This was first appointment; patient and mother were there for interview, but father wished to hear the summary and plans for care. Dr. was agreeable to including father, though it prolonged time of visit. Dr. made favorable impression on family, and was sympathetic with our needs.


I always refer to *Dr. O'Donovan when asked or I hear someone is looking for a great doctor that cares about the patient!


I believe the doctor is very good, but it seems we spend more time with his associates/interns than with him. Maybe after you reach a certain level, that is the way it works.


I love Baptist Hospital - Long term patient - No real impressed with this particular doctor. #7. He didn't talk much.


He was helpful and attentive to any questions also with suggestions to keep me regulated,


I believe in *Dr. O'Donovan 100% I recommend him & Wake Forest often. If it wasn't for him I would probably be dead now.


I was not particularly impressed with this doctor. Would prefer to see someone else on her next visit.


All of the above happen with one question I asked! I have and will continue to send family, friends and anyone who asks for a referral to Dr. ODONOVAN. He is the best.
