Patient Reviews
Jun 20, 2019
I’ve been taking my children to Dr. Elana McDonald for quite a few years now, because my oldest child is now 23 years old & we absolutely love Dr. McDonald. I couldn’t see myself taking my children anywhere else. But the 1 down fall with her office is that I can’t never get through the first time I call there. I gotta keep trying & trying & trying again & when I leave a voice message half the time nobody returns my call, so I go in person up to the counter to make an appointment for my child’s annual check-up.
