Quick visit, but still answered all our questions and concerns.

Dr. Donahue was very kind and friendly, but you could tell we were low on the totem pole as we were not as life-threatening as other cases. It also was quite confusing what our direction was and what some tangible things we could do either at home or outsourced.

Dr. Donahue was very thorough and informative. We learned more about our son's nystagmus in the 20 minutes with him than we ever had. I appreciate the time he spent despite the patient volume.
