An extraordinary physician

Dr. MacRae is an exceptional physician - his natural ability to be fully present with his patients, to listen to concerns, questions (& even unrelated life experience stories) with interest, compassion & humor is extraordinary. Plus, he is extremely knowledgeable, and ready to refer patients to other physicians who may have more experience &/or expertise in particular areas. He is forthcoming, generous with his time and attention. A rare find in this day & age.

Simpy the best

Dr. Macrae has been my cardiologist for years. I love him to death! He is kind, extremely intelligent, understanding, upbeat, empathetic...I could go on and on. I trust him implicitly and would never go to another cardiologist (unless it was a specialist that he referred me to!) He does what he says he will do and follows up regardless of how busy he is (and he is VERY busy) since he works at one of the best hospitals in the world (Brigham and Womens), so he is the cream of the crop. He will answer all of my questions patiently and thoroughly and never makes me feel rushed at all. He is absolutely the best doctor I've ever seen in my life and I have no problem putting my life in his capable hands.
