Professional Statement
Dr. MacLeod was born in Torrance and grew up in Southern California and earned her medical degree at Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific. She is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician with a strong emphasis on preventive care for her patients. Childhood asthma introduced her to the world of medicine and from an early age she was hooked on becoming a doctor. Working her way through school as a grocery checker, she gained life experience which has proven to be valuable with interacting with her patients. Dr. MacLeod takes great pleasure in helping her patients achieve optimum health and longevity in her Family Medicine office. Proactively treating agressive medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels as well as general health maintenance are the cornerstone of Dr. MacLeod's healthcare philosophy. As a proud South Bay resident she feels especially fortunate to be able to give back to her community in this way. When not practicing medicine, Dr. MacLeod enjoys spending quality time with her husband riding on their recumbent tandem bicycle and traveling.

Dr. MacLeod was very courteous and professional and one of the best doctors I have encountered in a while. She did not rush me and made sure to address every concern I had. I think I found my new PCP! The blood draw technician was also super helpful and courteous. I forget her name!

Concerns my blood pressure was low [...] and provider did not dig into possible related symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, etc. My mom who's in the medical field raised concern, and on researching on my own, I learned low pressure coupled with dizziness, headaches, etc. (all on my chart) can be a concern.

Dr. MacLeod is and has always been excellent at engaging me as a patient to determine the best course of treatment I may need. I never feel like i'm being rushed to "check the boxes" and get me out. She takes the appropriate amount of time to explore the issues and work to provide the best care possible.

My experience with this doctor is always very good. The follow up by the staff was not great. I was told by the doctor that she would have my referral that afternoon and that someone in her office would call me that day with the name and number for the referral. I received that phone call almost a week later along with the mailed referral.

After I left, Dr. Macleod referred me for additional screenings that we did not discuss in person. I found it to be pretty awkward to find out the doctor wanted me to have a mammogram from the administrative assistant who called with referral information.
