As a dermatologist I get to combine a deep understanding of immunology, physiology, anatomy and beauty, to diagnose and cure everything from skin cancer to acne to internal diseases, and I have the privilege of helping people achieve and maintain their skin's health and beauty for life.

Dr. Donnelly, is very thorough, gives you her full attention and takes her time. I have a previous history of skin cancer, so I am very selective in the dermatologist I choose. I previously went to Dr. Shideler who retired and Dr. Abigail Donnelly was working there at the time and did my head to toe check one time and I was very impressed with her. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an experienced, caring dermatologist.
