*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.
Great doctor. *Dr. O'Gara seemed to be a very competent, caring physician.
*Dr. O'Gara & his staff are really pretty good & when I explained about the delay of my appointment with he was very concerned & we talked it out together.
