Had knee relief given after 1st visit with Doc O’mara . Then yrs pasted & back again with pain I went. He’s done meniscus surgery on both my knees since then , both went well. He listened to me carefully in office visits, then making best suggestions & plan for me. Very good at asking u questions needed to treat & diagnosing problems. PT department very helpful. His nursing staff has been fantastic & I’ve not experienced anything but good results with ease of making appts . I’ve used three different offices for the appts & all are good. It was usually which had 1st opening for me! Now over yrs these knees are causing some more pain with wear & arthritis taking hold , he’s been able to alleviate a good bit of that also. Thx fully the Sports Medicine Group will have partners there when I need to go to next step. Appreciate Doc O’mara ??very qualified ,professional & has a good bedside manner.

T. Pick – Aug 03, 2019
Dr. O’Mara is an excellent doctor. I had a torn meniscus and he and his staff made sure that I knew all of my options. When I decided that surgery was the way I wanted to go, they let me know what to expect from my surgery & all the way through my recovery. He takes the time to find out what is going on with you and even though you know that he’s extremely busy, all of his attention is focused on you during your appointment. Highly recommend seeing him at the Madison location on a Wednesday.

Mike Little in New Hebron, Ms – May 23, 2018
Unfortunately, I severely injured my hip playing D1 college sports, and had a very complicated and recurring injury. I had 3 hip surgeries and I'm only in my mid 20s. I could not have asked for a better doctor than Dr. O'mara. He's the only doctor I've ever seen that sits down and doesn't leave the room until all your questions are answered and you are comfortable. I am 100% confident in Dr. O'mara. His awesome bedside manner is an added bonus. His nursing staff is fabulous as well.
