It is my first visit; referred by a very good friend that loves this office. All my expectations were fulfilled. I filled and emailed paperwork prior to the appointment. Schedule was on time, 5 minutes after arrival my vital were being taken and 5 minutes after that Dr. Donkor was greeting me. Dr Donkor was very thorough, and made me feel very comfortable, specially when he said that he would give me the best service possible. Nurses Orinthia and Karla MA, were very efficient too! They immediately schedule my CT Scan appointment and gave me the instructions that I need to follow; so courteous and friendly. Absolutely an amazing experience.

Dr. Donkor is the best doctor I have seen - ever! He is thoughtful and explains everything. Operated on my son and I had complete confidence that everything would turn out well and it did. He exceeded all expectations! So nice to find a doctor of this caliber in South Florida!

Great bedside manners! Very caring and efficient. He explained everything to me in detail. He was calm and reassuring. He was able to schedule my cholecystectomy quickly, even in this time of Covid. His surgical coordinator, Carla, was extreme helpful and on top of everything. Orenthia, NP, was great, as well. The whole experience was great. Tracie

I made the appointment on line, but when I called to confirm, the person questioned me for 5 minutes the reason of my visit, then she said she will call me after she spoke to the Dr. But when she called back, she said you have to see your Primary care physician and cancelled my appointment, but it still showed on your website. Obviously the DR was not interested to treat me as I was not a big surgical case. I am a retired physician and know which specialist to see for my condition

The most caring and compassionate Physician I have ever met. Thank you for saving my husbands life when other doctors gave him a diagnosis that did not require urgent care. You immediately saw the need for emergency surgery thus saving his life. We are forever indebted to you. May blessings unlimited be yours

Dr. Donkor came highly recommended, and my own experience with him and his office staff validated the glowing praise I’d heard. Donkor is a skilled surgeon with a compassionate bedside manner. His nursing staff and office administrators were equally efficient and attentive.

Excellent care from not only Dr Donkor but his whole office staff, including Karla and Orinthia! From the very moment I walked in the office I felt safe and confident that I made the right decision. Wonderful professionalism and care, they took me on a short notice as I work out of the country and my time was limited in Fort Lauderdale. Surgery was excellent and the staff at Westside regional Hospital was also top-notch.
