If you haven’t been by the clinic in the last year, there is a new face on the roster...It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to Dr. Joseph MacDonald.
Dr. MacDonald was born and raised in Southern Alberta, obtaining his medical degree from the University of Alberta and completing his medical residency training in Calgary. Joe has a wide medical scope, practicing primarily in family medicine, but also as an urgent care physician.
Dr. MacDonald has a special interest in dermatology (including minor procedures), acute care, medical aesthetics, and most importantly Hair Restoration. He has been working along side Dr. Gillespie for the last year, being mentored, gaining knowledge and experience. An opportunity that is rare. Joe attended the International Society or Hair Restoration Surgery Annual Meeting in Prague last year (2017) and looks forward to attending many more. He is excited to continue honing his skills with guidance from Dr. Gillespie as well as many other experienced physicians in the years and meetings to come.
Joe’s energy and passion to educate patients on all their options in regards to hair loss, and commitment to delivering exceptional work makes him an excellent addition to our clinic. He is eager to bring the newest techniques and treatments to our clients and excited to offer our patients even more than before.
We look forward to you meeting Joe, so please come by and see us soon.
Dr. Gillespie completed his medical degree at the University of Alberta. After completing his postgraduate training, he worked as an emergency room physician for two years in a downtown hospital. He then opened and developed a busy general practice.
