Dr. Doane has always been very good at telling me what I need to do and, about the medication that he gives me, and those I am taking. He has been my go to doctor since 2002, he is great. Listens and shows true concern.

January 24, 2017

It would have been nice to have instructions when I left like it has been done before.

January 23, 2017

My relationship with Dr Doane continues to be excellant

December 23, 2016

It's probably not fair that I am taking this survey. I was late and Dr. Doane didn't have the proper time to be judged fairly. My back has been in extreme pain but he didn't have time to address this because I also have great GI concerns. So he addressed the GI issue. However there has been no follow through on that so I am discouraged.

December 12, 2016

Dr Doane and his staff are always efficient, friendly and thorough

December 12, 2016

Excellent Physician Care addresses your concerns and applies careful treatment plan

December 06, 2016

Always a great experience

November 27, 2016

amazingly professional and caring and seemed interested in what I said.

November 10, 2016


November 04, 2016

I wish I could give a + here because the Doctor was the outstanding feature of the visit

October 31, 2016

Dr. Doane, without a doubt, is one of the most caring, dedicated and highly knowledgeable providers at the U Hospital. He listens with genuine intent, displays care and concern and answers each and every question with a great deal of professionalism , dedication and care. I appreciate his devotion to quality care and I can honestly say that the U Hospital is number one in quality due to care , concern and dedication of great providers like him. Please extend my profound thanks and appreciation to him for being such exceptional care givers. The world is truly a better place with great and wonderful people like him in it. I am still touched and humbled that despite being so busy he accepted me as a new patient. Please continue to administer this survey by asking each and every patient to provide his/her input. I am positive that one of the main reasons that you are number one in quality is much due to obtaining feedback from your patients.

October 28, 2016

Dr. Doane expressed a great deal of concern about my health status. He made a good case for taking action while including me in the decision making process.

October 26, 2016

Wonderful experience. Dr. Doane spent a sufficient amount of time with me and we were able to discuss all issues related to my health since I had seen him the previous year.

October 24, 2016

I have had many doctors in my 83 years. Dr. Doane is the very best. I am very grateful for his thoughtful care.

October 24, 2016

I continue to be very impressed with Dr. Doane's bedside manner, as well as the courteous treatment by the other professionals who work at the clinic. Thank you for excellent service and help!

October 22, 2016

I can't sing Dr. Doane's praises loud enough I am a relatively healthy person, who became very ill in September, and was hospitalized for sepsis. Even though I had only seen Dr. Doane a couple of times in the past, he called me as soon as he found out I was in the hospital. He took the time to review everything that was happening, and throughout the course of my illness, answered every call and MyChart message within 24 hours, even when not directly involved in that part of my care. (In fact, I believe he was out of the country, during part of the time, and still replied to MyChart messages.) When I saw him for my follow up appointment after discharge, he addressed every question and concern I had, and seemed genuinely happy to do so. I am very thankful to have a doctor who is so caring and approachable. I feel like I hit the jackpot with Dr. Doane!

October 17, 2016

Dr Doane everything I could hope for ina primary care povider.

October 12, 2016

I felt as though once the plan was discussed I was left to navigate alone. No one told me if I needed to check out or if I needed to make appointments for other departments discussed or if someone would contact me. When it came to finding out test results I was told by someone other than the physician, but wasn't told if I still was recommended to see a specialist or not since the results came back differently than expected. I felt frustrated with lack of communication about what to do after. I felt pawned off like my simple questions were not worth being addressed. Once I was out of the office I was no longer a concern.

October 07, 2016

Dr. Doane is the best! He addresses every concern and I feel like he really cares about my well being.

October 06, 2016

Dr. Doane is an interesting man with whom I enjoy talking. This visit was supposed to be a brief visit which it was. I enjoy talking with Dr. Doane but I'm not his only patient so he had to take care of my reasons for visiting an then move on to another patient.

September 12, 2016

Great health care by Dr. Doane and his team care as usual.

September 10, 2016

Dr. Doane is an excellent doctor.

September 09, 2016

The doctor doesn't know what's wrong with me and didn't tell me what sort of an illness it is.

