Dr. Donaldson’s Patient Shares Her Success Story

success-storyAt 19, Tarah Carr had it all. She recently married her high school sweetheart, Adam, a U.S. Army Green Beret, and gave birth to a beautiful healthy boy, Noah. By her own admission, she should have been happy. Instead, she felt very self-conscious. At 5’2, Carr weighed 162 pounds.

With her husband routinely traveling for work, she sunk into spiraling depression. She rarely left the house. It was time for a change. It was time for a mommy makeover. Using a workout video, she lost 49Ibs in 90 days dropping from a size 14 to 3. Her confidence sizzled, and yet she had come as far as she could on her own. It was time for the finishing touches and she called the office of Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson, a Columbus, Ohio plastic surgeon.

In her blog Tarah openly discusses why she flew from her home in Japan to Donaldson Plastic Surgery to get a breast augmentation with silicone implants, a mastopexy (breast lift) and an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). She notes that he publishes scholarly articles, completed prestigious fellowship programs, teaches medical students, serves as media consultant for top news programs, and even played college football. Tarah wanted the best possible surgeon and outcome, and she felt that selecting Dr. Donaldson was an easy choice.

Today, at 105Ibs, Tarah is a size 00, and is featured on numerous successful workout video series. Her newfound confidence and look has also led to magazine features and infomercials. She credits most of her success to hard work and a little help from her favorite plastic surgeon: Dr. Donaldson!

“This was a personal decision.” Tarah summarized, “ A cosmetic decision. A confidence decision. One of the best one’s I’ve ever made.”

Dr. Donaldson Named One Of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors

patients-choiceAs awarded by Patients’ Choice and based on feedback from satisfied clients, Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson recently received the great honor and distinction of being named one of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors. In the field of plastic surgery, this special recognition is a reflection of how patients felt about the quality of their care and the bedside manner with which they were approached. Other factors that are taken into account include follow-up care, appointment availability, courtesy of the office staff, and the amount of patient-doctor face time that is a part of the experience.

While many physicians often receive positive feedback from their patients, Dr. Donaldson, in his practice as a plastic surgeon, is among just 3% of the nearly 870,000 practicing doctors in the nation who have been awarded this special certification. The patients of Dr. Donaldson were very consistent in offering high praise for the personalized care that they received at his facility.

Patients’ Choice is an online resource where individuals can rate and comment on their favorite practitioners. Now, an icon that denotes the “Compassionate Doctor” distinction appears beside Dr. Donaldson’s name and listing as a plastic surgeon on the Patients’ Choice website.
