Loving Words From My Patients

Dr Donthu was recommended to me by my daughter's pediatrician. Initially, I just went because I was having a tough time losing weight even after putting in lots of effort and I was always feeling exhausted with frequent episodes of headaches. When I visited Dr Donthu for the first time she patiently took the time to understand my whole life and then made me understand that I first need to get healthy to lose weight. She pointed out that my gut plays a vital role and the symptoms that I faced were all indications that my gut has issues. When I started the lifestyle and medications she suggested I wasn't feeling great and in the 1st two follow-ups I didn't see any difference and only kept complaining about the issues. But after the 3rd visit which was close to 4 months, something magical happened and all the symptoms disappeared. My episodes of headaches were not there and I had so much energy that I started to wake up with a smile on my face. Thanks to Dr Donthu for all the support she gave me throughout the journey. I realized what life is without having a headache. I am so grateful to her and would definitely recommend her. Thanks :)

I am so thankful I found Dr. Donthu. She is very knowledgeable and listens to her patients. I've never had a doctor as thorough as her. I also have no medical insurance, so her patient membership plan is amazing and affordable. It is a peace of mind knowing I have a relationship with a doctor who genuinely cares.

Dr. Donthu is an exceptional doctor! She cares about you as a patient and takes the time to listen to your concerns about what is going on. She is never in a rush to get you out and she is very kind and compassionate. Recently, Dr. Donthu has been using a functional medicine approach to determine the root causes of my issues rather than just treating the symptoms. This has helped us to come up with a good plan for my recovery. I am excited to continue my relationship with her!

Dr. Donthu is a Godsend. Im saying this because id told Spirit that I was in the market for someone who is functioning from both spectrums and I met her page and a certain video review convinced me! By her being patient, thorough, resourceful, knowledgeable and easy to talk, I find her to be down to earth and caring as well. This was my first visit in which her focus was on learning and getting to know about me, she was able to assure me that the care would be effective and although being diagnosed with a few issues, it's going to take commitment I simply loved the fact she operates from both MD and Functional Medicine, her aim is to get to the root and assist you in arriving at your destination!!❤️ Haven't arrived but am in hot pursuit! Thank you Dr. Donthu

Dr. Donthu is an absolute pleasure to work with. I don’t normally love visiting the doctors office but she made my experience so much better than what I’m used to and so much more relaxed. She took the time to get to know me and made me feel very comfortable every step of the way. I would highly recommend Dr. Donthu to everyone!

Dr. Donthu is hands down the absolute best doctor I have had. It's hard to find doctors who truly care about you as a person. She spends quality time with you as a patient and is genuinely concerned about YOU and your health. She is a godsend and I can honestly say that I feel very confident in knowing that I have a doctor who doesn't see me as a patient or a payment. She is a real treasure and has been a blessing to my health AND my overall well being. I feel like every patient needs a Dr. Donthu!

Dr. Donthu is truly amazing, she has been my husband and my primary care for 5 years, soon we will add our son once he turns 18. She takes the time to know YOU as a person, listen and fully care and diagnose you with our judgement. She truly cares, we simply adore her and refer everyone to her!

I have been seeing Dr Donthu every since I have been living in McKinney from Kansas. She is very nice and thorough. I know that when I go to see her she will take her time and listen to me and figure out what my illness is right away and is very concerned about me. She always follows up to see how I am doing and I know she really cares about me. I can always get in to see her the same day too. Staff is friendly and so is nursing staff. Dr Donthu is the best! I love her.

“I recently moved to TX and had to find a new doctor. I found Dr. Donthu pleasant, concerned and very thorough, as well as having a courteous staff. At the end of my visit she said I could call her "Dr. D" when I tried to pronounce her name properly.”
Marie S.
Patient - Dr. Donthu
“Dr. Donthu is the Best. I am in my 60s and have seen many physicians. I have never seen someone who takes time and advocates for you. I couldn't secure appointment with other specialists and she personally calls and arranges. This happened twice with me. Also, she is a no nonsense doctor and very clear in her expectations about compliance. She is very professional in her attire and always a pleasure to meet her.”
Rebecca G.

I am Dr. Donthu.

I welcome you to Saffron Health! The idea of Saffron Health emerged from my desire of offering more to my patients who have consistently shown me love and to do my part in bringing positive change in the health of the community.

I have a strong personal belief that primary care services should be more than just “pill for the ill”, but rather, that they should promote healthy living through easy-to-implement lifestyle changes.

My goal is to provide personalized services in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. My focus always remains on you, my aim is to meet your health goals, and to empower you with the tools necessary to achieve the healthy lifestyle that you deserve! All while respecting your time and the money spent.

I want to reduce the time and money spent trying different solutions with no help, I want to know the cause of your suffering and work effectively to reduce it. That is what sets Saffron Health apart from other primary care clinics.

The functional medicine consult is a specialized service I offer which intends to identify the root cause of the imbalance in complex chronic illnesses and work to optimize your health through healing the mind, body, and spirit. A holistic approach will get you one step closer to living the life of wellness you truly deserve!

So, I welcome you all to become a part of our Saffron family and join us in our journey to your wellbeing.
