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.
September 26, 2016
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.
August 01, 2016
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.
July 30, 2016
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.
