Straight to the point and Thorough

Dr. Mcdonald was referred to me by one of his patients. He came across as very intelligent and straight to the point, and he was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly. While he did not feel that I currently needed hip arthroscopy, I did not feel that I was left off the hook as he made recommendations on who to see who could better address the entirety of my medical issues, and gave the assurance to return to him if I continued to have hip issues.

Five Stars

Dr McDonald knows what he is doing. I like that he did everything possible to help me with my shoulder pain but only mentioned surgery when there was no other alternative.

I would like to pass on my sincere gratitude to Kate Deford for her unsurpassed compassion and spot on care she has provided throughout my surgery and recovery. Dr. McDonald hit the jackpot when he brought Kate on as his Physician Assistant and I want all to know what she brings to this first class practice. She is a true professional with the knowledge in her chosen field and the people skills to make her patients feel secure in the direction and decisions of the healthcare they are receiving. Keep up the outstanding work as I know you will.

Best of the best

Honestly I find it difficult to find the words to express my gratitude for what truly was a life-altering event. Let me start by saying that Dr. John McDonald is a truly exceptional professional and his attention to detail is unsurpassed in his field. I had researched many orthopedic surgeons throughout Texas and found many fine surgeons; however, there are none better than Dr. John McDonald. From the very first moment of meeting him, I knew that Dr. McDonald was the doctor for me, as well as my husband! After our first consultation with Dr. McDonald personally, all our fears and apprehensions were extinguished; as we knew the decision to proceed with Dr. McDonald was the one and only choice to make. His repair to my hip was virtually painless and has made all the difference in the world to my quality of life. Not only do I believe in the surgical skill of Dr. John McDonald but also his sensitivity, kind charm and gentle demeanor. Dr. McDonald has been blessed with a God given gift of patience and precision. I believe you’ll find that Dr. McDonald cares about a quick recovery and absolute perfection in his procedures. Dr. McDonald uses a gentle touch and skillful technique to keep the patient from undergoing a lengthy and rough procedure. Not only is he an exquisite doctor but a truly exceptional person as well. For whoever reads this, you will have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I would highly recommend Dr. McDonald for any and all knee, hip, & shoulder procedures. Thank you Dr. McDonald for all you've done for me!
