Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Killian O'Connell is a breath of fresh air in the industry. For so long my wife was bounced around from here to there with doctors who lacked the ability to use critical thinking skills. Dr. O'Connell uses a systematic approach and finds what is best for each individual person.

He was strongly recommended to me by a good friend. Getting the first appointment took a while, but I've been very happy with the care and love how everything is carefully explained to me

Doctor is ok. Office is TERRIBLE. Very little to no communication between staff. They never return phone calls. I had to call and ask about an issue three times and each time no one knew what I was talking about or had passed the message on to another staff member.
