Pippa Macdonald, MD
Dr. Pippa Macdonald understands that every patient’s journey is different. She listens closely and empathetically to understand each person’s symptoms and unique experience. Because neurological conditions can affect people’s identity and function, she believes that creating a warm, judgment-free environment is critical.
Dr. Macdonald treats adults of all ages. She particularly appreciates the long-term relationships she develops with patients. She has a special interest in headaches, peripheral neuropathy, and muscle diseases.
Dr. Macdonald earned a bachelor of arts at the University of California, Berkeley, with dual majors in molecular and cellular biology and psychology. She earned her doctor of medicine at the University of Hawai`i in Honolulu, Hawaii. She completed an internal medicine internship, neurology residency, and neuromuscular medicine fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. She is board certified in neurology.
Away from medicine, she enjoys reading, running short distances, and gardening. She has volunteered her medical experience in Guam, Japan, and Botswana.
