Dr. Macaulay joined the Department of Anatomic Pathology at Moffitt Cancer Center in the summer of 2014, with a joint appointment as Full Professor at the Morsani College of Medicine, USF. His shift to Moffitt was motivated by a desire to contribute more directly to advancements in neuro-oncology, particularly in molecular pathology. He is heavily engaged in providing clinical neuropathology service, fellow/resident teaching, and administrative duties, similar to his role as a member of the Department of Pathology at Dalhousie University from 1999-2014. He has been involved in professional activities both at the local level and on the national stage. His research activities are directed at biology and classification of primary brain tumors, particularly infiltrative gliomas.

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related
questions from our nationally-recognized
Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our
Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients
and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments
that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may
risk the privacy of our patients.
A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that
are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as
comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our
ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from
the previous 12 months.
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey
Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it
can be for several reasons, including:
The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys
to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post
results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of
He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified
surveys currently used for these ratings.
