Very polite

I saw Dr. O’Mara for my first visit to ROC yesterday. He was very polite and took the time to answer my questions, and explained things in a manner that I was able to understand. He did not suggest any unnecessary treatment and was able to determine that a cortisone injection would be the first logical step. I’m very comfortable recommending this doctor to others and will not hesitate to ask for his help in the future.

Talented surgeon

Excellent physician. Extremely well educated and talented surgeon. Highly recommend. Willing to take time to answer questions.

Great doctor

Great doctor- appointment at 8:00 am, out at 8:15. Very satisfied with treatment!
