Dr. McDonald is knowledgeable, efficient, super qualified, knows her stuff and ties great surgical knots! But, she not only cares for me as a patient, she truly cares about my well being as a human being.

Dr Michele McDonald is an exceptional physician. We, Vanderbilt and myself, are fortunate to have her for our patient care. She's talented with her surgical skills, patient to the point of verifying the procedures are thoroughly and correctly completed, answers any questions presented with appropriate responses and sincere concern. My condition is such that I will continuously need her treatment, and I pray that she never tires of her vocation, moves, or reaches a point she stops practicing. She's a blessing for me, and I suspect many other patients as well.

Did a great job.
Patient | September 27, 2016

Dr. McDonald is an incredible MOHS surgeon and has surrounded herself with a very good staff. When I had concerns about how I was healing (scalp surgery), she saw me and examined the surgical area, and her nurses addressed other issues on the phone.
