What Families Are Saying About Our Team
Dr. Laura McDonald is approachable, friendly, great with kids, professional, and thorough
Dr. Laura McDonald is approachable, friendly, great with kids, professional, and thorough. We brought our child to see Dr. McDonald for a neuropsychological evaluation when they were in middle school, and again in high school - both times, our child experienced the process as a kind of fun and interesting challenge. We attributed much of this to Dr. McDonald's ease with children, and the non-pressured environment she creates. Any questions or concerns that we have had over the years in between evaluations have always been well addressed, and promptly. We have found her expertise, and the recommendations she has made after each of the evaluation processes, invaluable to our child's development, growth, and emotional and educational successes. – K.B.
What a gift to have found her
Our family has worked with Kerry for five years as she helped guide us through our son's growth from being a teenager to a young, responsible and independent adult. Her patient, caring and thoughtful approach was exactly what everyone in the family needed to succeed. What a gift to have found her! – T.M.
Dr. McDonald is so kind and brilliant

She has a special gift
Our family has been working with Kerry for the last 2 years as we are raising our adopted son who is now years old. We are so grateful for her continuous support and dedication in helping our son. She is the only person he feels comfortable talking with and we have gone through a ton of different therapists and finally found the perfect match for our son. She has a special gift that has touched our hearts and has taught us many strategies as parents on how to communicate and solve problems together. We are so lucky to have found her. – B.N.
