My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I want for you what I want for myself - a physician who takes time to listen to me, who cares about me and who understands what is important to me and my family. I believe that common chronic health problems, like high blood pressure, vascular disease and diabetes, can be treated and often reversed with an intense focus on lifestyle changes and appropriate medications. I enjoy creating lasting relationships with patients that foster trust, care and well-being. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. 

I have practiced as a family physician/primary care doctor in the Tallahassee/Monticello area since 1992. I have particular interests in cholesterol management, aviation medicine, travel medicine and end of life care. In my new MDVIP-affiliated practice of personalized healthcare, I am looking forward to focusing on you and your individual life and health goals.

Words are inadequate to describe what Dr. MacKay has meant to our family. On a personal level, Dr. MacKay's forward thinking, deliberate approach to my medical needs has kept me from significant problems. He has been there for my children and for my wife during scary times. He is more than a doctor, he is a friend, trusted advisor and confidant. That is everything a doctor should be. He… See more

from Bonnie in FL February 14, 2024 for John T. MacKay, MD

After falling and scraping my upper arm, I contracted Covid and couldn’t go to the doctor’s office to have my arm looked at. I thought it might be infected, so I called Dr. John Mackay and asked if I could text him a photo of the injury and advise me as to what to do. It was only a short time after sending him the photo that he responded and gave me instructions. The injury healed nicely and I… See more

from Ted in FL February 12, 2024 for John T. MacKay, MD

Dr. John Mackay has been my doctor for nearly twenty years. He is a very caring doctor, always available to help, or give advice, at any hour of the day or night.
Not long ago, after a surgical procedure caused me excruciating pain, I had to contact him at 4:00am to seek his help! He calmly listened to my explanation of symptoms and outlined the next steps I should take. I followed his… See more

from Vincent in FL February 11, 2024 for John T. MacKay, MD

Five years ago I had reached my limits with, at the time, my PCP. After almost 2-years of lengthy waits in the large physician practice office, the Doc spending more time entering information occupied with his electronic device, little eye contact or questions of a personal nature, failure to reveal lab results from the post-labs draw, and exiting the room without speaking never to return. I… See more

from Kaki in FL February 11, 2024 for John T. MacKay, MD

I broke my foot and wrist at the same time 3 years ago. I could not use crutches as the broken bones were on the same side of my body. The ER doctor said they could not release me without a wheel chair due to further injury anticipated if I went home. It was a Saturday night and I called Dr. MacKay -. He responded and said he would meet my husband at his office and give him the offices’ wheel… See more

from Darlene in FL February 10, 2024 for John T. MacKay, MD

I joined the MDVIP program by becoming a patient of Dr. John Mackay. I was tired of doctors belonging to large groups that require their doctors to get patients in and out in 15 minutes, staff that doesn't handle appointments well and forgets to make referrals as asked for. As I was getting older, and was more concerned about health issues, I felt I needed a doctor who would spend time… See more
