We travel 3 hours to see *Dr. Donofrio and would honestly travel again. He's the most thorough & caring patient advocate & has given us the best care we could ask for. He explains in detail in detail & ensure we understand.

Best experience ever with a doctor. Very good at listening and explaining, not in a rush. Very knowledgeable and compassionate. I felt like a person, not just data.

Took his time and checked me out very well. Even though I did not have drop foot that day or days before arriving, he still checked me & asked me several questions and done a thorough check up.
