Dr O'Donohue has been treating my adult daughter for complex gastroenterological issues following a brain injury. My daughter also has Autism, learning difficulties and a very restrictive diet which adds to the complexity. My daughter is petrified of hospitals and is always very anxious during any hospital visits. Dr O'Donohue has been excellent throughout and has gained my daughter's trust (a big milestone). We are all very grateful for Dr O'Donohue taking my daughter under his wing and gaining her trust, for his reassuring manner, for his holistic approach to our daughter's diagnosis and treatment, for giving us the confidence (and evidence) to reduce and stop some of the medication we were led to believe my daughter would need for life, and for the improvements in my daughter's health and general well being. Thank you.
