I saw Dr. O’Neal for recurring shoulder pain. I’ve already done multiple rounds of PT for it with little to no relief, so I’m happy that he’s sending me for an MRI and not wasting any more time. I’m confident he’ll be able to help me.

I was pleased with Dr. O’ Neal. He explained my issue and gave a cortisone injection which has given me relief . I was also pleased to learn that we have in common an association with A doctor who did my knee replacement 6 years ago before we moved to this area . If I have any more knee problems, I will go back to Dr. O’Neal.

Dr. O'Neal is compassionate and patient. He listens to my concerns and takes measures to make sure my pain is under control. He encourages me when I need it the most. I've never left my appointments with doubts. He responds to portal messages and if needed will call me himself. I recommend Dr. O'Neal for your shoulder care.

Dr. O'Neal took the time to know and understand my status even before he walked in the room. He listened to both my injury status, and equally important, my activity expectations. He explained the issues in a way that was both easy to understand, and in line with my activity needs. He was clear not only on what he knows, but what he doesn't know. He's very knowledgeable, professional, and an excellent communicator.

I saw Dr O’Neil for concerns I had with my left knee. He is very personable. He asked all kinds of questions to better understand what I was experiencing. X-rays were taken and reviewed with me. He explained to me his concerns that he had and explained that we needed to take this a step further and get an MRI to see things an X-ray would not reveal. Leaving my appt I knew what he saw and didn’t see, depending on the MRI, my options available after that and exercises that I can do at home in the interim. Dr O’Neil did my ACL surgery back in 2016 and I have to say, that knee feels great! He’s a great doctor to work with!

Appointment was very short. He did not want to send me for an MRI. Said I may have a small tear in my rotator cuff and prescribed PT. Went to another Dr. and had an MRI. I have a complete tear of the rotator cuff.
