Ratings for Dr. Jennifer H. Donnelly
I have been a patient of Dr. Donnelly's for about 14 years. Once I met her, I knew I would want her to some day deliver my children. Our first son was born early and she helped me through a forcep delivery - which frightened me - by keeping very calm and explaining everything she was doing. She was such a force of strength for me as my child remained in the NICU for almost one month. She has been so thorough and cautious. I recently had to have a hysterectomy. She was very helpful through my decision - always describing everything that would or could happen. My surgery was the best thing I could have done. My recovery was far easier than I expected and I now feel better than I ever have. She is professional, caring, intelligent and someone I would recommend to all women looking for the absolute best standard of care.
I was so scared to have an hysterectomy...after talking to Dr. Donnelly all was wonderful, she is supper helpful and understanding, she talked to me, she explained, she helped me understand. She is an awsome persone. I hope I can keep her as a doctor, even if I do not have an uterus anymore...hahahah...... She is the VERY BEST!!!
I have been going to Dr. Donnelly for almost ten years. She did all of my prenatal and post natal care a year ago, with my first child and is doing prenatal now with my second. I was high risk for preeclampsia and she watched me like a hawk. She is a very cautious and precautionary doctor. If something has the potential of going wrong, she is going to always be one step ahead. I have heard terrible stories of preeclamptic pregnancies and I experienced none of that, due to Dr. Donnelly's diligence towards my health. I am surrounded by friends also having children and after hearing their stories, I have no doubt she is by far the best OBGYN out there. I also have and some unusual issue, unrelated to pregnancies and she always took me seriously, offered up great advice and then referred me to a type of specialist I did not even know existed. Definitely one of the smartest doctors I have ever had and I would never use anyone else.
I have been going to Dr Donnelly for a number of years and continue to find her to always be caring, compassionate and professional. She is extremely thorough and conservative in her approach if she feels that something might be wrong, and as a woman in my late 50's I deeply appreciate that. She does not waste time during exam time, but she is always very friendly, and if I have questions, she takes time to answer questions completely without ever making me feel rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Donnelly.
I was misdiagnosed at every occasion during my pregnancy. Dr. Donnelly kept insisting I had pre-eclampsia symptoms and all the while it was a gall stone. She said our baby was measuring large, insisted on a C-section 3 weeks before the due date - all to deliver a typical 8 lb baby. Since she delivered so early, breast feeding was a struggle. I would not recommend this dr. or this practice.
I have been a patient of Dr. Donnelly's for many years, when I decided to have a baby. She was fantastic throughout the whole pregnancy and was less then thrilled to find out how the on-call doctor handled my delivery. Dr. Donnelly is definitely a "momma bear" to her patients and stays one step ahead of any issues that might occur. I have a healthy 8 month old and am in good shape myself, all due to the precautions she took during my pregnancy. I showed all but one sign of preeclampsia and ended up with HELLP syndrome. I have since read other womens' experiences with these health issues, who had different doctors and their experiences were mistreated and the outcome was much worse then mine. If you want a doctor who looks to prevention and not just 'clean up', then I would use Dr. Donnelly.
I have been a patient of Dr. Donnelly's for 7 years. She is compassionate and smart. She picked me up as a patient at 30 weeks, when I wanted to change doctors due to location. I ended up having an abruption and she was right there by my side ready for whatever laid ahead. She knows her job and is great at it. And I am happy to say she will be delivering my third child in October. Her nurse is amazing too. She is always quick to call her pts back. And always has a smile on her face. I couldn't imagine seeing another doctor. She is fantastic.
I would NOT recommend Dr. Jennifer Donnelly to anyone. She was very nonchalent,unconcerned, and not passionate about her position as a OB>GYN DR. I had a stillborn birth she was not supportive nor did she montior my baby like she should have.Only one phone call and one hospital visit. She didnt call me back for any of me up to dates testings that were done in the office. She needs to find another occupation because ob'gyn and caring for mothers having babies is not what she should be doing as a job.
Patients are an inconvenience, not treated as customers. Would never recommend going to and OB on this practice based upon the amount of time you have to deal with the staff and how rude they all are. Having a baby is a joyous time and they contribute nothing to this.
I have been a patient of Dr. Donnelly for many years-I now live in Texas and fly home for my appts! Dr. Donnelly is an amazing doctor and has always made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She takes time to answer my questions and never rushes our appointments. She is smart and up to date on current procedures in her field. She performed my hysterectomy and has seen me through some troubling medical times. I totally trust her and have recommended her to my friends and family members. When making decisions on the hysterectomy I had options and Dr. Donnelly included my in the decisions that were to be made. I really felt involved in the process and for me that was priceless! I love being her patient and being on the receiving end of her care!
