I live 100 miles from Denver and while in Denver this last week, I was experiencing some flashes and called Dr. O'Connell's office. I had seen him a few months earlier for the same symptoms of a lesser degree. He was scheduled the whole day, but squeezed me in for a quick check. Dr. O'Connell is very professional and efficient in his care and at the same time very caring and compassionate in his manner. We are so fortunate to have him in the Denver area!! Elaine Gelvin
