He is very attentive to your concerns. He does not push surgery on you and gives you all you options and then discuss the pros and cons. He takes his time explaining your xrays and makes sure you can see the damage and understand the solution, He is very thorough! I highly recommend him.

Great experience. Answered all of my questions and happy to go into detail when asked for further information. He didn’t push for surgery as only option which is appreciated. Referred to Dr. O’Connell by a surgeon friend of mine and quite pleased with him.

DR O'Connell is great, extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I was referred to him through a close friend after having a horrible experience with another ortho doctor/surgeon. My husband and I loved Dr O'Connell from day 1 and he took the time to answer all of our questions and got me results quickly.

He does not take time to explain. He did a steroid injection in my knee. I almost came off the table in pain. I limped for over 3 weeks. It hurt when I walked in. But I was walking. Gave a second injection with zero relief. Went to another orthopedic surgeon. Had a 3rd injection in a totally different part of my knee. NO PAIN!! Do not recommend this doctor. Even his diagnosis was off. Glad I did not move forward with a knee surgery he suggested. I wondered if the bad injections were a set up.
