I want to make it known that Dr.Donaldson was much on top of my situation which turned out to be an urgent case!

I had no idea that the pain I was experiencing was due to my spinal cord being squeezed. With one visit, he confirmed the findings in an MRI and set an appointment to speak in depth of what surgery would be needed. But little did I know he would have to go to bat for me twice with my insurance company to assure that they would allow him to do what was obviously needed and cover my expenses. I am very grateful for his expertise and that I chose him as my surgeon. Therefore I have asked him to also do my lower lumbar surgery in the summer.
