Dr. Donahue spent a lot of time explaining my daughter's diagnosis to me and thoroughly answered all of my questions. I'm grateful for the time he took to make sure I understand her diagnosis and potential future treatment options.

Since this was a preliminary visit - to be followed up by an office visit - there was no discussion of treatment options.