September 05, 2016

Dr. Doane is thoughtful of his patients and answers thoroughly, listens well, and is very understanding. He always takes into account my thoughts on treatment and is always willing to discuss.

August 29, 2016

Dr. Doane is extremely thorough. He's also very pleasant in his approach.

August 25, 2016

Dr. Doane is always so kind and professional and always shows a genuine interest in my overall health and well being. I am fortunate to have him as my Primary Care Physician.

August 08, 2016

Great, as always

August 05, 2016

Dr. Doane is literally one of the best doctors I have had. I appreciate him being so down to earth, personable and empathetic to me and my needs.

July 24, 2016

Thorough, thoughtful, and listened well to my concerns.

July 06, 2016

Dr. Doan, as usual, took excellent care of my needs. I had a pain in my groin where I once had a hernia, and he was able to detect that I did not have a hernia there or on the other side either. I came in with a list of prescriptions and the doctor approved those for renewal, which his nurse ordered at my pharmacies. In addition, Dr. Doan thought it would be in my best interest to take a metabolic panel, a PSA test, and a check on the effectiveness of my thyroid medication at the lab. All these produced significant results. My PSA was at an all-time low, but my thyroid medication turned out to be a bit too hot. He promptly adjusted my prescription for it at my pharmacy. This was a very productive visit, which Doctor Doane accomplished through steady pace and timing, without huffing and puffing. Doctor Doane is tops in my book. If he were my university student I would give him an A+!

July 02, 2016

Dr. Doane was fantastic. Very caring. Sensitive to my needs and desires. Very thorough. Excellent bedside manner. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

June 29, 2016

I came to this appointment hoping to get a little clarity on some feelings I have been experiencing on my medication. I left feeling worse and more confused. Doctor told me that "there isn't any physiological reason I should be experiencing pain" I feel like he discredited my concern and was condescending in how he spoke to me. All I would have liked is some reaffirmation that this will get better with time and that what I'm feeling is in fact real. Doctor seemed very bothered when I told him I had a second opinion on my scans. I won't be returning. I left this appt feeling worse than when I went in. I am an employee at the hospital...frustrating to say the least when I'm not confident in the U of U providers I work for

June 17, 2016

Dr. Doane is an excellent physician...... We take very good care of ourselves and are always looking for new methods and the latest research, some of it New Age.....

I had the pleasure of knowing him many years ago but did not realize that he is still practicing at the U.

March 08, 2016

Dr D told me that even though he and I had both expected this to be an annual physical, I was only scheduled for 20 minutes and I need no reschedule another appointment. :(

February 10, 2014

Dr Doane the best there is

February 08, 2014

Dr. Doane was gracious and efficient in tending to my needs. He is authoritative on every medical subject, and he knows clinic specialists to recommend for specific problems. Dr. Doane inspires trust and confidence in his work, and thus is an asset to University Hospitals and Clinics.

February 08, 2014

I always feel I am in good hands when I see Dr. Doane.

February 07, 2014

The doctor told me to come in after I had sent a My Chart message about my symptoms. When he came in the room he thought I was there for a completely different reason and had ordered testing that had nothing to do with the reason of my visit. I am not sure if he was the one that read my My Chart message or if his MA had read the message and gave him the wrong information. It was very bothersome as I was in for a rectal problem and sciatic pain and he ordered a UA.

February 04, 2014

excellent info provided

January 31, 2014

Dr. Doane is always very thoughtful and works to include me in decision making.

January 25, 2014

Dr. Doane is one of the finest physicians in the city!

January 23, 2014

Dr. Doane is very efficient, very thorough, and in every respect, very professional.

January 17, 2014

very professional interactions by all providers

January 16, 2014

I have recommended Dr. Doane to several people.

January 08, 2014

what a difference from my last visit. last time I felt like I was just rushed through but this time Dr. Doan took his time and continued to ask if I had anything else to discuss. He took time to explain thing and check out everything I had asked for.

January 06, 2014

Doctor Doane is an excellent doctor and I can always communicate very easily and openly with him about what is going on with me and he always responds in the most positive and helpful ways.

January 03, 2014

This was a well-care visit for annual checkup.

December 30, 2013

Dr. Doane is a very good listener. He thinks through issues well.

