Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Danahey "My personal approach to patient care focuses on creating an open dialogue with each patient, answering questions and informing patients of their options.

My goal is to help my patient feel completely comfortable in the decision making process."

I highly recommend Dr. Danahey. He did a beautiful job on my daughter's nose. On top of being a great surgeon he's also very accommodating. She was moving out of state and he did everything possible to work with her schedule. Every time she comes home she says at least once "gosh I love my nose."
