After 20 plus years dealing with a chronic injury and mistreated by every practitioner, I was finally listened to and sent to see Patrick. From day 1 everything was different. He shared that there would be no bandaid work and gave me assignments to take home. Each week my progress was measured and new exercises for strengthening were added. Patrick is a great listener and is the first person to ever invest in helping me to heal and grow stronger. There was no quick fix, no dry needling, no tens unit, no injections, no one making me feel like a number and on to their next patient. This is 1:1 therapy with a plan set in motion to improve. I would 100% recommend seeing him if you wish to overcome injuries. Even chronic injuries can improve with the right practitioner. Thank you with all my heart for giving me a new path to recovery and a new start on a healthy body for many many years to come. You have really made a difference.kelli aJune 5, 2021

Dr. Donovan listened closely and was highly focused in understanding my sports related injuries. He put a lot of effort into designing exercises that are helping me to return to full activity. I’m glad I went to see him and wish I had gone sooner.lisa dejohnMay 6, 2021
Patrick has been incredibly helpful, patient and skilled in getting my back pain under control. I now feel I have a full toolbox of techniques to use to keep my body strong and out of pain. He created a well thought-out and individualized treatment plan for my specific situation. At each appointment, Patrick worked one on one with me in a very focused and professional manner while at the same time creating a fun and relaxed environment. I highly recommend Patrick for PT care.Cardamom DesignsMay 5, 2021
Dr. Donovan is fantastic. Excellent 1:1 attention, and gave me a customized exercise program that has helped with mobility and pain after surgery. Would absolutely recommend to others!Andrew WernerFebruary 4, 2021
My doctor recommended Dr. Donovan for physical therapy. From the first meeting, Dr. Donovan patiently and carefully listened to my issues as well as my interests (yoga, golf, tennis) to design a movement-based program to address my needs. Taking the time to educate me about my injury, he ensured that the exercise regimen not only strengthened my weaker muscles but also helped improve my everyday day movement patterns. I highly recommend Dr. Donovan if you seek an incredibly knowledgable, personable, and empathetic listener who offers long-term solutions.Sheri LagomarsinoJanuary 29, 2021
I had a very successful set of visits with Dr Patrick and once I learned how to correct my bad habits my body began to respond right away. The pain in my lower back subsided and the muscles aches disappeared. Instead of feeling like an aging old lady I now feel like I can be a healthy adult.Gwen Smith-EhrlichJanuary 19, 2021
Patrick worked with me for about 8 months to get me back to"working order". He did well by mw - pushed but not too hard and respected my feeling when i said "I don't think so"

I ended up in the hospital with 'Avocado Hand' (you know the millennials who love avocados, yeah thats me) and had no mobility in my hand for weeks.
I went to see Dr. Patrick Donovan at Heather Lane Physical Therapy and I now have full mobility in my left hand after weeks of PT. I'm so lucky to have found and worked with Dr. Pat as now I'm getting the feeling back in my hand and soon enough my left hand will be back to normal with complete feeling -- almost better than pre-avocado hand! I wouldn't be where I am today without Dr. Pat Literally, I can now type, work with my hands, and enjoy throwing pottery on the wheel.
I highly recommend Heather Lane PT for all your physical therapy needs and especially those who end up with avocado hand.Shea Elise MichalsOctober 15, 2020
Dr. Pat Donovan is an excellent Physical Therapist. He has helped me with a variety of different needs from sports injury rehab to acute low back pain due to past injury and current re-injury, to helping improve my athletic performance based on various musculoskeletal challenges. He is professional, knowledgeable, intuitive and proactive in his approach and practice. As an athlete and someone who has healed from several injuries and surgeries, I place him among the most skilled and effective physical therapists I've worked with. ~A.

I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give for Heather Lane Physical Therapy. Dr. Patrick Donovan is a pro! I had a tear 2 sprain on my ankle in multiple locations when I started PT. I am a runner and I was concerned I would not be able to get back to my normal running routine and have chronic issues from the tear.
Dr. Donovan on the first visit diagnosed the problem immediately and gave me simple, yet effective exercises to strengthen the ankle every week.The best part is he took time to really understand the issues and gave me a program that had me running and almost back to normal in 5-6 weeks. He takes the time to explain where you are in your recovery and helps you push yourself just enough to see results but not go backwards in your progress. I am sure if I had not gone to physical therapy here I would still be having ongoing issues with my ankle. I am so thankful to be back to normal and have Heather Lane to thank!mary rossettiDecember 22, 2019

I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Patrick Donovan by my orthopedic physician. I was suffering with significant upper back pain that radiated into my right arm and hand. Patrick diagnosed the root causes of my pain and provided me tailored exercises to strengthen various muscle groups and improve my posture – both of which are helping me return to an active lifestyle. He did this over several months and has modified my exercises as I improved. Among his strengths are that he has excellent diagnostic skills, is a good listener and that he thoughtfully explains the situation and solution in terms that I can easily understand.
I am in my mid-sixties and have worked with many Physical Therapists over the years. Patrick is among the very best in his field and I would highly recommend him. I am thankful for his care and treatments.Dave HullAugust 18, 2019

Dr. Donovan is an amazing resource for the Denver area. I do no think that I would have recovered as fast or as completely without his care. I would recommend him without reservation and with great enthusiasm.Gregory KeoghDecember 17, 2018
Pat is an excellent PT and helped me over come chronic back pain. He provided me great education and great exercises. I am back to living a healthier and stronger life.
Heather Lane PT was not my first PT experience. I have been to two other PTs who were good but not great. If you are considering Heather Lane, I highly recommend it.Daniel WrzosekAugust 25, 2018

Outstanding! Dr. Donovan corrected my walking and hip pain over the course of a few weeks of visits. His exercises and expertise allowed me to work up to hiking. Now I have an exercise program that keeps me out of his office!Patrick McGrathFebruary 27, 2018
Dr. Donovan was very attentive and helped me with pain in my back and hips. He was personal and easy to talk to about treatments and ways to improve my health and recovery. He did not pass me off to an assistant or student as has happened in other places. I felt like Dr. Donovan cared about making me better so I could get back to skiing.Peter BrutonFebruary 27, 2018
I never knew my foot issue could be related to my knee and hip. He connected the different joints and made it easy for me to understand. I can now run without pain and I have Dr. Donovan to thank.
Thanks Dr. Dono for getting me back on my feet!skyler bartonFebruary 27, 2018
I contacted Dr. Patrick because of a neck injury while rock climbing. After a detailed examination he explained my condition using a cool anatomy app. I didn’t mind paying cash for PT because I was back to climbing after three sessions. I absolutely recommend Dr. Patrick for muscular pain relief.Kyle BarrettJanuary 16, 2018
Had a great experience with Patrick. He took care of my back pain with a few visits.Navin JainJanuary 9, 2018
