Patient Comments (2)
in Knoxville, TN |
It took 5 month to get the first appointment. After the decision was made to do a nerve biopsy , my mother made the appointment for the biopsy in December 2015 and her appointment was June 2016! Dr Donofrio continued to tell my mother that she did NOT have ALS or MS. He said she had neuropathy. We decided to go to Johns Hopkins. She was diagnosed with ALS in less than 2 hours . They did repeat an EMG test but other than that they just looked at Donofrios test results & notes. Devastated

Did not listen to anything I said, look at my history and prescribed medicine I had taken before and it had been proved useless for my condition.
