I had a jagged break of my right humerus. He recommended allowing it to be monitored, rather than immediate surgery. I have done Occupational Therapy and have regained tremendous dexterity.

He does a great job. I've had the shots before do when he comes in it does not take him long to administer the shot. It doesn't hurt and it took about two days before I was practicing my setve.

Last Friday I was scheduled for surgury and they had canceled it on Thursday with out explanation and to this day 1 week later they refuse to tell me why my wife and I have called everyday with a return call promised and never getting one. Meanwhile I sit here in a massive amount of pain and Dr Donegan and his staff refusing to give us any explanation of why my shoulder replacement surgery was canceled. To this point I've been very happy with them. He has performed 3 surgeries on me.

Dr Donegan is a very skilled surgeon and very confident in his work. He was very encouraging to me through my ups and downs. When I was worried about a pain or soreness in my shoulder he assured me that it was just the normal healing process. He’s seen enough of these cases that he knows what’s normal and what’s not. And Chesley Bloyd is also very knowledgeable about what to expect as the process goes along

From the minute I arrived to my check-out everyone went out of their way to meet my needs. Dr Donegan took the time to explain every detail of my issue, solutions and recovery plan. For that I’m very appreciative.

I manage a mma gym, as well as coach mma for a living. When I sustained an injury and had to have shoulder surgery, it was depressing. BUT, within no time, Dr. Donegan has gotten me back to normal and now I can do what I love again. And he made every step along the way enjoyable. All the consultations, the follow-ups, the surgery itself, the post-op, the physical therapy, all of it. Really thankful for what he did for me!
