very good
Patient | August 23, 2016

Dr.MacDonald has been my primary car physician since i moved here 6 years ago. I am confiident I choose the right doctor. He is an amiable fellow with excellent beside manner, which is only superseded by his knowledge of medicine. He listens, offers advice and choices, then follows up our discussions at the next meeting to see if any changes are needed. Any doctor who calls me at 8:30 on a Friday night to make sure I was ok after an accident is a man who cares about his patients. Vanderbilt is lucky to have him on their staff.
Patient | August 17, 2016

I would highly recommend Dr. James MacDonald.
