Dr O'Donohue is very easy to talk to and he's a very good listener. He takes the time to explain things clearly.
I felt very reassured after my first appointment with Dr O'Donohue and his explanations along the way were helpful and easy to understand. He put me at ease straight away and I felt I was in the very best hands. I am sure that if I hadn't made the appointment with him my underlying condition would not have been diagnosed for ages, impacting my life and work. Dr O'Donohue was extremely thorough and after some blood tests and scans I discovered the issue was something completely different to that I had suspected. He gave me all results and explained them in detail plus even did a sketch to help me understand. He was skilful and sensitive with the examinations. I would not hesitate to recommend him as I immediately felt he took my condition very seriously - something I have not always found to be the case. The best health decision I have made1
