Dr. Joseph MacDonald

Medical Doctor

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. Dr. MacDonald is unique in that he has both a wide medical scope (working shifts as an urgent care physician, running a dermatological procedure (lumps and bumps) clinic, seeing patients in primary care, and as a medical aesthetics director) and a focused expertise in Hair Restoration where he dedicates the majority of his time.


Dr. MacDonald was personally trained for over a year and a half by one of the most respected men in the hair transplant industry, Dr. Gillespie, and continues to work alongside him. This rare mentorship has allowed Dr. MacDonald to gain accelerated knowledge and experience, setting him well ahead of his peers. He has also trained with other world-leading surgeons at the Hair Transplant 360 course and various ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery) annual conferences. 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.


Dr. MacDonald’s energy and passion to educate patients on all of their hair loss options, and his commitment to delivering exceptional work, are assets we are privileged to have at Prime Hair Clinic. He is eager to bring the newest techniques and treatments to our clients and excited to offer our patients even more than before.
