Excellent neurologist who went into politics. I thought my brain needed a full time neurologist so I changed to another physician in the practice. Both are excellent.

I have been to see Dr. O'Bannon twice and will continue to make appointments with him. He is very thorough and referred me for additional tests, which he explained to me fully. Dr. O'Bannon explains your issues so that you can understand and definitely makes you feel that he cares about you and your issues. Years ago he also treated my Father, and spent time meeting with the family to explain my father's condition and things we could do to help him. Again he was extremely caring, professional and helpful. I have never been to another Doctor who is willing to spend the time with you and explain things so fully and in terms you can understand as Dr. O'Bannon does.

Dr. O’Bannon takes the time to listen , the wait is very short if any. Sometimes I go back early and the second wait in the examination room is short as well. His staff is friendly and helpful. In between visits all of my questions or requests are handled professionally and speedily.

Dr. O'Bannon is thorough in his diagnosis and makes you feel heard when other doctors have brushed you aside. He makes himself more available for his patients than any other I've encountered and I can't help but wish he was still my doctor.
