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!

He had successfully repaired a nasty elbow fracture three years earlier on my other arm. I am a satisfied repeat customer, although I hope I do not make a habit of this. I like his manner, and I trust his skills.

Another physician in her practice insisted I did not have a torn rotator cuff, because it was not visible on the MRI. He grew frustrated with my continued pain and immobility and referred me to her. She felt that I did have a tear and actually found two during the surgery. She listens carefully, retains your information and keeps careful notes. I have complete confidence in her abilities.

Dr. Harrod and his entire staff exceeded my high expectations. I would make the trip from Charleston, SC for any Ortho care. I felt like I was in the best possible hands from my first appointment.

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.

Absolutely wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to anyone. So thankful that I found him for my total knee replacement surgery and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to him for other surgeries

Wonderful with my 6 year old with a broken elbow. Couldn't ask for a better doctor.

Dr. Donegan explained everything in detail so that I could understand. He even had a 3D image of my arm so I could see exactly the damage that was done & what he would do to repair. He is a very compassionate doctor.

Dr. Donegan and his staff of Bluegrass Orthopedics In Lexington, Ky make the 3 hour drive from Pikeville, Ky to Lexington worth while. He and his staff are some of the most competent and upbeat group of professionals we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Dr. Donegan did a complete reverse shoulder replacement on me and one complete reverse replacement for my wife, Suzie. He also repaired her other shoulder. I have completely recovered from my surgery and Suzie has recovered from one of her’s. She is 2 months post op on her full replacement, and her recovery is progressing quickly. Both of us wholeheartedly recommend Dr Donegon and his staff!!!
