St Louis, MO |
I went to Dr. O'Boynick with Radicular pain from a severe herniation in my lower back. I ended up having to have surgery and have been pain free since. He was both professional and thorough.
St Louis, MO |
Had a car accident 40 years ago and suffered whiplash of the neck. 17 years ago discovered there was damage at 4 levels ... and had discectomy 5/6 & 6/7. Last few years suffered even more, but this time I'm 72. Dr. O'Boynick agreed to perform posterior surgery on 3/4 and 4/5. I didn't want a discectomy at levels 4 levels possibly requiring a cage. He successfully decompressed the nerve roots! I'm feeling good again considering my age! Dr. O'Boynick is an excellent surgeon!
Imperial, MO |
Very poor bed side manners. Did not even let me speak at my appointment. He would not treat me since I was a smoker. Even after quitting smoking he dragged out my surgery date. I finally had to request a different surgeon. I would not trust him to change a tire on my truck. He should not be practicing with the way he treats patients.

Dr. O'boynick took great care of me while I desperately needed surgery. He has done a wonderful job and leading me in the right direction after surgery.

He's friendly, thorough, efficient. He takes time to listen. He did surgery on my lower back and fused L3-4 and L4-5 a year ago. My pain is relieved greatly.
Chicago, IL |
Horrible - had surgery last summer l5/s1- after surgery he sent me back to work - when I repeatly told him it was work related. Within 2 months had same problems went in to tell him many times he just brushed me off and sent me to my primary ?! Really ! Primary sent me to pain mang. Who is currently treating me for failed back surgery . I can't work . I'm going in to get nerves burned off in my back almost a year out from surgery . I would never send anyone to this dr ! no return calls
in Arnold, MO |
I saw Dr O'Boynick at the Fenton office recently and was very pleased with his staff and with the MD himself. Dr O'Boynick listened well to my complaints and concerns and took the time to relate the injury to the symptoms, which was new information to me. He discussed treatment options which he explained thoroughly, and then together the decision was made based on my input also. I left the office feeling much more knowledgeable than when I arrived. Seeing Dr O'Boynick was a excellent experience.
