Dr. Donegan did a total reconstruction of my right rotator cuff in November 2018. I had zero pain following surgery until I started rehab. As anyone will tell you rehab from a rotator cuff surgery is always painful. Because of his skill as a surgeon my recovery and rehab went better than expected. He did an incredible job and I would definitely recommend him for anyone needing this type of surgery.

He is the most approachable & professional Dr I have ever seen. I am an RN with orthopedic experience & I have been so extremely happy with his care & expertise! I had a reverse shoulder replacement after failing a previous regular replacement followed by a fall & fracture after the first surgery. He let me know all my options & was totally open as to any possible complications. I am so happy with my outcome & recommend him highly to anyone especially anyone with a complex issue. I honestly can’t thank him enough!

Dr. Donegan is absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable, friendly and Made me feel better about my son’s surgery. Even my son’s physical therapist was bragging on what a great job he did with that type of shoulder surgery due to sports injury. Highly recommend him to anyone wanting the best of care!

The office staff were ready for me as soon as I walked through the door. After I filled out some information, it was a couple of moments and I was told that he was ready to see me. I had to take an elevator to one floor up. As the doors opened, there stood a nurse to take me to a room. Dr. Donegan came in within a few mins. He was very nice, listened to me and looked me in the eye while I talked also, when he spoke. Dr. Donegan is wonderful along with his staff. Dr. Donegan is a FIVE Star!!

Since I started I’ve went from shots, physical therapy, and 2 surgeries. Thank you so much, but I still have some work to do since my total shoulder replacement. Therapy is next.

Dr Donegan did a complete reverse shoulder replacement on both my wife and me. I have full use of my shoulder now. My wife is now 2 months post op from her full replacement and quickly regaining mobility of her arm and shoulder. Dr Donegan also did a repair on her other shoulder and now, 8 months post op, she has full mobility of that one. Dr Donegan and his staff are absolutely top shelf!! Highly recommended!!!

Dr. Donegan did a great job fixing my collarbone. It was broken in six places. so he put in a plate and 12 screws. There were no problems during the surgery and my recovery was swift. He is a friendly person and easy to talk to. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Saw Dr. Donegan for the 1st time on February 1st. Had already received high accolades from former patients. I was not disappointed. He and his nurse and made me feel most comfortable. I was encouraged as to my outcome when I left.
