"Ever go to the gastroenterology feeling lost, painful, embarrassed? Well let me tell you these folks are the best! They made me feel very comfortable right off! Terrific place place to end up when you need to go."
"Wonderful. Staff awsome. They care about you."
"Happy with Mr Donner work"
"Fast easy service. Best oil change I've ever had. Seriously, the staff was great. The front desk was friendly and after taking down my information we had a conversation about my dog and their's. The doctor introduced himself gave me a quick briefing and went to work. The anesthesiologist introduced himself, told me what he was giving me and said to think of something nice and I was asleep. I woke up feeling rested and ready to go home. Back in 10 years."
"Dr. Donner is knowledgeable, straightforward, and seriously intent on addressing his patients' needs. I also needed a referral and he took care of business quickly."
"Dr Donner is always professional, organized and takes time to explain what to expect and answer any questions I have. After the procedure he reviews his findings and again, answers any questions I have. He and his staff give you a 5 star experience."
"Got in to see Dr quickly and everyone was very pleasant"
"Everyone was great and professional, and the actual colonoscopy was a breeze!"
"Did a great job explained everything to me"
"I showed up late to my appointment and they understood it was just a mix up. They still got me in and got it done. I am grateful that they are so dedicated and a group of very good and hard working professionals. Thanks for being so kind to me and my wife.☺"
"Dr. Donner is obviously very skilled at what he does and I can highly recommend him based on my experience. The only criticism I would have, and it’s a mild one, is that he seems very rushed moving between patients, but they that may be less about him than the fact that the clinic is extremely busy and there’s not a lot of time for chat. The nursing staff, however, were very attentive and had great bedside manner. Overall experience was very positive."
"Great care. Highly recommended."
"The waiting area calm, peaceful and my wait time was very short which I appreciated. The appointment was to the point which I appreciated."
"I arrived on time, was signed in and colllected promptly, and waited for the M D less than 5 minutes. He had reviewed my chart and situation, listened to a brief history noting important points and discussed his recommendation, the possibility that the insurance might not approve the Rx and the back up alternative if that was the case. We arranged a way to communicate via the portal and he asked for a fu appt to be scheduled. Before leaving he reminded me that if I did not regain the lost weight he would have to do a colonoscopy! So a lot of info and appropriate action in about 15 minutes I give it an A+"
"My visit with Dr Donner was great! Simply excellent. I was very happy how he listen and decided the best way to continue to help me with my health problem. He has been excellent taking care of me for years and I am very comfortable seeing him. Taking his advise and direction on how to best take care of me. He is very professional, knowable and skilled in medicine examination procedures. I trust him and he and his staff make me feel like a part of the family when I visit his office. I'd highly recommend him to be anyone doctor."
"Dr. Donner and his team are amazing at making sure you are safe and healthy with all of the information and resources available for you. They also provide you with great care I will recommend them to anyone. I am satisfied that I have them as part of my health care team. Thanks for the teams hard work"
"Dr. Donner and his staff were very kind and professional. There were no unanticipated delays or issues with the appointment. I showed up early, but that was no problem as the office was open very early and the waiting room was comfortable. The nursing staff was very kind and helpful. Although this wasn't my first rodeo (so to speak) at Dr. Donner's office, I was a bit nervous and they put me at ease. I got my test results promptly afterward. I would highly recommend Washington Gastroenterology!"
"A pleasant experience despite the reason for the visit…nice office setting and pleasant, competent staff. Dr. Donner will tell it like it is; he did for me, but that’s what doctors are for, isn’t it?"
"Dr. Connor and his staff took great care of me. My procedure went smoothly, but I had a bad reaction to the sedatives and had trouble in recovery. The staff took great care of me and my wife as she tried to help me recover. Thank you to everyone there for taking care of me!"
"I was happy with the results, however there was very little discussion about my health and how to go forward."
"Great experience, very professional. Totally recommended."

"Exceptional staff and experience!"
"Dr. Donner and his team were very professional and knowledgeable about their work"
"First appt was a video visit and there was no time wasted on small talk. We got down to business right away. Dr. Donner was very friendly and informative. I felt very comfortable talking about very uncomfortable and private issues right away and some of these things I was a little shy about telling to my PCP. I've already recommended him to someone I know since then. 😊"
"Very professional, courteous service was provided by Dr. Donner and his staff! Highly recommended!"

"I’ve been a patient of Dr Donner for many years and have been impressed with his professionalism and knowledge. He’s very personable and has taken good care of me and helping me manage my illness. I highly recommend him."
"My procedure went very well, I was at ease, and informed of my outcome. All very professional, but noway ever feeling like just another number. Thanks to all for your great care."
