I have recommended Dr. Donovan to others and they were very pleased with their care. My son also sees Dr. Donovan. I have absolute TRUST in him.
December 19, 2016
Considering that I had to wait almost an hour for my appointment, the provider did not rush through my appointment nor short-change me. He carefully went through my concerns and explained everything in great detail. Perhaps he spent more time with me than he should have, but I appreciated his time and concerns very much.

One of the best physicians I have had in the more than six states where I have worked.

The Doctor was using the new computer system for patient care and it seemed to take a lot of his concentration to get the information updated online.

My experience with Dr. Donovan was very good. I rate him at 5. Actually he is a 10 in my book. He explained everything very clearly to me and answered my questions well. I feel very confident about Dr. Donovan's care for me.

Dr. D. was a little vague with some questions. probably to keep the panic & worry down. As for recommending him to others, he has an unusual personality that would not fit with everyone I know. Professionally, I would not have a problem.
July 12, 2016
Dr. Donovan has always been friendly, helpful, respectful and professional in all the years I have been his patient.
June 13, 2016
I have been with Dr. Donovan for years now and hope to be with him for many more. I know he cares for his patients and enjoys what he does. I also am an ex-employee of wheaton health care and been a patient before I had worked there and I always have recommend your hospitals and doctors I have seen to people I know.

Dr. Donovan is a top notch doctor. He was very diligent in finding out what was causing my discomfort (in this case I had to have my appendix removed). I am so thankful to have a doctor as knowledgeable and caring as Dr. Donovan. He knew i was going out of the country soon and made sure he diagnosed my problem so I would be able to enjoy my vacation. I have told of my positive experiences with family and friends, some of which are looking for a great doctor.
