Patient Comments (2)

My reviews continue to disappear. I'll make it brief. This office gave me false information about Dr O'Neal's credentials and practice areas, performed illegal insurance billing, and violated my legal parental rights. The practice manager is arrogant and ignorant of the laws.

Dr. O'Neal is extremely caring and professional. He always spends a great deal of time with me. He spends time explaining what he is doing and why. He is keeping a watchful eye on my eyes.
