    I saw Dr O'Donohue due to a swelling being seen in my Esophagus in a CT scan. Throughout the entire process Dr O'Donohue has been absolutely fantastic, providing all the information needed at the appropriate time to put my mind at ease. I was also very impressed with Pam, who I have been in touch with many times throughout this process and she also made everything run smoothly. Thank you so much for all of the expertise and support.

    Dr O’Donohue is an excellent professional. He explained to me his rationale for undergoing the procedure in light of test results and provided me with a good description of what I should expect in it, view that eventually resembled reality in full. I am very grateful to Dr. O’Donohue for his professionalism and would not hesitate to recommend him to others seeking a good professional in this area.
