I saw Jan McDonald when she had an office in Scottsdale, AZ. She is one of the best doctors I've seen in my lifetime.

No longer licensed in NC, NV and AZ

My mother went in to her follow-up appointment today. The doors were locked and staff frantically packing up. They said she retired. NC Medical Board said she voluntarily surrendered her license in 06/2011. Check NV Medical Board where she lost her license because she didn't notify them of problems with her AZ license. AZ Medical Board says she lost her license for professional misconduct. If she ever gets another state to license her, I would suggest "RUN AWAY"!!

TERRIBLE DOCTOR

Wait time is always over an hour, more like 2+, disorganized, no privacy in office as she comes in with a "group", doesn't listen, uncaring. I would never go back to her again!!! Beware

Worst Experience With Any Doctor

I have had various skin problems during my life and have seen many dermatologist before Dr. McDonald, all of whom have been friendly, given prompt service, and helped with my problems. Dr. McDonald was a different story. I had read several bad reviews already but gave her the benefit of the doubt, but even with low expectations should went even lower. I literally sat for 90 minutes in the waiting room, which was mostly empty, before sitting alone in my underwear in the examination room for another 45 minutes before Dr. McDonald arrived. Immediately should made me feel as if my presence was inconvenience to her, asking me hurried questions and glancing over my skin. I had some moles and skin tags I needed to have checked out, but she instead singled out some moles I knew I've had most of my life and said they needed to be removed immediately, and recommended a needlessly expensive treatment for the skin tags. In her words, her jobs was to "save lives" by removing potentially cancerous moles, which other dermatologists have before and since seen and claimed to be no big deal. In addition to being rude, she also only seems interest in pushing the most expensive treatments to payments, and I'm sure she gets plenty of kickbacks from the pharmaceutical companies she pushes. Don't waste your time and money and go to someone else, even if it means driving to VA Beach or Raleigh.

Dr. McDonald is an excellent dermatologist. She had great knowledge for dermatology and cares about her patients. She takes the time out to explain everything in detail to her patients so they know all there options. I have recommended all my friends and family to go see Dr. McDonald she is wonderful.
