I was recommended to Dr O'Leary, but was extremely disappointed. I am a doctor and was expecting at least some attention and follow-up, but despite multiple call requests over multiple months he still never got back to be. He never explained my condition even though he insisted I needed to get a whole bunch of new x-rays so he can better evaluate. He never even spoke to me after the radiologist read the films...assuming he even spoke to the radiologist. I'm very disappointed in his office.
My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma which caused his C4 in his neck to desintegrate and collapse. Dr. O'Leary saved his life at the time and prevented him from being paralysed. After 2 surgeries within a 7 day period, he eventually had 90% motion of his neck. He is an exceptional skilled surgeon. No Doctor near were we lived would even attempt do touch his neck. They suggested we go to the Hospital of Special Surgery. Wonderful bedside manor and explains things so you can understand

Dr. O'Leary has operated on me twice for a cervical spine injury. I think he is a wonderful doctor, surgeon, and person! He has a great bedside manner and listens to your concerns. I have nothing bad to say about him!

Dr O'Leary is a superlative and a spectacularly gifted and brilliant surgeon. I have sent my patients and my own mother to him. Everyone has been thrilled with the results. I myself feel excedingly fortunate: the result of my 4.5-hour back lumbar fusion by Dr O?Leary has been the complete restoration of my physical comfort and vigor. It was a blessing of God that he operated on me. My pain was so intense before surgery that could not stand it. For four years now I have been totally pain free!
After having 6 neck surgeries, I was recommended by surgeon to Dr Oleary. I can not say enough how this man has helped. Thorough, compassionate,and a master at what he does. I would recommend in a heartbeat. Has a staff to match.
