Patient Comments (9)

I have had many physicians in my lifetime and Catherine is by far the most intelligent, caring and inspiring physician I have ever had. She truly cares about the well being of her patients and is an incredible listener of not only what the patient says but what the patient is actually asking for.

I don't understand the bad reviews. Dr O'Connell is amazing. She's very sweet and I can tell she really cares about her patients. I love her staff too. Monika is the best. She always takes good care of me.!

As the other comments here, sadly, Dr. O'Connell has her own agenda concerning certain vitamin companies and the blood type diet which I don't agree with. Her answer to when menopause might start was "well, it keeps you young"....really? Staff is rude, never answers the phone, requests for copies...more

I was a patient for only a few months (2017-18.) I thought Dr. O'Connell was a good doctor but her nurse's (Monika) rude actions toward my family made it impossible to continue seeing Dr. O'Connell.
