I wasn't examined or interviewed by dr ogara but by his resident. I would have preferred he too took s little more time with me and not be quite so rushed

3/29/2016

Positive.

1/19/2016

My experience with Dr O'Gara has been great. He is so nice to talk to. he just gave me my life back I am able to travel now before I stayed at home all the time. My husband and I think he is great person and doctor.

12/31/2015

Bad experience all the way around with the Dr.

11/12/2015

Dr. O'Gara is kind, patient and very caring. I was impressed by his knowledge and willingness to include me in decision making. He is professional and compassionate.

11/10/2015

Provider's knowledge and experience were excellent! Provider was neutral on physical therapy...I think he should be promoting it.

10/22/2015

These were the best & nicest dr.'s I've ever seen.

10/21/2015

This was a follow-up visit after surgery (6 months) and everything is great -

10/20/2015

All good.

9/30/2015

very good

9/28/2015

This provider spent NO TIME with me. No questions other then have I had neck surgery before, I said yes, then he said he needed a MRI, then left the room, that was it!

9/28/2015

Very pleased with the doctor.

7/27/2015

after the second visit i do not plan to see this provider again.

7/2/2015

The doctor provided very limited communication... somewhat arrogant and condescending.
