I had a few X-rays done on May 10 & I asked the doctor if I should make follow up appointment to discuss the results but he said no that he would call me. Today is May 21 & I had to reach out to Dr. Donohue v?a my chart email because I have not heard from him or his office regarding my results. And I'm surprised because the doctor knows how desperate I am to find out what is going on because of the amount of pain that I'm in.

Very happy with Dr. Donohue. He's very straightforward and clearly explains all my treatment options; listens well and always addresses any concerns I might have. It makes me feel as though we have a partnership in determining my treatment which is how is should be. I've moved around a lot so I've seen a good number of rheumatologists; most of them were very skilled but some just wanted to dictate treatment. I very much appreciate that my input is valued here. He also has a great "bedside manner" and comes in with a ready smile. I've had some providers that were excellent doctors but zero personality - it makes a difference to the patient.
