A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have been a patient of Dr. MacDonnell's practice for over 15 years and have had nothing but positive experiences. Staff are friendly, supportive and professional. Dr. MacDonnell is an intelligent and highly competent physician. I respect her directness and would trust my health to no one else. Can't speak highly enough of her PA, Jackie MacMurray, either. Absolutely adore her!!!!!! Simply top notch all around!!!!!!
I made an appointment with this doctor for my mother, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. We had to wait over a month for an appointment time. As our appointment time approached, we called the office twice to confirm the information and records we needed to bring to the visit and also to see if any records needed to be in the office ahead of time. The office staff informed us that all that was needed was the form (download from the website) and that it was ok for us to bring copies of her records to the appointment. We made special arrangements for this appointment, including travel and taking time off from work (we live 2 hours away). The day before the appointment, the office left a message for us to call them. They gave no other information in the message. We called, but the office was closed by the time we got the message and were able to call back. The next morning, the office called to cancel my mother's appointment. They told us she was a 'special case' and that the doctor needed her records ahead of time, to review. Because of this, we decided not to reschedule. This office had plenty of time to let us know they needed records ahead of time - nearly 2 months!!!! And they waited until the day before the appointment to let us know. The office manager did not offer any apology or admit any error on their part.
Dr. MacDonnell is not a very friendly person, her PA, Jackie McMurray, is absolutely amazing. I was a patient for 8 years and had one unpaid bill and she kicked me out of her practice for $65. When I tried to explain to her, she would not listen or reconsider. She is a very snooty person and unwilling to help or admit she was wrong. I was also interested in bariatric surgery and she was unwilling to support that decision. My BMI was over 41 so I was definitely a candidate for the surgery but because she is against the surgery she would not give me a referral. She is one of the most inefficient and unprofessional doctors I have ever met. I DO NOT recommend this doctor.
