I didn't get the answer I wanted but the doctor was very good at explaining the reason why. He was so patient with me.

This goes for both people that saw me in the exam room, they left no stone unturned in terms of information, concerns, or even fears that other patients may have had. I will highly recommend Dr. Donahue and this practice for exceeding the best standards in medical care and humanness. Should be a model for any other practice that is struggling in this area.
