Book telephone or video consultations with Dr. Deidre Macdonald
Dr. Macdonald offers telephone or video consultations so you can enjoy your visit in the comfort and convenience of your home or office. Video calls are a great way to connect; almost as good as a face-to-face meeting.
For video calls, we are using the JANE platform, as it offers scheduling of appointments and is easy to use. JANE has the security features doctors need. We are very happy with the security and functionality of JANE.
As of May 11, we are open for drop in for supplement refills.
Or we offer non-contact pick up during office hours. We can also mail them directly to you (free shipping on orders over $100).
