    Biography
    Dr. Macdonald specializes in Radiation Oncology and moved to Humboldt County to join the department in 2016 after practicing Radiation Oncology in the Army for eight years. Dr. Macdonald was the Principal investigator for the “Targeted Radiation Therapy for Cancer Initiative,” a $2.7M multi-institutional Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) grant which includes funding for prostate cancer, breast cancer, and palliative radiation therapy research. Dr. Macdonald aims to treat each patient as he would a family member or close friend – by guiding the diagnostic work-up, discussing options for treatment, and making recommendations based on national guidelines and an understanding of the medical literature.  In his free time, Dr. Macdonald enjoys spending time with his family, including outdoor activities such as running, hiking, and soccer, and indoor activities such as reading, music, and volunteer work at church.