December 30, 2013

I love Dr Doane and recommend him all the time. I want no-nonense feedback about my health and get that. Great recommendations and diagnoses far and his attention is on ME when he is with me!!!

December 26, 2013

Dr. Doane is an outstanding physician and goes out of his way for his patients. His understanding of a problem, diagnosis and treatment, and communication skills are all exemplary.

December 26, 2013

Dr. Doane is the best! I am blessed to have great medical care at the U and hope and pray that obamacare does not mess things up with the help I receive.

December 23, 2013

Best Internist I have ever had

December 21, 2013

Already have recommended him several times.

December 21, 2013

John is an excellent provider. Have been with him for about 6 years now.

December 16, 2013

Dr. Doane is the best

December 15, 2013


December 15, 2013

Dr. Doane did a fabulous job as always. He listened to my concerns, and he addressed every one of them in a competent and caring manner. I am fortunate to have him for a physician.

December 13, 2013

Dr. Doane was nice and courteous and did not seem rushed which was nice.

December 11, 2013

Dr Doane is amazing-- he is respects his patients, genuinely cares, and is extremely competent. He is very thorough.

December 11, 2013

Dr. Doane and the Clinic 2 staff are very good. I have been coming here for many years. The staff presents a warm environment and, in this world of shrinking medical dollars, Dr. Doane is never in a rush to see the next patient. Very high marks are given by me. Thank you all.

December 09, 2013

I appreciated Dr. Doane's concern and care, for both myself and my husband. We have recommended him to several of our friends.

December 05, 2013

Dr Doane is very thorough & checked all recent lab tests & explained the values of the various tests. Additionally he went over any relevant problems. I will highly recommend this care provider to others.

November 28, 2013

The medical world could use more physicians like Dr. Doane. He came highly recommended by another physician and we will recommend him to others wanting better medical care...

November 14, 2013

All Very Good

November 11, 2013

excellent in every way

November 11, 2013

Dr Doane is a great person.

November 04, 2013

I've been very happy with Dr. Doane. He has a firm understanding of my health and medical condition, and is very sympathetic to my financial condition (I don't have insurance). He explains things to me more clearly and with more compassion than any doctor I've ever had, and does not condescend. I would (do) highly recommend him.

November 04, 2013

Dr Doane is a very good doctor

November 03, 2013

medication listed on computer was not what I was taking. I was taken off med due to coughing--I was given two meds that reacted to each other causing swelling in feet and legs

November 01, 2013

as usual, Dr. Doane came through for me....was extremely thorough and put my fears to rest

October 28, 2013

as always Dr Doane was excellent

October 26, 2013

Dr Doane is an amazing physican to his pts, he is kind , informed, cares about more that just you body, he consistenly offers me the best of care, with follow up on my chart to keep me informed of what I need to do next.

October 26, 2013

Dr. Doane ordered two lab tests, I still have not received a call with those results.

October 18, 2013

when I first started visiting the provider, he took time to explain things and showed concern. He took time deciding and explaining about any meds I needed or requested. But last couple of visit I didn't get the same; felt like he was in a hurry to get it over with. Perhaps it's an admistrative problems. Maybe providers are required to see too many patients per day no than what it used to be. My wife have the same provider and she is seeing the same trend. So we are both considering other options. And we have two children that see doctors in your health care system. That might change too.

October 18, 2013

I couldn't ask for a better "health team"

October 15, 2013

Great doctor and I have tons of confidence I'm getting the best care.

October 09, 2013

Dr. Doane is such a caring person, always takes as much time as he feels I need. Very encouraging.

October 08, 2013

My only less-than-excellent rating is about medication -- in retrospect, I could wish that we had covered things like possible side effects, interactions, etc. To be fair, I forgot to ask those questions. But it's always a concern of mine...

October 06, 2013

Dr. Doane is always very nice & friendly.

October 04, 2013

Dr. Doane and his staff are organized, caring and have genuine concern for their patients wellbeing.

September 30, 2013

Dr. Doane explains everything very clearly.

September 26, 2013

I already have recommended him to several colleagues.

