Dr. Donovan and his front office staff are such a pleasure to deal with. I was running a few minutes late because of traffic but when I got there they took me right into a room and Dr. Donovan came in right after that to treat me.

BestDoc Ever! He helps me tremendously William K
Went to numerous doctors who couldn't figure out how to fix my toe problem. On the first visit, Dr. Donovan accurately diagnosed and treated my problem. There was very minimal pain. Within two days I didn't even realize that I had had surgery. AMAZING!

Everything was quick, no wait time. Knew exactly what my problem was, explained what he was going to perform and went straight to the point.

The visit was excellent, explanation of my problem , treatment and plan, recommendation and choices. All in one short visit. I was happy. Thank you Dr. Donovan.
Wonderful podiatrist. Gives a very thorough exam and explains clearly what needs to be done to rectify any problems. Efficient check-in procedure. The doctor personally meets you in the waiting room and brings you back into the office. Personable and very kind. Would recommend him highly!

Very good knew what was wrong right away
Very good doctor.Perfect service.
Very efficient. Wish my primary care doctor worked this way. I was in and out
Fast and efficient doctor - very happy with my 1st appointment. In 20 min we were done with the foot exam, custom fitted pad/band for everyday wear, two X-rays, steroid shot and all the discussions about my Morton's neuroma. Highly recommended!
First visit... Easy-going, knowledgeable, explained things in a way that I could understand and made me understand at least a part of my foot/ankle problem in general. Easy to talk to, spends as much time as needed. I've been to a number of the "big city" docs for opinions, second opinions, and third opinions for my issue, but my experience today makes me feel that I don't have to go any further. So far, he's a keeper! My initial experience confirms that I made the best choice in a long time. Have to see how it goes after test results, dx, and treatment options, and then I'll know more. For now, he's a keeper :>)
Dr. Donovan was great! I never feel comfortable at appointments, but he was very good at small talk and distracting me from the work he was doing on my toe. I left feeling like I was in great hands. Two weeks later, toe healed and he gets a stamp of approval. Highly recommend!
Very professional. Nice personality.
He was extremely knowledgeable and extremely thorough. He spent plenty of time with me, both questioning me and hearing my concerns.
Professional yet friendly. Listened to me and did not use doctor speak to explain my options. I highly recommend him
Great bedside manner, told me what was wvrong, and plan to fix. Great doc!

Dr Donovan was excellent. I definitely would recommend him. Great bedside manner and care.
He was very attentive and he actually brought me to exam room we talked and joked, but he took care of my reason for seeing him along with other questions not related to the issue i was there for. I referred him to my best friend who is currently looking for a Podiatrist.
Excellent visit! Dr Donovan is professional, personable and is highly recommended.
Very responsive to questions, knowledgeable. High comfort level.
