Very Thorough and Kind

Dr. Macedo has addressed all of my symptoms head on. He listens and investigates everything I've raised with him. Very rare to find. He does not give up and is a great communicator. Great physician!

Five Stars

I wouldn't have no better doctor beside my side to save me but him,, and need his HELP again, but insurance fighting against me for his area,, because this time I almost died, now I need him again with more nerve damage they can't control here where I'm at, from these surgeries.

Professional, thorough, Neuologist in a combined, somewhat hectic, practice

I went into the Washington Medical Group for a chiropractic consult, but since the doctors work as a team, I got a lot of other health issues addressed, and got my back pain mostly resolved. Dr. Macedo did a more thorough evaluation of my neurological situation than I have had in 20 years. I was very impressed by the excellent team practice at Washington Medical Group, but the "cash up front" payment and non-acceptance of credit cards, combined with a rather unprofessional staff, detracted from the rating.

Maceado decent

Dr. Maceado is very kind and caring. He wants to help but sometimes I feel he is just taking a stab in the dark. He will gladly listen to what the patient presents but always goes with what he knows will work -- which sometimes does and does not. I've been seen by Dr. Maceado for 7 years, which is good and bad...because why am I still having migraine issues after 7 years? Migraines suck. Dr. Maceado tries his best.

Bad service

my biggest complaint is his office staff. I have been his patient for almost 2 years and after each visit I had to spend my time explaining to his office staff that my insurance requires to send a referral together with a claim to an insurance company. many visits later I still have to deal with the same problem- lost referrals, refusing to send a referral etc. My insurance company has even called his staff and asked to send a referral... Still nothing changed after the next visit... So I have decided that it would be easier to change the doctor than to deal with his staff.
