Dr. Donnelly took plenty of time to answer my questions. The information she gave me was a lot for me to handle emotionally. I needed to hear it all again because as it sank in I kind of panicked. Dr. Donnelly was so kind and just sat right down and talked with me. I know she was busy- but I felt like the only patient that mattered right then. I highly recommend Dr. Donnelly.

Really appreciate the time and thorough review of everything! If I had one suggestion, I did get some freezes on top of scalp - but forgot to ask what to expect would happen. Explaining potential outcomes of procedure would be helpful, so know what to expect and what to look for if something goes wrong. Otherwise, incredible knowledge about all problems related to dermatology and thorough explanations. Only reason to not give a 10 on recommendations is that Dr Donnelly is already too popular. Appointments need to be many months in advance now.

Since my last dermatological exam was 30 years ago, I didn't quite know what to expect. It was a pleasant experience from check in to exit, and put my mind at ease with regard to my skin's condition.

Dr. Donnelly is absolutely wonderful in every way - professionally and socially. She takes such a personal interest and is always so helpful in answering my questions and fully explaining all options to address any conditions. The lady at check-in could be more personable. Her response to my, "Hello" - was a quite curt, "do you have an appointment?" It took her a while to find my appointment in the system. Nothing major to point out, just not the warm and welcoming demeanor of the medical team.

The practice was clean and the staff was very friendly! I did have to wait about 30 minutes passed my appointment time to be seen by my doctor. I understand that she was probably held up in another room.
