I am very disappointed with the pt care I received from Dr Donahue and his staff. I presented with a back injury, he ordered PT and gave me a script. Ultimately I needed an MRI. The image was taken on a Thurs. It was Mon. before I got results and I had to call to get them. I never got a call back from a clinician - just the staff who read from a script. I asked questions - she couldn't answer. 3 days later I am told to make an appt if I want to discuss my results. Looking for a new MD

He was very nice to me in the office and I always felt like I was in good hands. I ended up having to have surgery on my knee and was informed on the procedure, recovery, and expectations. I am back to running without pain.

He isn't nice and doesn't understand that injuries are a vulnerable time in an athlete's career. When he diagnoses you, he isn't gentle about it and isn't reassuring at all. It took him 5 days to fix my MRI order and i had to delay treatment. He doesn't wait at the end of appointments to answer questions.