"I was so sick and thin. Then I was referred to WAGI with Dr Charles Donner. He has changed my life for the best. I had many issued which, after proper and thorough testing and scans, have been abated by Dr Donner and his abilities to discern the problem. Very intelligent, kind and understanding."
"Friendly, efficient staff. New prep procedures esp splitting the prep drinking was easier. As usual the actual procedure went smoothly."
"Good communication via text, email and phone call; knew what to expect, very clean from waiting room to recovery room. Doctor and staff friendly and knowledgable, all the things you are looking for in a medical clinic."
"Great Experience. Clean facility and Professional Staff"
"From the moment I was greeted at the door until I left, I was treated with the utmost respect, compassion and kindness by everyone I encountered. The Nurse who set up my IV was the best I've had in my lifetime. I barely felt anything. The center was immaculantely clean with staff making sure to clean every touch surface after a patient encounter. I would highly recommend Dr. Donner and the Endoscopy Center. He had been my doctor for over nine years and has been compassionate, caring. He always takes time to inform and educate me."
"Prior to, and after walking into WAGI, I felt valued as a person. The staff was friendly and informative at each step. From the front office, to the moment I entered the procedure room I was greeted by the various nurses and staff in a friendly, positive manner and they picked up on my relaxed nature and each staff worked at elevating my mood. The lead staff member in the procedure room was amazing and gave me confidence that I was in a safe place, among “friends”. Dr. Donner’s demeanor was, as well, one that encouraged confidence. The clinic was spotless and I could detect no odors. There were NO “hospital” smells nor any bad odors. it was as though the place had never been used. And, even though there was a patient leaving as I arrived and another patient in a bed with adjacent area I had the confidence of cleanliness and privacy. The clinic was efficiently run and at no time did I feel “exposed” nor embarrassed or uncomfortable. Oh, and the prep process was clearly explained, the solution was very palatable, and the split 50%/50% dosing was amazingly easy. This was my 4th colonoscopy over the years, and finally, I will no longer dread the long black tube. Kudos to the entire staff and thanks for respecting me as a person, and thanks to all the staff for transforming one of the more unpopular and dreaded experiences in life into an experience of which I will have the most positive memories. Well done!"
"Good instructions and support. Since I declined sedative, I got immediate feedback after the procedure. Staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional."
"Great care with a nice and patient friendly attitude."
"Very caring and professional!"
"Just completed my second adventure with a colonoscopy at Washington GI (The Waldron Center) with Dr Donner and staff and have to say while I don't exactly look forward to my next one in 5 yrs I certainly don't, in any way, dread it either. Frankly the most painful part was watching the video they send multiple messages to watch about "how to make the prep easier". I got to the point I wanted to open my own vein. The presenter (a GI doc from Dartmouth) was condescending and irritating and never actually got around to any useful information. The information and instruction that comes with your prep kit and the center are far superior and given how wonderful the staff is there I am quite sure a simple phone call to them would get you an answer to any concerns. The Waldron center is exceptionally comfortable for both patient and the 'driver' waiting for you. The theme is classic films and they have a mini theater with films running and their pre-op rooms have old movie themes. Both times I was started out in the "Sound of Music" room. The mural on the wall is Julie Andrews , arms spread in the field of grass where she is singing "The hills are alive with the sound of music". Am I the only one that finds this hysterically funny given I was there for a colonoscopy and my colon would be filled with air by the end of the procedure and indeed the hills would be alive with the sound of music? Every single member of the staff was warm, welcoming and I felt very competent (As an RN I can be pretty critical of less than excellent care and I know the difference between fluff and actual care). So, overall SIX stars from me!"
"Dr. Donner's team is great. I am a lucky guy to have been referred to him!"
"Having a colonoscopy isn't anyone's idea of fun but Dr. Donner and his team did a wonderful job and made me feel very comfortable. I definitely recommend!"
"Dr. Donner is amazing and treated me very well. He warned me to check what my insurance would cover before any procedure. He can’t control insurance costs. I think it is awful that he has bad reviews because of horrible insurance companies. He is a great doctor and I would recommend him to anyone!"
"This was my third visit to this facility. As with the previous two visits this experience was just fine. From start to finish I have no complaints. The nurse that did my pre-procedure was quite pleasant and explained everything I needed to know. Although, I do not remember the names of the medical persons in the procedure room , I do remember that they were all very efficient and explained all things related to my procedure. They were not only quite professional but very caring to my needs. I do remember the name of my recovery nurse. Her name was Samantha.......what an awesome person. Caring ,compassionate and such a sweet individual. Thank You to all that took care of me during my procedure And a big Thank You to Samantha 😀 And , of course Thank You Dr. Donner."
