Dr. O’CONNOR is “SIMPLY THE BEST,” Experience is in her corner next to her ability to problem solve with data supported facts. A soft demeanor with a serious bend towards excellent medicine outcomes. She is “Smart” beyond her years, respectful and kind. Listens intently to “you” the patient, and makes you and your cancer the priority. There is no one better! Have been a patient for ten years and I believed her then and now!

I researched Dr. O'Connor's qualifications and reviews. Because of what I found, I trusted and followed her advice for my treatment of a very aggressive breast cancer. I found her to be very capable, and easy to communicate with. She always listened to my concerns and explained why treatments were recommended.

Dr. O’Conner is the best oncologist. She saved my life. I was with another oncologist and she took me under her wing. Saved my life and gave me the best quality of life. Treats me so kindly and compassionate. Takes the time to explain everything and is so knowledgeable. You know she really cares. When I went to her I had a stent in my kidney. I was so sick from that. She sent me to Dr Guru Director of Urology. Dr Guru tested my kidney. My kidney was functioning normally. I didn’t need that stent at all. Dr. O’Conner was God sent to me. She is a wonderful Oncologist. I can’t Thank her enough for everything she has done for me. Being very patient too. Her staff is the best!!

Dr. O’Conner is a very talented oncologist who is also very compassionate. She always takes the time to answer and questions and inquire as to how you are doing during treatment. This is despite the fact that she works in an extremely busy clinic with upwards of 50 patients a day. I would absolutely recommend Dr. O’Connor.

I’m not fully satisfied with Dr. O’Conner she’s always seems like she is in a hurry when I’ve had appointments with her PA was more helpful than she was. I’ve had numerous scans she has never truly explained what they are and the results I’ve had to seek other help on understanding the results of my scans.

Dr. O’Connor came highly recommended by one of her former patients. I am thrilled that I waited a few days to get an appointment (she was out-of-town at a conference) because she was fabulous. She explained everything to me very clearly, which made it very easy for me to make the decisions I needed to make.

Most times the doctor was not available and when she was she just wanted to talk about next treatments even though my treatments were completed. I was interested in celebrating the fact that my cancer treatments were complete and enjoying the moment of exhilation and relief ! Unfortunately, the doctor took my moment of celebration by not focusing on this but instead other treatments or medication that she was selling (felt like I was getting up-selled into more medical treatments,
