I saw Dr. DONNELLY for an injury to my knee. An emoyee heard it pop from 3 feet away and this Dr. Didn't do an X Ray or MRI. Told me to take a couple weeks off work and wear a knee brace. I returned to work and wore that knee brace due to pain year's later and am still having pain. I don't think he properly handled this as it had to get cortisone shots at kaiser years later and has been years of pain. I feel he dismissed me as a patient without proper research as to what actually happened.

Dr Donnelly replaced my left shoulder. The experience was amazing. Great attention paid to pain control (night and day comparison to my knee replacement experience). Dr Donnelly used my X-ray to show me exactly what he'd be doing. He answered all my questions - even those I didn't know I had :). His staff is also great. They remember patients by name and provide a warm personal service. I've moved to southern CA but hope to come back to have Dr Donnelly perform my knee replacement.

Love Dr Donnelly he did my leg surgery after a bad fall where I broke both bones in my lower leg. His manner is calm and very nurturing and he's very very good at what he does. I would recommend him 100% ... (Btw he added a rod the full length of my lower leg-no pain recovering very well)

Dr. Donnelly has been very considerate and caring regarding my shoulder. He has recommended surgery and really no other option so I can regain total mobilization of my arm. He was very informative explaining the procedure.
