    My husband had surgery to correct scoliosis & Dr OShaunessy did an excellent job. Gary was pain free after the surgery & was able to do everyday things with little trouble. Many thanks for his excellent surgical care! Barbara Chandler

    Went to him as a referral from my PCP after fighting back pain for 3+ years and trying everything from A-Z including pain management with no relief. Worse Dr. I've ever been too. First visit not even 5 minutes (in a hurry) prescribed pain medicine. Very quick at charging for a full office visit. 2nd time rude, blunt, no beside manners, not compationate, not sympathetic and by the way he was dictating while I was talking. Told me he could do nothing for me. I left crying. Still in pain.

    Changed my life. Fixed in 1 surgery, what another surgeon couldn't fix in 6 surgeries. Gave me hope when I was all but hopeless. He is compassionate, professional, genuine, understanding. When anyone asks about my back & who I recommend I never hesitate to say Dr. O'Shaughnessy. In my opinion he saved my life. I'll be seeing him again due to an increase of problems. These problems are associated to the previous surgeon's surgeries, not Dr. O'Shaughnessy. I trust him with my life.
