What Our Patients Say

Michaela McDonnell, MD
5 Stars  I have been a patient with Dr. McDonnell for the past 14 years. Dr. McDonnell is not only the finest dermatologist I have found, but also the finest physician I have known. I have visited my fair share of doctors in my 70 years and have never found any physician who can equal her knowledge, skill, thoroughness, and compassion. My father passed away from melanoma in 1988. I have a personal history of six basal or squamous cell skin cancers. Dr. McDonnell's surgical skills are outstanding. She thoroughly checks margins to ensure all cancer has been removed. Her sutures never loosen, feel tight, or pull. Of equal importance to me, is that I know she cares...she really cares about the welfare of each of her patients. Peace of mind is difficult to quantify. I know when I have it and I know when I don't. I did not find peace of mind until I met Dr. McDonnell in 2005. I am profoundly blessed by her presence in my life, and by extension, the lives of my wife and children. –
