Ratings for Dr. Lois Donovan
Dr Donovan diagnosed me with Cushings disease in 2008. She is a strong patient advocate, follow up is amazing, she is compassionate and a matter of fact. I have total confidence in her abilities and judgement. Although I have a cure she still follows up once a year with me.
Absolutely amazing doctor. She has followed me with my diabetes since 2004, she helped through two miscarriages and the birth of my amazing son (which I owe a lot to her). She helped me get the OB/GYN to understand that there was something seriously wrong when I was 36 weeks and sped up the delivery of my son. She was the doctor on call the whole time I was on the maternity ward and provided the best care I have ever had. Very blunt but she gets results.
Dr. Donovan is an extremely knowledgeable, caring, thorough, and dedicated Endocrinologist who has treated me for type 1 diabetes since 1993. She provides patient centered care that enables her patients to become experts in managing their own diabetes day-to-day which results in excellent health outcomes.
I can't say enough good things about Dr Donovan either. She's an excellent Dr, to the point, and made sure I had all the info and instructions on how to take care of myself. I was diagnosed with Addison's Fall 2010 and I feel so blessed that she is my Dr :)
Have seen this doctor for years through the diabetes and pregnancy clinic at the Foothills. Can't say enough good things about her and the amazing staff. I really feel the birth of my healthy and beautiful son (as a type 1 diabetic of 15 years) is in big part due to the excellent care I recieved.
10 months after first seeing her for hyperthyroidism and eventually treatment with radioactive iodine, I am completely cured of my condition (Graves Disease) and have a normal healthy lifestyle again. Thruout the entire time I was treated by her she always contacted me personally within 48 hours after each follow up blood test, and either her or her staff were always available if I had to contact their office to discuss something. Her direct and informative manner is what I want in a physician, I am not looking for someone to hold my hand and tell me everything will be allright, but to plainly explain the cause and effect of the condition and treatments, in a manner that is easily understood and straight forward. Lois delivers on all counts. She is one of the best doctors I have ever seen.
