Dr Donohue and staff are efficient, knowledgeable and caring

Completely trust Dr. Donahue's medical expertise and opinion in treating my child. Everyone was obviously running behind schedule and that was evident in how rushed the visit was. This was my second visit-my first visit, Dr. Donahue spent significantly more time with us and it was very much appreciated. I will continue to see him, not a huge deal to me, but it was rushed and that may be of greater concern to other patients who didn't have the "relaxed" first visit.

Dr Donahue is absolutely fantastic. I feel he truly cares about our son when we see him. He's very informative and we never leave with unanswered questions. We are moving soon and will truly miss him as a provider. Very thankful for him and his care over the last 3 years
