed. He is very knowledgeable. He answers all of my questions. I have always had good experiences with Dr. McDonald. Highly recommended for retinal problems.

Dr McDonald is a rude, arrogant, and unprofessional man. Heis very disrespectful to women. He became incredibly defensive when I asked to forward my records to my primary doctor. He refused to send them and became very rough during the examination. My eyes still feel bruised. He also could not wait to get another patient in. You'll get about 3 minutes for your visit. Go see someone else.