September 25, 2013

Dr. Doane is an outstanding physician

September 25, 2013

Dr. Doane's knowledge is wonderful, but his "bedside manner" was fantastic. This combination made for one of the best doctor visits I've had in quite a while.

September 23, 2013

I was under some stress during one appointment and doctor was busy. I was trying to understand a situation I was in that did not make sense to me. Other than that my visits to clinic 2 have been great and overall the staff and doctor are very good at what they do.

August 27, 2013

I would definitely recommend Dr. John Doane to anyone looking for a care provider. He took the time to explain his thoughts regarding the decision of removing me from my High Blood Pressure meds. He gave encouragement as well as a positive reinforcement to achieving the goals I have set for myself.

August 19, 2013

Very impressed with Dr. Doane

August 16, 2013

Dr. Doane is extremely caring about his patients. I will continue to go to him as long as I am in the University health care system>

August 14, 2013

Good experience. Courteous and knowledgeable doctor. Gives good explanations.

August 06, 2013

This was my second visit with Dr. Doane. I previously had fine care at the Gundersen Clinic in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and since moving here last year I wanted to at least duplicate that quality of care in Salt Lake City. I feel I have done so with Dr. Doane, who demonstrates medical expertise yet he is approachable, understanding and caring for my needs. There are other clinics nearer to our home, but the trip is well worth the trouble to be able to consult with Dr. Doane. I also like the diversity of specialists available at University Hospital and Clinics.

August 05, 2013

Dr. Doane is a very knowledgeable physician. He really understands medicine. He took great care of my father until he passed away. He is my doctor and my husband's doctor. I recently referred my sister to him also and he is giving her good medical advicee. He is concerned about his patients. I trust him.

August 03, 2013

I am grateful for the diagnostic skill of Dr. Doane.

August 02, 2013

I am very pleased with Dr. Doane. He is very thorough and concerned with my welfare.

July 22, 2013

Dr. Doane seemed a little distracted or something. He kept contradicting himself as well. One minute he was saying it couldn't be a certain problem the next he was saying it could be, very confusing overall.

July 19, 2013

I highly recommend him.

July 16, 2013

I have been goiong to Dr. Doane for a number of years. He is an excellent doctor and I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to recommend him in the future.

July 15, 2013

I can't say enough good things about the care that Dr Doane gives. He was thoughtful, patient and honest in the way he responded to all my concerns.

July 11, 2013

Help was very good at the pharmacy. A suggestion was made concerning some new medication that was very helpful.

July 03, 2013

I have a high level of confidence in Dr. Doane's diagnostic acumen.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Doane is a great doctor.

June 21, 2013

Dr. Doane is terrific. Very thorough, really listened, was patient (while I was trying to remember details of things I should have checked before the visit!) and did a good job of explaining my options.

June 19, 2013

I have recommended many of my colleagues, who have asked about my provider at the University of Utah Medical Center, to Dr. Doane.

June 17, 2013

I already recommend Dr Doane to others. He is always caring, patient and knowledgeable. I never feel rushed with him.

May 03, 2013

He answered all questions, provided resources and services to address all issues. His information regarding medications was especially appreciated.

April 30, 2013

My favorite thing about Dr Doane is that he never seems rushed. He takes time to do a thorough exam and makes sure to explain his thought process. I appreciate that Dr Doane talks with me - for example, he uses personal references and his own experiences in conversation - unlike other providers who talk "at" me.

April 22, 2013

Dr. Doane is always awesome and take great care of me. Crystal was very kind and made me feel comfortable while getting ready for the doctor. Lori was a great help with getting an issue fixed with my rx as I needed a different rx due to copay cost. Overall, a great experience in clinic.

April 09, 2013

Excellent experience. Was a tad put off by a strong feeling that the provider really liked the IUD option for estrogen replacement, but she accepted my choice not to go that route without judgement.

April 01, 2013

Dr Doane is a very caring Doctor who sees his patients as people and reacts to them with kindness, care, concern and exhaustive investigation into causes.

April 01, 2013

Dr. Doane was great. He made you feel like he had all the time in the world to listen to your concerns.

March 27, 2013

Well informed and experienced in medical care. Confidence level high.

