If it wasn't for my doctor I know I would be dead today. I am very thankful for him and his knowledge.

This was a very painful procedure and I was not able to complete the entire process (emg.) Dr. Donofrio was only present for this part of the test, patients should be told ahead of time to bring an adult with them for support as well as given something to relax. I have never been more upset, it was extremely painful and left in tears, they were not all that sympathetic.

Patient | April 1, 2016

There were a few other pertinent questions I had that were not addressed because it seemed as though Dr. Donofrio had what he needed at that time. The result is waiting for test results and continuing to be in pain that is currently on the edge of management.
Patient | February 23, 2016

This was my first visit and I felt very good with Dr. Donofrio and the information he gave me and for the following appointments to see what might be happening or causing my condition.
