Dr. O'Connor is a horrible doctor. I was told by other female patients to be careful around him. Boy were they right. Stay clear.

Horrible Doctor. Did an adult tonsillectomy on me, told me it may take up to 2 weeks to heal (told me he went down really deep into my muscle) I am a rather tough with pain but this recovery has been excruciatingly painful. He gave me a 6 day supply of pain medicine and cut me off told me that was enough. I still have a while to go with recovery. Treated me like a drug addict! I have NEVER been dependant on drugs or abused drugs. I am left in excruciating pain and offended. I will never return!