March 19, 2013

As a health care provider myself, I can't tell you how confident I am in Dr. Doane. Not only did he help me today with his thorough approach, he has been very helpful to my family members who see him, as well. Dr. Doane is a fantastic physician, and I am constantly referring others to him. on a scale of 0-10, he's a 15.

March 13, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Doane to several colleagues, all of whom are equally pleased.

Dr. Doane has been very good, kind, and considerate to my husband over many years!

February 21, 2013

John Doane is the consumate health care professional. He consistently takes whatever time is needed to address all of my concerns and questions. He is the most thorough, professional and considerate doctor I have experienced in my 50+ years.

February 16, 2013

Excellent physician

February 14, 2013

Nice job thank you

February 13, 2013

I have always loved Dr. Doane because he doesn't pull any punches. Tells me what I should hear from my Dr., even though it's not always what I WANT to hear. He knows that he can only do so much with my treatment and informs me what will happen if I don't carry through what's expected of me. I love that! I am always included in the final outcome for treatment. I know what to expect and when.

February 12, 2013

I would and have recommended him!

February 06, 2013

Dr. Doane is always very patient, compationate and caring.

February 05, 2013

January 23, 2013

I am 74 yrs old. I've had many different doctors in the 18 cities we've lived. Dr. Doane is one of my top three doctors. Best in SLC. I came to him because of the many fine recommendations from other patients. I feel my health care is being overseen by a top notch doctor.

January 15, 2013

I have already recommend friends to Dr. Doane.

November 12, 2012

Dr Doane is so nice and personable he always makes you feel like you are his only patient and answers all my questions and never makes me feel rushed or like a number

November 12, 2012

A negative is for Dr Doane to seem condescending. I explained that I was going to be having Bariatric Surgery and it seemed like he had to fight to not smile about the news. I appreciate the intention of the Doctor which I assume is, 'I want the best for you', but it may be necessary to accept that old habits die hard and sometimes people need help making changes.

October 27, 2012

I have already recommended Dr. Doane to several others who are now satisfied patients.

October 23, 2012

Dr. Doane is always great!

October 21, 2012

October 17, 2012

Already have recommended Dr. Doane to others, who now are his patients.

October 08, 2012

Dr. Doane is a very kind and well educated individual. I also believe he is a very caring man with a big heart. He came highly reccamended and all the thing I heard about him is true. I feel that I am in good hands and will reach my health goals with his guidance and care.

October 05, 2012

Dr. Doane is great and has helped me so much. He has taken the time to talk throughly with me and talks through everything and helps me understand that I need to know. He is caring and thoughtful and makes me feel I can tell him anything and he won't judge me.

September 27, 2012

I trust Dr. Doane because of the care and concern he has always shown me. He answers my questions and will even email me when I have a major problem and need an immediate answer.

September 26, 2012

From the receptionist who checked me in (can't remember her name) to Dr Doane who is incredibly compassionate, my entire visit was comforting which I needed considering how awful I felt

September 25, 2012

I am very content with the care that I am receiving by Dr Doane. I am especially pleased with the encouragement that Dr Done is giving me to take care of myself as carefully as I care for my husband. I know that improving my health will allow me to have more energy to meet the needs of my responsibilities.

September 17, 2012

Dr. Doane is an excellent provider.

September 14, 2012

My doctor is fabulous. He always appears caring and concerned and takes time with me even though he may have other patients he is dealing with at the same time. He is sympathetic and can be firm when he needs to be. He always seems to remember me, even when there is a great deal of time between visits. He makes me feel like we are a team working towards the best health that I can have. He knows how to put me at my ease and he makes me feel like a person rather than a client or a patient and that he adapts his way of dealing with me to me and my particularities rather than having one generic attitude towards patients. He treats me like an individual and he has an excellent bedside manner achieving an easy rapport with me.

September 04, 2012

Dr Doane is wondeful- I know that he is commited to help me stay and be healthy- He and his staff are very good at making me feel as if i'm their favorite patient- I recommend Dr Doane to anyone who asks me if I know a good Dr.

September 04, 2012

He seemed very sensitive to my personal stress and I feel that he will help me improve my physical and emotional health

August 24, 2012

attentive, friendly, caring Fixed problem as always

August 21, 2012

New issues seem to prevent focus on original reason for coming to this caretaker.

