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.

My care could not have been any better than what I received from Dr. O'Neill and his staff.

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.

I was worried that I would lose some function which would impair my performance necessary for my occupation. I have been 100% pleased with every aspect of the care I received from Dr ONeill. My surgery was completely successful. I have full use of my thumb. Dr ONeill treated me with respect. He knew I was experiencing pain and he was most kind and caring. I highly recommend this surgeon.

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!

He did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand in 2009 and I have had NO residual numbness. I started having pain in my thumb joints in November, 2015 and the pain remained constant. I saw Dr. O'Neill in May, 2016. He recommended injections and advised they may be painful. I had them in both thumbs and by the next day, I have no pain in my thumbs joints! I am extremely satisfied!
