Dr. Donahue is not only the greatest orthopedic surgeons I've worked with, but hes one of the best doctors I've ever been to in general. I have had 3 different knee injuries (ACL and meniscus on both knees at different times) - all of which Dr. Donahue repaired. He always has made the best decisions for me, which makes recovery that much easier. I feel incredibly comfortable in his presence and trust him completely.

Dr. Donahue was very straight-forward in his diagnosis and what needed to be done. He was clear in his explanations of the x-ray results and the MRI results and answered my questions thoroughly.

I moved to CA knowing I needed surgery for a torn meniscus. I scheduled an appointment for right after my arrival. Dr Donahue was very thorough in showing me the MRI and explaining the issue. I was able to get on the surgery schedule for the next day and the whole team was great. At my follow up appointment Dr Donahue went over the pictures from the surgery and explained what he did. So glad I found the right Dr.

I have been to the SOAR group in the past. It was my first choice for an Orthopedic procedure. My cousin had rotator cuff surgery by Dr. Donahue and recommend I do the same. Great experience!
