Patient Comments (3)

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.
