I trust Doctor O’Neil. He has given my the best treatments and has kept me on the mend. I cannot thank him enough during this recovery period of my hand.
Great surgeon very clear on procedure and what to expect following surgery
Great bedside manner, professional, efficient and explained procedures where I could understand everything!
What a terrific doctor and human being! Thanks for caring about my friends arm and scheduling for next-day surgery.
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.
Very competent and professional
Great! Listens, explains, kind-everything you need when you’re suffering! He’s fixed several broken hands and both wrists for me-surgery and plate on one-couldn’t be happier! Highly recommend!
