Dr Donovan is absolutely the best eye doctor I've ever had. Energetic, caring, talks you thru the whole process of cataract surgery. I'm very excited to have the surgery, & be in his care. His scheduler Priscilla is just as sweet & caring. From check-in, thru the whole process, everyone was all top notch. Your office is a great place to work, it shows in each & everyone.
