Thomas Evans in Nutley , NJ – Nov 03, 2018
My wife was told that she had AML while being treated for pneumonia; she was transferred to Hackensack University Medical Center, where it was recommended that she have a bone marrow transplant. She was assigned to Dr. Michele Donato. We checked out her credentials and she was highly recommended, both my wife and I couldn't be happier with Dr Donato; her confidence, knowledge/skill, caring attitude, explanation of treatment, and her positive personality has made our journey to recovery a blessin
