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
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.
Bad experience all the way around with the Dr.
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.
Provider's knowledge and experience were excellent! Provider was neutral on physical therapy...I think he should be promoting it.
These were the best & nicest dr.'s I've ever seen.
This was a follow-up visit after surgery (6 months) and everything is great -
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!
Very pleased with the doctor.
after the second visit i do not plan to see this provider again.
The doctor provided very limited communication... somewhat arrogant and condescending.
