My level of Care was outstanding and the surgeries could not have went better. He explained my conditions and the surgeries well beforehand so I could make an informed decision. As a result of the surgeries I regained full use of my hand and fingers back. Doctor O’Neill has improved the quality of my life with his skilled “hands” and expertise. He is the best.

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!
