Dr O'Gara always shows concern and expertise with my health issues. Assistant is equally respectful and knowledgeable.
I can and will highly recommend Dr. O' Gara.
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
Very knowledgeable about my problem and concerned for the pain I was in.
*Dr. O'Gara was thorough, courteous and explained findings clearly with options for treatment.
Dr. O'Gara is fantastic doctor . just getting in to see him was a hassle ..
I feel very positive and confident with this care provider
excellent Dr, would highly recommend
He offered no information as to what I could take for the pain or treatment of any kind that might have helped.
*Dr. O'Gara has operated on my back twice, with great results, and is scheduled to operate on my back again on 3-23-17. He is a great surgeon.
Really, I don't know why you rate a care provider's friendliness! I want them to be competent, but you don't ask about that! I want them to be very knowledgeable, explain what I need and why and help me set it up. This all happened with Dr. O'Gara and Marcie, the nurse.
