Dr McDougal was excellent. i was referred because of frequent falls. he explained everything, made sure i understood everything .

July 6, 2020 9:48 PM

excellent experience

June 4, 2020 9:14 AM

We love Dr. MacDougall he always cares and takes his time going over things he really listens.

June 4, 2020 9:14 AM

He has changed my life for the better.

June 2, 2020 12:07 PM

Visits are specifically for a Botox injection; visits are efficient; Dr. McDougal is pleasant and professional; answers my questions and does not rush the visit

June 2, 2020 12:07 PM

I have had numerous encounters with Advocate sites. The front desk staff at this office is cold, does not seem to care. Needs substantial training on providing a pleasant visit. This is inconsistent with my other AMG/Advocate experiences.

May 20, 2020 12:54 PM

This was a first-time visit and was done over Zoom. It was a very good encounter despite the circumstances and I was offered the opportunity to schedule a face-to-face appointment after COVID.

May 20, 2020 12:54 PM

The doctor was thorough and explanations clear. I did not feel rushed. He did seem to listen to my concerns and questions but was firm with his own opinion.

May 15, 2020 12:00 AM

COVID-19 - prevented an actual office visit. I have had 2 phone visits/Dr. Macdougall & Dr. X. Both, I feel, are excellent providers.

April 27, 2020 1:37 PM

this was my first meeting with the doctor and I was impressed with how much he listened and how well he explained his thoughts on a treatment approach. a very good doctor in my very uneducated opinion

March 23, 2020 6:35 PM

Friendly and informative.

March 19, 2020 7:01 AM

It was resourceful. Looking forward to follow up. Hoping for positive results for quality of life.

March 19, 2020 7:01 AM

The dr. seemed very concerned and willing to address my medical concern - even being honest within reason as what could be side effects which helps with my decisions.

March 9, 2020 2:56 PM

First visit and was pleased.

March 9, 2020 1:26 PM

Great care and concern with frank and clear answers to my questions

November 15, 2019 12:37 PM

The provider was very nice to me and my husband. He sit and listen to us while we talk and answer all our question.

November 12, 2019 11:00 PM

I had a terrible and unforgettable experience. I never been to that location and it was my first time seeing the doctor. I didn't need him to diagnosis me because that has already been done! My biggest concern and the reason I wanted to see him was because all of the medication that previous doctors had me on along with a host of side effects that I was suffering from. It was taking a toll on my health and my life and since he was a specialist in neurology, I wanted and needed his help really desperately. My hope was that he would help me by evaluating the medications that I was taking as well as introducing me to other options that would help me have some quality of life! I practically begged him and I hope so much in Dr. MacDougall and he snatched all that hope away.There is so much more that I can say about this visit but I will never understand how a person who took an oath to help all people would treat another person as such!

November 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Mac is an excellent doctor. He listens and has a great attitude. Friendly and tries to get to know the patient.

November 3, 2019 6:00 PM

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr MacDougal is an outstanding physician. He came highly recommended by another of my providers and I have always been pleased with the care I receive from his staff and him. He listens well, doesn't seem rushed, has a very pleasant demeanor and I feel very comfortable that he is an expert in his field.

July 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Great doctor. Listens and really cares about my health. Great relationship.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

The condition I saw Dr MacDougall for is pretty unnerving and he was clear about guidelines on what I should be watching out for. This was helpful to me in reducing my level of concern.

June 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Tried to call the office about the medication could not get through for 3 days - put on hold for 30 minutes then disconnected.
