After numerous failed attempts at managing a family member's illness, I asked Dr. Donaldson to outline a plan of action. I can not tell you what an improvement I saw within just a couple of weeks! I will forever be grateful for his help.

I have been Dr. Donaldson's patient for 18 years. In that time he has literally saved my life twice. He has always been compassionate, truthful, patient and fully informative. He has honestly explained every detail of my condition to me and has clearly described my options and choices without lecturing me. I have ignored his advice on two occasions and both times I nearly died before he could intervene to save me. I trust Dr. Donaldson completely.
