I have never in my life met such a caring wonderful doctor. From his skill to his bedside manner. He listens and he understands. He saved my daughter's life when she was in a horrific car accident. I know in my heart if it were not for him and his fast thinking to put a balloon in her body to stop her bleeding she would be dead. Thank You Dr. O'Connor III, I will never forget what you did for my daughter.

Nancy in Port Charlotte, FL – Jan 18, 2017
I had to have thoracic spine surgery. The location of my problem was in a critical area of my thoracic spine. Dr. Plakas and Dr. Lin said they had a general surgeon on hand incase incision needed to be made bigger and/or if I would need a chest tube put in that Dr. O'Connnor was with them. This had been my sixth major spine surgery and as always I was told I could be paralyzed. Thank you to these very skilled, educated and patient care. I am doing better and once again, not paralyzed.
