In March I was refer by my cardiologist to be part of a tricuspid valve clip repair study Dr Donovan is heading. I made it through the TTE procedure in May. While under sedation, I heard him say I would benefit greatly from the clip repair but I did not meet the qualifications. I attempted serveral times to find out the reason, but all his nurse would say was all participants had to be in a "XYZ" category and I fell in a "WXYZ" category. Never got response from Dr himself. My cardiologist tried contacting him directly and he did not recieve a response either. I was then referred to another valve specialist who reviewed my case to present to the surgical team for review. Dr. Donavan is a member of that team. Today I recieved word that I was not recommended for surgery and I have to wait for Dr. Donavan to talk with my cardiologist. I suspecting that if Dr Donavan had responded to my cardiologist in the beginning, I could have saved time and money with the second. I am waiting again.??

I have been a patient of Dr. Donovan for well over 10 yrs. While I have not had any major procedures, my visits with him are always informational and enjoyable. His light hearted and relaxed approach is always appreciated. I find him kind, polite, and very knowledgable. I certainly would recommend him . He was recommended to me by my personal physician.

I've been a patient of Dr. Donovan for 10 years. I was a RN of 30+ years when I first saw him for a stress test prior to my having surgery. I ended up needing 4 stents placed. I continue to see him because he is very well qualified in cardiology. I see doctors who are the best in their field. I research them and ask colleagues for recommendations. He's rarely on time, but that's because of emergencies and his popularity. I bring a book to read. He explains procedures and heart conditions in simple terms.

I enjoy my visits every time I go. They make you feel at home and so does Doc Donavan. He is very polite, kind and comical. I usually get "WHITE COAT SYNDROME " sweaty hands , and nervous. I don't get it with him and his staff. I would highly recommend him to any one with any type of heart problems. He is tops in my book. Thank you all.

The doctor is great, but his office staff seems to be disorganized. Communication regarding changed appointments and insurance questions go un-answered. Voicemail messages are sometimes returned. This creates stress that this cardiac patient neither wants nor needs.

Dr Donovan has a great bedside manner and always has an up-beat attitude. Knowledgeable in his specialty. However, I believe he has too many patients because on most visits I feel rushed or he is running behind schedule.

He is attentive to medical needs, listens, and responds with a plan. When my appointment is over, I leave with an added feeling of comfort and a reminder that I should not only take care of my condition (whatever that might be) but also enjoy life to the max with that condition. He dispenses medicine and joy!

This was my first visit with Dr. Donovan as we have just relocated to the Boerne area. Dr. Donovan's staff was friendly and thorough in gathering my relevant medical history. Dr. Donovan's was very quick to put me at ease with this outgoing, warm, caring demeanor. I've had some wonderful doctors before, but I don't think I've ever had one that made me feel this comfortable and cared about. My only issue was that the wait time was extraordinarily long - I waited for almost and hour and a half. As this was my first visit, I'll give them the benefit of this being an unusual experience.
