Dr O'Connell is definitely dedicated to find the core of the issue. He will order tests necessary, and he himself will call you back if you need to leave him a message. He pays attention to what you say and takes notes. You can tell him the stangest symptoms you having, he won't look at you like you are crazy.

Dr. O'Connell is a miracle in my life. The neurological pain was unbearable. It was to the point where I was seriously considering ending my life. However, a friend recommended him to me into making an appointment. Dr. O'Connell listened, administered a neurological test, analyzed the tests, and with each test he explained why he was doing it. Finally, he explained his findings to me. Then, the miracle! No more pain! I am looking forward to living a long time. Thank you, Dr. O'Connell.

He took the time to listen to my issues. He asked me to explain my symptoms in detail, instead of me just giving him medical terms of what I thought I had. He took what I had to say seriously and set me up for the appropriate procedures to check what may be causing my symptoms.
