Patient Comments (1)

I went to see Dr O'Connor based a a mammogram recommendation to have a biopsy. During 1 office visit he performed an ultrasound & said he didn't see anything that warranted a biopsy. I didn't understand & asked him to explain why if there was something dejected that needed to be looked at further?...more
