When I was using opiates I hated myself, I was lying to people I love, I risked my job everyday, & I was still living at my parents house as an adult because I was spending most of my money on pills. Dr. Donato's program has completely changed my life for the better. I have been seeing her for a couple of years now and she is the best doctor to have in your corner when fighting addiction! She will work with you and give you tips to make sure you are paying as little out of pocket as possible whether you are insured or uninsured. When you see her you are getting HER, a board certified, highly regarded neurologist, and not her nurse or assistants . She even helped me get through anxiety, depression, and a vitamin D imbalance which were not even reasons I was seeing her. She takes the time to talk to you and I never feel rushed. I explained to her that I wanted to taper slowly and that is what we are doing. Dr Donato knows her stuff, she is KIND but she has measures in place to make sure you are being honest in your treatment so DONT try to lie to her. If you stay clean, take your meds exactly as prescribed and realize that her time is valuable and show up to your appointments you will reach your goal which for me was just feeling NORMAL. I have a great job, a great relationship, and friendships, I am happy, & I can financially provide for myself. All of these things I was at risk of losing when I was using. It definitely feels good to be an honest, sober and employed, productive member of society, & I could not have done that on my own. - Anonymous 2015 December
I have been a patient of hers for a while now and my life has completely turned around ever since. She actually cares and makes sure that you are following the treatment plan. I have been 100% sober since the first day I became her patient. In my opinion, I don't see how she could ever have a bad review. If it's a bad review then it's probably an angry patient that got kicked out because they were still using. And as far as her not tapering patients' meds, that is a lie!!! I started at 16mg and I'm down to 4mg now. She does it slow. THE WAY ITS SUPPOSE TO BE DONE. I would recommend Dr Donato to anyone. She has changed my life. -Anonymous 2015 December
Dr. Donato is wonderful. She is caring, loving, and supportive of all her patients. She is am amazing physician who listens and responds. I feel like she is always going the extra mile for me and other patients. I am beyond impressed with my experience at her office. I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind she was to me. She is very knowledgeable and makes me feel comfortable throughout my appointment. I would highly recommend her! All my experience with Dr. Donato have always been positive. She is hands-down the best doctor i have seen...her demeanor and bed-side manner is calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal. I am grateful to have found her! - Anonymous 2015 December
