I have been using this practice for more than 20 years. Dr. Donat and his wife Susan, and the nurse practitioner are very caring and will lister to your needs, as well as on call availability. Despite being a very busy practice,I have not found the wait time unreasonable and if I have to wait, it’s totally worth it! No complaints about this practice ever.
