Patient Comments

Patient Comments are gathered from the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey and displayed in full. Patients are not identified in order to respect patient privacy.
The information was valuable and reasonable, but, the doctor was dismissive and not very respectful.

Highly recommended.

I'm very satisfied with and grateful for Dr. Donofrio's treatment of my myasthenia gravis over the past ten years. His knowledge and attentiveness have been a great help to me.

Patient | May 21, 2018

No new insights (was a 2nd opinion review of prior records).

Dr. Donofrio took his time to explain everything in details.
Patient | May 2, 2018

Best Dr I have seen, and the only one who could diagnose my problem.
Patient | April 22, 2018

I have seen many specialist, mostly in NYC, and none of them have shown the care and compassion that Dr. Donofrio and his team have shown. They take me, my condition and my concerns very seriously and offer as much reassurance as they possibly can, especially considering the rarity of my disorder. I am incredibly grateful to be in his care and he has given me hope when I have felt none for a long time. I will be eternally grateful and indebted to him for that. I can't thank him enough for what he has done to help myself and my family navigate this through this ever changing journey. If he gets a chance to read this, I hope he knows that I hold him at the highest esteem in his profession.
