Trust Dr. O'Bannon completely. Never feel rushed when seeing him; his staff is exceptional. He continually goes beyond to find root causes of problems without ordering unnecessary tests/procedures; explains outcomes clearly in understandable language. Great sense of humor; never talks down to me or dismisses comments I make but gently will correct any misperceptions I may have or false conclusions I may make. One of the best physicians I have ever had treat me. I hope he never retires!
