Apparently the practice sold out to a larger organization. i needed an appointment and started calling on a Wednesday morning at a little after 10 AM. Still holding at 11:25. On another phone called back and chose options for doctors. It was immediately picked up but they refused to make an appointment, Must now use call center. I'm done with them

I have been under Dr. O'Hara's care for over 15 years and would recommend him to anyone who needs pain management services. He takes whatever time is needed to explain all options available prior to scheduling procedures. He is not one of those doctors who schedules procedures just to make money, he genuinely cares for his patients. All of his staff is extremely helpful and professional too (most notably for me is Regina)

O'Hara is a nice guy and is definitely skilled in what he does. Unfortunately my lumbar epidural didn't work because I have severe stenosis. Instead of suggesting another epidural just to make money, he talked to me about other options and referred me to another doctor. He has helped one of my friends tremendously and he has no pain anymore. I highly recommend him because I feel he is competent and won't do unnecessary procedures on you. He takes the time out to answer all your questions.

Dr. O'Hara is my favorite doctor. He is knowledgeable and caring, and is so gentle it's amazing. I have had several epidurals without the need of anesthesia due to the way he handles patients. The nurses who work with him in surgery also think he is the best doctor they work with. I wouldn't let anyone else take care of my pain. His assistant Allison is also so caring it's a pleasure to deal with her. I actually enjoy going to his Freehold office due to the staff and everyone's professionalism.
