I found Dr. Donovan to be abrupt and autocratic. I had two surgeries by this doctor and after the second surgery he never even came to see me or my family member post surgery to tell me how what he found and how things went. I would not use him again nor would I recommend him.

Very disappointed w Dr Donovan. No bedside manner, didn't listen to my worries about shoulder pain. Came in, gave me a shot of whatever in disappointed& told me to go for p.t. upstairs. Follow-up visit was worse than 1st visit. I told him shot didn't work. He told me it had to have worked due to medicine in shot. I said im sorry that shot didn't work!! He then told me i needed surgery. I stated I could not be off work 6 wks as im a hairdresser. He got up & stated, call me when u want the surgery

This excellent doctor treated my 88 year old mother like she was the most important patient he ever saw. His bedside manner is flawless and he genuinely cares about his patients. My mother also cannot say enough about how much she appreciates him. (She also thinks he is very handsome.)

For hands, there is no better Doctor than Dr Donovan. He performed magic in my painful hand and got me back to work in this same day. Now my pain is gone and my quality of life has improved markedly!

I liked that he asked if I had any other issues most doctors don't ask. Told me to do a follow up appointment for my other knee to see what he sees. I will be back in January.....

I was treated by Dr Donovan after a wrist fracture was treated incorrectly leaving me with minimal use of my hand. Dr Donovan was able to repair the fracture and within a few weeks I had nearly full use of the Hand and wrist
