Patient Testimonials

I had a heavy object fall on my right big toe resulting in a spiral fracture. My family physician, Dr. Kurt Rosenkrans, referred me to Dr. Carol Donahue. After Dr. Donahue removed my toe nail, she recognized & informed me of other issues in my leg. Dr. Donahue provided me with excellent care & if it wasn't for her attention to detail, I would not have been aware of the vascular problem I had or the solution for it. I highly recommend Dr. Donahue. Very professional!

5 star review: She is the absolute best!

- Dr. Donahue's Patient

I was certainly pleased and satisfied. Dr. Donahue was "right on top of things." I felt that she listened, understood, gave me good advice, and guided me in the right direction. I received a shot in my foot (I was dreading this) and she reassured me and explained her approach. Everything was easy, Not painful, and just fine. Thank you, Dr. Donahue!
