Information for Out of Town Patients

Patients from all over the United States and beyond have traveled to Columbus, Ohio to meet with Dr. Donaldson. In the past several years, he has seen men and women from Japan, Canada, England, California, New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Texas who have specifically sought his world-class training and experience. Patients enjoy personal attention from Dr. Donaldson and his staff with efficient access and transportation, luxury accommodations and state-of-the-art medical facilities.

Out-of-town patients typically forward medical information and digital photography in advance of an appointment. A detailed, in-person consultation is required prior to surgical intervention, and enough time should be planned for follow-up examination as well. Depending upon the selected procedures, it is possible to arrange for each of these steps to occur during the same trip.
