What People Say About Dr. James Donovan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Donovan has been a highly valued "guiding light" to me going from a time of rising PSA through a prostate MRI & it's subsequent use in a Fusion Biopsy and eventual diagnosis of Prostate Cancer. His expertise and wonderful listening demeanor led me through comfortable, confident steps & multi-disciplinary consultations and to my personal decision of a radiation type treatment. His post treatment consultations, still ongoing, are highly valued. His patient visitations are exceptional

Dr. Donovan is the best in his field. He doesn't show a sense of humor but he does have jokes when he isn't under pressure. Dr. Donovan really knows his stuff… If it wasn't for Dr. Donovan I would still be in the hospital. His staff are also why he is so good.

He took very good care of my Mother when she was very sick with infection from kidney stones. Very pleasant to talk with, very concerned with the patients well being.
