Jackson, MS |
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.

Dr. O'Mara was helpful in letting me know what was wrong and how to fix and friendly and didn't keep you wanting long times like in most doctors offices.