August 10, 2012

Took the time to explain my problems and suggested remedies.

August 10, 2012

Very positive experience...very good doctor.

August 10, 2012

I arrived with no appointment with a possibly serious condition. The level of competence, concern and professionalism were far beyond what anyone would expect.

July 25, 2012

Dr. Doane has been my doctor for quite a few years. His only frustration is having enough time to provide the help my condition needs. I always try to schedule enough time for us to cover what is needed.

July 24, 2012

Excellent experience. My husband has been a patient of Dr. Doane's for a very long time! He has been particularly kind since his surgery on October 12, 2005. Loring has not been able to walk since that time! Many thanks for all kindnesses shown to my h

July 16, 2012

John Doane, MD and his support staff are the best I have ever encountered.

June 18, 2012

feel guilty about the amount the time primary care spends with me. i have many illnesses.

June 15, 2012

Dr. Doane always spends all the time necessary and explains everything very clearly. He always shows concern and caring. He is such a wonderful doctor and my family and I are lucky to have him as our care provider.

June 08, 2012

Always a pleasure to see Dr Doane. Very easy to talk to and caring.

June 05, 2012

Dr Doane was thoughtful, kind and responsive. He took great care to understand my issues and to respond to them. He inspires confidence.

May 15, 2012

April 20, 2012

This was a first meeting.

April 18, 2012

Excellent doctor

March 27, 2012

For a first visit this was a very good experience.

March 24, 2012

Dr. Doane is easy to speak to and provides clear, straight forward responses.

March 17, 2012

I still have a follow up appointment to set where I imagine we'll discuss possible causes for my issues and determine if any further care is necessary. Then I'll know better how Dr. Doane handles follow up instructions, etc.

March 16, 2012

As a nurse and after being treated like I knew nothing in Idaho Falls, we have been positively thrilled that there are doctors who will listen and take our concerns seriously. You guys have been great.

March 13, 2012

Already have recommended Dr. Doane to several others -- who also have reported high satisfaction (to me).

March 10, 2012

Respected my Doctor and liked being in a facilty where the equipment and systems were not 25 years old.

March 09, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Doane to many of my co workers. I feel confident in his skill and knowlege. He is almost always available and will work his patient's into the schedule if at all possible. He has an excellent reputation in the medical community.

February 29, 2012

I have already HIGHLY recommended Dr Doane to others. He actually did an examination and listened to me. I also liked that there were not a string of medical students or residents I had to talk to first.

February 28, 2012

Dr. Doane is an excellent physician. He treats me like an equal in my care. He listens to and answers my questions. I have complicated health needs and he understands that. I need labs to be drawn/read that day and he called me at my home at 8:45 p.m. to discuss the results. He also emailed me the next day to check on my condition.

February 28, 2012

Dr. Doane is a very good doctor. Always makes sure I understand what he is telling me. Always seems concerned about my care.

February 28, 2012

He is a good doctor.

February 25, 2012


February 17, 2012

I like interacting Dr. Doane a lot. He is smart, courteous, and I never felt rushed (or that he was rushed).

February 11, 2012

Dr Doane is wonderful! A true healer who examined me thoroughly and actually listened to what I had to say. For example, I complained of feeling out of breath. He didn't dismiss me although my oxygen level was fine. He questioned me finding out I felt it when I was walking. He sent me for a walk with a nurse. Indeed, after walking it dropped. My last Dr hadn't bothered so I had suffered needlessly. I've finally found a doctor I can trust to do what I need

February 08, 2012

Dr. Doane is superb. I feel fortunate to have him for my healthcare

February 04, 2012

Dr. John Doan has my full confidence, and I have recommended him to friends.

January 23, 2012

Dr Doane is great.

January 19, 2012

He was great The electronic medical record is a nuisance.

January 13, 2012

When I moved to Utah and needed a doctor, I was told Doctor Doane was the best. He has been my doctor for 6 years now and I have yet to regret having him as my doctor. Whenever I go see him with an issue, I know he will do his very best for me...and he does.

January 03, 2012

I was very satisfied, especially since I was changing my primary care physician. I learned that I was taking one of my medications at the wrong time of day!
