The visit was for my wife Carolyn. The nurse that initially checked her was very thorough and caring. Dr O’ Bannon knows Carolyn very well as she has been his patient for five years. He extensively checked her and his concern was evident. With the medicines that he has prescribed, Carolyn is doing much better with her trembling problem.

Dr. John O'Bannon is one of the most professional and knowledgeable medical providers I have ever dealt with. He takes time to listen to neurolgical symptoms, and even more time to explain the cause of neurological issues. One of the best physicians around!!!!

I hate doctors and doctor visits, but Dr O'Bannon is the exception to the rule. He has an amazing bedside manner, and when I am there for a sick of well check up, I feel as if I am just talking to family. He sits down and listens to you, not guiding you for what he wants to hear or expects to hear. He never wastes your time and cares about you as a patient, I never feel like a number. The office is inviting and run efficiently with little to no waiting and friendly staff. I highly recommend him!

With his years of experience, friendly manner and extensive knowledge of medicine and particularly neurology, Dr. O'Bannon is one of the finest physicians practicing in Richmond. After listening to my symptoms and a thorough exam, he was able to suggest remedies and also a referral to another specialist. His confidence put me at ease after my visit and following up on his suggestion, I was able to find much needed relief from my discomforting symptoms. Thank you, Dr. O'Bannon for your care and expertise. Sincerely, Judith Brush

Dr O,Bannon completely explained my diagnosis and answered my questions. He ordered additional testing and told me why he did and what he expected to find. I left his office with clear understanding of what steps would be taken.

I have never been blessed to receive medical care from a more well rounded physician than Dr. O'Bannon. His skill in diagnosis and treatment is unsurpassed. Furthermore, his kindness, empathy, guidance and relaxed manner are qualities I am confident patients will find reassuring. One leaves the appointment feeling he/she has more than a physician, but also an adviser and a friend. From his assistant Debbie to his nurse to all of the supporting staff, I have always found their care to be thorough and uplifting.
