What People Say About Dr. Lynn O'Connor, MD

My father had colon cancer twice. The first time his surgery was done by a doctor in a queens. That day of the surgery the doctor came out to the waiting room and said he's doing fine but he did see something that he questions it might be more cancerous. Why didn't he take it out at the time is a question I never asked. I trusted him. About 2 years later his cancer returned. Dr. O'Connor did his second surgery and continued to do a colonoscopy for him every year. He is 98 years old. Love Dr. O.

Dr O'Connor recommended a very serious surgery that would require a pretty intense recovery and was ready to book my surgery that day. I went for a second opinion with another surgeon that is top rated and found out I actually don't need surgery! Always be proactive and seek a 2nd opinion!

Dr. Lynn O’Connor is an extremely gifted doctor whose belief and devotion to her patients is a credit to her profession. I had been to several doctors over the years who unsuccessfully tried to solve my hemorrhoid issues. Upon meeting her initially, she was quite knowledgeable and thorough in her assessment of why it was such a dilemma. More than that, she surgically corrected the problem. Today I am fully healed, 100% pain free. I would definitely recommend her service. She is tremendous!

She is a compassionate, professional, excellent surgeon. I would recommend her to everyone I know . I had a 20 plus year history of diverticulitis and there was no doubt in my mind who was going to perform my surgery.

I would recommend dr. O'Connor; She spent a lot of time explaining the details of the procedure, and just as important what to expect at the hospital. She is a very detailed physician, leaves no stone unturned. Her office staff well versed in their process and always there for assistance. Same for the after hours service. the provider on call always called back with 1/2 hour. The surgery and process was what I expected. I listened carefully and if not understood asked again.
