So glad I went to Dr O'Neill for my hand surgery. I could not be more pleased. No one wants to have surgery, but when you have to, it's so great to have all your questions answered and have great results!
Explains everything well. Compassionate and understanding. Seems concerned for his patients' welfare.
What a terrific doctor and human being! Thanks for caring about my friends arm and scheduling for next-day surgery.
Great bedside manner, professional, efficient and explained procedures where I could understand everything!

Dr. O'Neill performed a miracle surgery on my 2 crushed fingers. He and his staff are still working to get them more mobile. I am so grateful to him for his skill and caring attitude.
Dr O'Neill treated me for a dog bite. He was very kind & explained everything thoroughly. He answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Top notch care!
Caring, interested, quick and to the point
Procedure was done expertly with no complications. Healing time was excellent. Dr. O'Neill was very thorough in explaining the procedure and necessary follow up instructions.
Great dr He's short sweet and to the point. He's truly concerned about his patients wellbeing. Had CTRS 3 yrs ago now on left hand and I'm returning for surgery on the right. I wouldn't trust my hands to anyone else.
