From the harbors of Maine to the halls of Harvard, bringing you 27 years of medicine from the heart with scientific precision


“Dr. Donahue is the doctor of whom everyone dreams. At Harvard he brought his experience and inimitable style as a generalist doctor for a small community to an urban university. He comes in to each consultation ready for active engagement, ears and eyes wide open, giving a lot even as he takes everything in. Was Dr. Donahue ever stymied by a set of symptoms? Never! He had ready access not only to his deep professional experience, but also to new research. Dr. Donahue took the time, he listened, he heard what should be understood.In sum, Dr. Donahue is personally delightful, professionally accomplished, and a good, wise listener. We are very sorry indeed to see him leave his service at Harvard University.”

“Dr. Donahue became my doc within five minutes of meeting him. My father was a doc, an internist, which makes me super skeptical of MDs. I turn 65 today and so finding a regular doctor here in Boston was becoming urgent although I’m in excellent health. Dr. Donahue and his staff were so helpful and he was so knowledgeable about the bronchitis I came in with that I signed up as a regular patient that day. I consider myself luckier than a starving horse who stumbled upon a trove of fresh chestnuts and alfalfa hay. I mean Dr. Donahue was the only doc on an island off the coast of Maine for nigh on ten years. Then he spent time with Harvard Med School and Harvard student health services. And he’s still relatively young. so he’s had firsthand experience with healthcare from birth to death and everything in between. Honestly, it does not get better.”

“Dr. Donahue and the team from Personal Health MD provided extraordinary care to my Aunt during the last months of her very long life. Dr. Donahue carefully and constantly managed her complex drug regime to assure that she had maximum benefit and minimum side effect. He not only focused on her physical issues but also on the social and psychological aspects of my Aunt’s health. He and my Aunt developed a wonderful trusting relationship during his many visits to her, and she was able to remain comfortably at home and engaged in her daily life right up until she passed. As a family caregiver struggling to deal with the complexity of my Aunt’s end of life challenges, I found enormous comfort in knowing that Dr. Donahue could always be reached, that he routinely offered good counsel, and that, when necessary, he would come on short notice to assess and improve my Aunt’s condition. I recommend the entire team enthusiastically and without reservation.”

“Dr. Donahue is the Marcus Wellby of this generation. He’s warm and empathetic, but very astute and insightful. He seems to ask all the right questions and really listen to the answers. He got to the heart of some of my 16-year-old daughter’s issues right away and made some excellent suggestions for treatment that have really helped her feel better all around.”
