    I had been seeing Dr. Donovan for around 8 months. I take a controlled substance and had to physically pick up the script. 7 out of the 8 months he wrote the wrong prescription, or left off key things, like his signature. When I approached him about the seizures I had been having (I never had them before), he dismissed it. When I spoke up to point out his negligence he said "Listen, I don't care, I have malpractice insurance. I've been doing this for 25 years." That is a verbatim quote.

    This psychopath lorded over me while he doped me up with drugs. He never really did a review of my "symptomology." Research indicates that major tranquilizers should be used short term at the most, not like candy. My "symptoms" were CAUSED by the drugs. I know the intimate details of his life he shared with me over the 9 years I saw him. He lies about his credentials, check out the diploma from Northwestern Medical School in his office (he went to Med Sch in Mexico). Also, check out Vitals.c
