My child was nervous wreck and screamed and cried and threw a fit. The doctor was patient with her. Dang to her. She was a blessing! This practice was not our first choice. We switched to Novant due to an insurance change and I couldn’t be happier that we did. I like the doctors so much! I always feel welcomed and comfortable at this practice!

Dr Laurie McDonald is excellent and answered all questions regarding both my children and helped me also regarding a personal issue our family has been having. She is a great asset to Novant!

We just moved here and have never had a pediatrician that we loved. Dr. Macdonald was wonderful! Very informative and great with my kids. She explained everything that she was doing to my 4 year old in terms that she could understand. Dr. Macdonald even came back in to help me with my younger child so that I could give all my attention to my daughter during her vaccines. We are beyond excited to finally have an amazing doctor!

We have just come from Brasil. The doctor routine is very different. But arriving here we meet Doctor MacDonald. The kids had empathy with her . She treat them with great care and respect! Every time we need an urgency we call there and we can schedule an appointment with her at the same day. Thanks so much !!!
