good experience

2/12/2018

Dr O Gara was very honest and upfront with me about what he thinks the problem is. Although he wasn't able to help he did provide a referral to a hip specialist. I have been dealing with this problem for almost 4 years and I left this visit hopeful that I can get it addressed. I appreciated his honesty and disappointment that he wasn't able to help. Renee Bradford was absolutely the most compassionate caregiver I have encountered in this journey. Top notch providers here.

2/11/2018

Bery knowledgeable. Listened to concern. Asked questions. Discussed alternative treatments. Have total confidence in his advice/care.

2/8/2018

I have been very pleased based on this single encounter

1/10/2018

I feel like he needs to work on his bedside manner. When patients are dealing with continuous pain, understanding and outlets available are very meaningful. Make patients feel like you care, and they are not just another job.

11/12/2017

Dr O'Gara always shows concern and expertise with my health issues. Assistant is equally respectful and knowledgeable.

10/30/2017

I can and will highly recommend Dr. O' Gara.

10/29/2017

I felt as though the doctor did not listen to me at all. He did a 1 min ortho exam but failed to actually address any of my concerns. If felt as though he belittled me and made me feel very stupid

5/24/2017

Very knowledgeable about my problem and concerned for the pain I was in.

5/22/2017
