I used to see Dr. Dongell at the Palm Harbor location and when I found out that she transferred here I was so excited. I'm telling everyone in my condo complex. If you want a great doctor go here. I'm serious.

My husband and I have never seen a female physician before so we were a little unsteady, but what a wonderful doctor. Her staff seem to love her. We were treated well. She is very attentive and really listened to us.

My old doctor stopped taking my insurance and I have found it difficult to find a new one, but this doctor makes me regret not looking for a new doctor earlier. She had addressed issues I have had for years and I feel so much better. What a great doctor.
