When I saw Dr. Donaldson it was more than 1 hour after my appointment time. That much wait time is unacceptable.

I've been seeing Dr Donaldson for close to 10 yrs. He had a great bed dude manner, is thorough, empathetic and very knowledgeable l! I trust him completely

I really liked Dr. Donaldson. He was very patient and explained everything to me. If I ever need surgery I hope he would be the Dr. to do it.

July 31, 2018

Dr. Donaldson and his residents were very attentive and informative about my care.

July 31, 2018

I felt like Dr Donaldson was not very interested/motivated to help me, because I am leaving the US soon, and everything he suggested would just take too long in the time I had left here. I had the feeling, since I am leaving soon, and won't stay his patient because of that, and I won't provide any expensive tests, he did not put much efford in finding answers and help for me. I very very dissapointed.
