Dr. Donohue is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He has done rotator cuff surgery and meniscus surgery for me. I highly recommend him.

I've had two surgeries with Dr. Donahue - 1st a right should rotator cuff repair - 2nd a right arm bicep tendon tear. Both surgeries went extremely well, with no difficulties following either one. I like the follow-up procedure SOAR uses - and if I did have questions or concerns Dr. Donahue was extremely prompt in getting back to me. If I needed to see him at the office they were very accommodating. He is very polite, professional, and definitely knows his area of expertise!

He was curtious & efficient. At first, he seemed abrupt. I realized he was a pragmatic. Yet he was also gracious. He was clear & consise on my plan of care & the actions needed to return me to as "normal" a life style as soon as possible. My questions were answered to my satisfaction in unhurried ways. Thank You, Dr Donahue, to you & your team!!!
