    I have been seeing Regis MacDonald for over 13 years, and have followed her from various clinics. This is the furthest location I have traveled to to see her, and I would not have it any other way. She is the best and most sincere person I've ever had as a medical provider. I almost consider as a friend too! The staff at your office have always been great. I also met the mammography technician for the first time. She was very personable and kind ever step of the way!
