What People Say About Dr. James O'Mara, MD

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.

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.
