    How was your appointment with Dr. Donaldson III?

    Jul 12, 2021
    Dr. Donaldson performed spinal surgery back a few years ago and I have been in great shape ever since. Going over 10 miles per day running and walking and no problems. I have highly recommended him to a number of friends who have been very successful with him also.
