Unfortunately because this doctor is not competent or knowledgeable in GI, our child suffered. I can't be sure whether it is laziness or insecirity that causes him not to try to find answers but he ends up doing harm to patients and I hope others don't have to suffer through what we, and others have. He mis-diagnosed several times which would be okay if he were actually thinking it through but it was just to dismiss things and move on, to have billable hours but never to actually try to help. He actually said of my child to a resident, "This is how we follow a kid" I realized at that point that was simply collecting visits and payment, he never tried new things, never asked us anything, never helped at all. Exams were not thouough, discussions were not engaging or productive, procedures were done carelessly, which is dangerous. Once we switched docs, regretably after too much time had passed with our child suffering more than a year, the new doc, diagnosed our child immediately and had a plan that had our child feeling better and functioning inside of a month. Please listen to your instincts regarding your child's care and seek out doctors who are interested and engaged and want to help. Dr. McDonald seems only interested in billing you for his time and skating by without his incompetence being discovered. Meanwhile, children suffer if their parents don't know to seek more competent care.
