Specialties

Dr. Paul B Donovan has the following 4 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Rude and Unprofessional

Stay completely away from this doctor. He is downright rude and very unprofessional. I called him out on it and he didn't even have the balls to even say nothing to me but has his equally nasty secretary curse me out and then hang up the phone on me. Never again will I ever deal with this practice.

Dr Donovan is very knowledgeable, caring, and available when you need advice or a hospital visit, often at times I'm sure were very inconvenient to him.. He collaborates with other experts without problems. Some might find his personality quirky at times, but he can also be very charming ,witty, and interesting. And he does answer your questions. Dr Donovan is very smart and cares-features I want in a doctor. They don't have to be my best new bud. The tech and nursing staff were warm, friendly, competent .The office staff was helpful with appointments or with changes in schedules. .

Dr. Donovan has been described by some as rude or worse. My experience with him is exactly the opposite. I love him! I think he is amazing. He is straightforward, helpful, and extremely good at his job. And to top it off, his staff is wonderful too. No one sees an oncologist for fun. Tragic, potentially terminal conditions cause us to need one. So what matters to me is how good is he or she at oncology. Dr. Donovan is the best. Next, I care about practical things like wait times and appointments. Again, Dr. Donovan is great. And finally, how well does my oncologist explain things to me. Dr. Donovan made sure my wife and I understood everything. He and his staff patiently answered questions. They are awesome! Lastly, is bedside manner. Here is where my opinion differs from some others. To me, he is personable and terrific. I love the guy. I can't say enough good about him.

Not out for the patient, just almighty dollar

I've had a few family members who over the years have become terminally ill. Unfortunately Donovan is the "hospital's" Doctor and usually sees the patient right away. He is very cold and does not show compassion when giving the diagnosis, hope or not. He told me in regard to my mother, "she's dying, get over it". Then another close family member went into the hospital and it was a matter of a week or two she had remaining. She went into a coma and THEN is when he decided to give her Chemo. She ballooned up like a hot air balloon, we were afraid to touch her. That was so not needed. We could have given her the dignity of passing away without that horrendous pain he put her and us through. Would never, ever, recommend this man and the hospital should really re-evaluate his services. He's just out for the money
