Dr. Donnan is the best pcp I have ever seen. His staff is beyond exceptional, as well. I have recommended him to my husband & other people.I finally feel safe & monitored by my doctor. He knows exactly what's going on with me & what to be concerned about.

  Sep 22, 2023
The reality of a medical practice today is that providers are compelled to see as many patients as possible and therefore can only see any patient only for so long. However, really good doctor-patient relationships, really good diagnostic results, and really good patient health outcomes from having the time to get to know patients by more than their chart results. I have had doctor-patient relationships prior to the advent of HMOs in the 90's, and the practice of medicine today does a disservice to both patients and doctors.

  Sep 21, 2023
