in Minneapolis, MN |
I had visited another "hand specialist" (to remain unnamed, at a different clinic), and, after two injections, had no improvement whatsoever. I visited Dr. Donahue, on a chance that a second opinion prior to surgery would be a good idea. He told me that placement of those injections "cured" 90% of cases. BUT, placement of the injections was critical. Well, he must have found the "sweet spot," because now, I am pain-free, and able to practice my profession without any issues. Great, caring guy!
in Saint Paul, MN |
Went to have cortisone injection into my knuckle (inflammatory arthritis). He measured the bend of my finger and decided it wasn't bad. No conversation on how my job involves detailed work using my dominant hand (the one with swelling, pain, and restricted movement). Injected insufficient cortisone (it's been a week now). Also said he'd never heard of sugar as an inflammatory. (He should try reading some recent medical studies!) I'll find someone younger and female next time!
Possibly the most unpleasant experience I've had a provider's office. I went twice. On both occasions the nurse who roomed me was rude and gruff. On my second appointment, they were 45 mins behind. Not a single apology from staff or doc. Doc had not read my chart, didn't remember me, asked me all the same questions as first visit. Spent 7 minutes with me. Had no suggestions except an MRI. Sloppy, discourteous, unprofessional.
