Review of Dr. O'Laughlin

-fresno, ca |

Results are worth waiting for. Pain is so complex, it deserves careful study, and Dr O takes the appropriate time to deal with the full spectrum chronic pain presents - and always wants to improve treatment . He cares, and he gets it

Review of Dr. O'Laughlin

-Mariposa, CA |

I had been a patient of Dr O's for many years. He is an excellent doctor who knows what he's doing and takes the time to listen to patients and answer questions. That's the upside. The downside is that his patients are forced to wait for HOURS, not minutes, no matter what, and while you are forced to sit and listen to other patients complain about the wait, your car might get towed, parking is limited.

Review of Dr. O'Laughlin

-Fresno, CA |

There is no more dedicated a physician anywhere. While the insurance companies pay him for a15 min appointment, he takes whatever time necessary to fully understand and get to the bottom of a patients medical issue, explore possible solutions, and work to find the best course of treatment. As a result of his concern for each patient, he runs significantly behind time. Most of his patients understand this and are grateful to him. There is a special place in heaven for doctors like him.

Review of Dr. O'Laughlin

-Tulare, CA |

Dr O takes time to actually get to know you as a person. I don't feel like I'm a meal ticket to him, this probably explains the extreme wait times, but he's worth the wsit. Before I started seeing him my pain levels were horrendous, and now I'm living again. His office staff is polite and courteous as well.

Review of Dr. O'Laughlin

-FRESNO |

I've been seeing him for chronic pain for 2+ years. At first I put up with the all-day wait and the rude and unprofessional staff because I thought he really wants to help me figure out how to get better. I'm not sure I believe that any longer. He has pressured me into a medication I don't want due to its addictive nature. I've been on a regimen that's been working, but he tries to change things every month. His staff is consistently unprofessional and unconcerned with their work and patients.

Review of Dr. O'Laughlin

- in Fresno, CA |

I believe they over book themselves. Each time I come for my scheduled appointments I usually don't get seen until after 5-7 hours later. This is ridiculous. I have been there more than six times. Myself and other patients complains of such long waits. Most of us patients will let each other what time we got there and so forth. My appt. was for 3 and I did not leave the office until after 9 pm and there were still 5 more patients waiting in the lobby room. This is so sad and unprofessional.
