Patient Comments (1)

I did not enjoy my experience with Dr. O'Malley. I did not like his attitude as soon as he walked into the room. He seemed as if he didn't want to be there. He leaned back on the stool very casually/arrogantly as I explained what had been going on with my knee. I felt he was fine with the diagnosis...more
