Great surgeon very clear on procedure and what to expect following surgery
Very competent and professional
He's a great dr. Short sweet and to the point. He's honest and truly cares about his patients.
Explains everything well. Compassionate and understanding. Seems concerned for his patients' welfare.
Dr.ONeill was wonderful to me. He was efficient in seeing me, I never waited long to get in with him. His staff was knowledgeable and friendly. I would HIGHLY recommend him.
He has done surgery on both of my hands for different problems. I have never had any problems related to the surgery. He is a great surgeon, and I trust him and his decision. I highly recommend him.
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!
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!
