I saw Dr. Donnan because I injured my shoulder during a walk, and I was grateful to be seen on an urgent basis. I was very impressed with Dr. Donnan on every level. He was kind, thorough, reassuring and attentive with my care and questions. What impressed me even more was that he looked at my record, noticed I was due for some tests, asked me about them and gave me some guidance on those issues and my current medications. Considering the reason for my visit, I was grateful that he took the time to look at me as a whole patient. His manner is so kind and helpful! Thank you!

The weak link for this office is the medication personnel. Orders and scheduled meds are problematic and have been for some time.

  Mar 6, 2023
All dr. at this office are OK.

  Mar 6, 2023
Dr. Donnan is a very blunt communicator. It was off-putting at first but I now enjoy my visits with him.

  Mar 1, 2023
I'm unable to sign onto My Health despite my claims that I was answering all questions correctly.

  Feb 27, 2023
Came in expressing some stress over life transition, bp, however was nice and low. By the time I left, I was very stressed...I had ptsd fight or flight symptoms...haven't felt that kind of anxiety in years! He addressed what he thought was important...nothing positive at all. Keep it short...he did not listen and thought it appropriate to be completely insensitive ...he overstepped in his statements about my health. Left much worse than before and I cannot see him again...I need to find somebody who is somewhat collaborative rather than just checking off boxes and telling me what to do...rather than talking to me, listening, explaining etc

  Feb 22, 2023
Best primary doctor.

The doctor spent a good amount of time with me and was very thorough in a friendly manner.

  Oct 25, 2022
Dr. Donnan and staff are thorough and very good at communication. I especially appreciate that I can send a message to them on MyHealth in between or prior to an exam to list my questions and concerns, and I promptly receive one or more complete responses. I like that I was able to receive a vaccination and a blood test in the office without having to go elsewhere. I also like that Dr. Donnan does whole-person care in the office but has referred me to specialists when warranted.

  Oct 24, 2022
CMA was polite and efficient, I felt comfortable with Moreen. Dr. Donnan was friendly and professional, he treated me with respect. I felt confident he was interested in my well being. He set my mind at ease with rational information.

  Oct 20, 2022
My last visit was a follow up after an emergency event. Dr. Donnan addressed all aspects of my experience, including emotional repercussions and made me feel I was in safe hands. His medical assistant is also very calming and professional.

  Oct 20, 2022
Excellent. Legacy med group better hold on Dr Donnan and not lose yet another great communicator , medically knowledgeable and just friendly person . And , by the way this was my very first appointment with Dr. Donnan

  Oct 20, 2022
He ordered tests and care pertinent to my health that none of my prior PCPs cared about. For example, I had been a vegetarian and unknowingly low on VB12, and Dr. Donnan recommended VB12 test and supplement on my first visit. Dr. Donnan is also direct and proactive on LGBT's sexual health and made personalized health plan for me. Great doctor he is.

This provider is good. He takes as much time as allowed. He has also reduced the amount of prescriptions.

  Oct 4, 2022
Dr ,Donnan does not seem to listen when I talk about having a sleep test he wants me to take it makes me very uncomfortable I get anxiety I think I have some sort of PTSD based on prior surgical procedures and he went ahead and set one up for me anyway without my consent I just would rather he'd listen and we could reach a compromise which for me is after the next surgery not right now. Summing it up I'd say not a good listener
