Kathleen T. – Aug 11, 2021
I have significant history of skin cancers in my family but I had managed to avoid the curse until earlier this year. My dermatologist diagnosed me with a melanoma on my back and referred me to Dr Donoway. From the first visit and through all subsequent appointments, I have been treated with complete professionalism and genuine care. The surgery itself went very smooth with no surprises. One of the best interactions I've experienced with any physician.

I’m an RN of 30 years and have worked with many different physicians. I can count on one hand those who are superior physicians and Dr Donoway is absolutely one of these. Here is how I describe superior: these physicians are dedicated to their patients and are accessible to them as well as their family. I live 3000 miles away from one of Dr Donoway’s patients who is a family member and to make a very long story short, this patient is very complex and she lives 1000 miles away from Dr Donoway. Because of her complexity and her history he has acted as a consultant for her, answered EVERY one of my calls about her in some very chaotic and tumultuous situations with her. He is dedicated to his patients and if you’re facing the need for oncology surgery I would highly recommend this physician. You’ll be in the best of hands!
