Excellent Treatment from an Caring and Expert Practitioner!
I met Dr. McDonald almost 10 years ago. Mel was recommended to me by my general practitioner following an accident to assist in my overall treatment and recovery. Mel's acupuncture treatments, as well as his nutritional recommendations, were literally lifesavers in my overall recovery. I have continued to see Mel for various reasons during the last decade, ranging from physical injuries to headaches to stress-related issues. Mel has successfully assisted and guided me thru various challenges as well as continuing to advice me on nutrition. Dr. McDonald is an excellent doctor that truly cares about his patients and their overall well-being. I highly recommend him!

Dr. McDonald is the best doctor I know. He is the sweetest, most patient and attentive person, who truly cares so much about his patients. I have struggled with an immune deficiency and am currently facing consequences due to the over prescribing of antibiotics from my childhood. Dr. McDonald's treatments have helped me drastically. I have more energy, my immune system is stronger, and my GI problems have improved immensely. I highly recommend him for any of your concerns.

Customer Testimonials

I highly recommend Dr. McDonald. He is kind, attentive, and very knowledgable. He has helped me immensely with thyroid issues, stress, and even muscle pain. I cannot praise this practice enough.


My experience with Dr. McDonald has been wonderful. He has a very caring and kind demeanor. I never feel rushed during the appointments and I know that I am well taken care of. He has helped me tremendously with his excellent skills in not only Acupuncture, but natural medicine needs as well. What a wonderful outcome for me to be able to control some of my medical issues and come off of prescription drugs by switching to healthier alternative methods.
I highly recommend Dr. McDonald.


I went to Dr. McDonald for the "stress treatment" that he offers. I was a bit hesitant at first because i have horrible anxiety and i HATE needles. I am so glad i tried it because the treatment was very successful and I didn't even feel the needles! i definitely recommend trying it out!


Dr. McDonald was referred to me by a friend. I was looking for some help for my son's anxiety and ADHD symptoms. My son has struggled with anxiety for several years now. We have tried prescription drugs and they just seem to make him very agitated. Since he has started seeing Dr. McDonald for acupuncture treatments he has had much less anxiety. Dr. McDonald also has him on some natural supplements to help treat the underlying cause of the anxiety and ADHD symptoms.
I have also had acupuncture treatments from Dr. McDonald; as you see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I have not been this relaxed in years!! Very thankful that we have found Dr. McDonald!!
