Dr. Donahue was very good - again, our only issue was getting the appointment, and waiting for our appointment.

I had to remind him of all of my son's history with him. Also had to tell him which eye and then which eyelid. He had no clue who we were or why we were there. He hadn't read his file.

Dr. Donahue is a wonderful doctor. He has been seeing my son for 9 months now and we are very impressed with him and his knowledge and dedication.

Dr. Donahue is by far one of the BEST! We are so incredibly thankful for him.
Patient | July 24, 2018

My favorite thing about Dr. Donahue is that he is great at assessing my ability to understand him. Within my first visit he sized me up and knew exactly how much he needed to explain and to what degree. Too often doctors either talk in jargon that patients don't understand or dumb it down so much that we feel like they think we're stupid. This is not the case with Dr. Donahue and I appreciate the effort he puts forth in that regard.

I was very impressed that dr Donahue responded to my email within an hour.
Patient | April 25, 2018

We have seen Dr. Donahue since my child was in the NICU almost 7 years ago, and we will not go anywhere else or see anyone else. He's great!

The doctor is new to us and we haven't experience any negative situations.

Nonchalant, dismissive.
