Credit for discovery of rare neurological condition

Due to change in company health benefits, I had to locate a new gynecologist for annual exams in 2010. I located Dr. Donley and arranged for my annual checkup. Unlike other doctors, she met with me in her office to discuss my history and concerns before moving me to another room for the check up. I shared some symptoms and she recommended I see a neurologist. I followed her recommendation and referral to a neurologist at Eisenhower. Because she listened to me (previous doctors diagnosed stress disorder), I was diagnosed with a rare arteriovenous malformation on the left temporal lobe. I underwent neurosurgery to remove the AVM. She saved my life by listening to me and making the right decision to refer me to another doctor for further diagnosis. Dr. Donley remains my doctor after 4 years of care. She is great!

Do not leave your charge card number on file

There is nothing special about this doctor. The receptionist is cold and condescending. You have to leave your charge card number with them and months later you are charged for services you were unaware of. They also bill incorrectly so you are charged for services that are covered. Read everything, sign nothing and don't leave your card number. Not a wise choice for women using Medicare.

Karen Donley is a great doctor and she definitely showed the compassion that everyone wants in a doctor. She was also educated at Stanford which is quite the achievement. However, I wouldn't schedule for another visit. I don't care much for the nurses working there alongside the doctor.

Extremely professional office. The doctor sits down and talks with me first. They do not double schedule patients. Each person gets full attention.

Professional & Respectful

I have had very good experiences with Dr. Donley. She never rushes during our appointment and the wait time is minimal. Her appointment person/receptionist is always very nice and patient. Her PA could be a little more friendly when doing your BP and initial intake, but otherwise, an overall very good environment.
