I'm so blessed to have Dr. Donaldson as a doctor. He's kind and caring. He listens to what I have to say and answers questions I may have. I'm so grateful to Dr. Donaldson for taking care of me during my surgery. Everything went well and I'm doing better. UPMC is so fortunate to have such a awesome doctor like him.

Dr. Donaldson did not seem to be himself this last visit sadly ~ while he still provided a plan of action for the problem I'm having he seemed distracted and just not himself ~ I want to thank him for giving me back my legs and all the care and advice he's given since ~ I hope all is well with him
