Denver, CO |
Dr. Donato was recommended to me from a highly renown gynecologist, said he was one of the best surgeons. Our original consultation was very easy and professional, answered all of my questions in his office and again the day of surgery. My hysterectomy went very well, have had little pain or discomfort just as he said I would. I would recommend Dr. Daniel Donato with a five star rating and know that anyone would be in good hands.

Dr. Donato was wonderful. He was direct and explained my situation very well. He eased my fears. I would recommend him to family and friends without hesitation.

in Brighton |
First of all, I've just returned home from my post op appointment with Dr. Donato, and the news he gave me was fantastic! I absolutely realize how lucky I am. Too many people never get that good news. My own Mother was one of them. Please, don't hesitate choosing Dr. Donato for your procedure. Don't be afraid, either. I had a a radical hysterectomy performed laparoscopically, and I was home by 2:30 in the afternoon requiring little more than ibuprofen for "discomfort"...I wasn't ever in pain.
in Denver, CO |
Very good experience with Dr Donato, he explains everything inlayman's. Terms, he has good bedside manners, he gets you in for surgery very fast. I think he is the best surgeon in his field. His staff is also great!

in Denver, CO |
Dr. Donate made feel at ease and explained well the procedures I was to have. Everyone that I talked to (Vicki) to Mary who checked me in were professional and funny and kind. Great staff!
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Donato put me at ease from the first moment we met when my mind wasn't at all at ease after the diagnostic tests. He gave me his professional opinion that seemed so far off from the test results. He could tell I was worried and got me in to see him within 3 days of receiving the referral and surgery scheduled 4 days after that. I am a Veteran and the VA referred me to Dr. Donato and it was the best experience under some not so great circumstances.
in Morrison, CO |
I was referred to Dr. Donato by my internist. She said he was the best in gyn/oncology issues. At our initial consultation, Dr. Donato put me at ease by explaining my situation and the surgical procedure he would use to eliminate the problem. He was patient, respectful and asked several times if I had any questions. I was able to be scheduled for the robotic surgery on the very next day. It was successful and as he said, minimally invasive with a quick recovery. He was right on all counts.
in Aurora, CO |
Dr Donato was very confident in explaining my situation and surgery and that made me feel comfortable.

in Centennial, CO |
I felt as though I was in very good hands with Dr. Donato, he made my husband and I feel at ease with the procedure that he was doing. He took the time to answer all of our questions, even though he talks very fast we NEVER felt rushed. Thank you VERY MUCH!
in Broomfield, CO |
I had a very large pelvic mass that needed to be removed. Dr. Donato was referred to me by my regular physician as well as my OB/Gyn. He handled everything very professionally and compassionately. My tumor was a benign fibroid, but a unique one (outside the uterus), so we really were not sure what exactly would happen when I went into surgery. Dr. Donato and I made an action plan together, and he listened to my priorities concerning my treatment. I felt like a patient, not a not a number.
in Littleton, CO |
Dr. Donato provided excellent care before, during and post surgery. Calming demeanor and excellent surgeon.

in Aurora, CO |
Dr. Donato was terrific. We did not know what he was going to find when he went in....cyst or cancer, but he was very reassuring and explained the entire process and answered all my questions, both before and after surgery. I felt very confident going into the surgery and afterwards. I can not think of anything I wish could have been better.

in Lafayette, CO |
My oncologist & family doctor both referred me to Dr. Donato for a hysterectomy. Dr. Donato consulted w/ me, answered questions & concerns. Discussed in detail how the procedure would be accomplished. Discussed what would happen in the surgery & what to expect after. I felt fully prepared & decided to schedule the surgery 8 days later. The surgery could not have gone better. I walked out the same day, I was able to drive a week later. I'm a little sore, but recovering better than expected

I received excellent care. Dr. Donato is not particulary a hand-holder...but was direct about his diagnosis, clear about treatment options and was gracious and patient while I processed the information and made decisions regarding treatments/procedures, and was considerate of my thoughts and opinions.
