Dr O'Neill is always prepared to answer any questions regarding my health and treatment plan in a way I can clearly understand. His dedication to my better life makes me refocus to stay on track and not give up.


I have had HF since 2009. This was the first time I saw Dr. O'Neill. We talked about future medical needs. Dr. O'Neill asked me questions which by the way was very thorough concerning my issues and I told him it was hard to give him answers. I told him my symptoms came on over a short period,but I was able to ride the stationary bike for 1 hour with no shortness of breath and still was dizzy with ringing in my ears. Dr. O'Neill is a good and knowledgeable Physician.


We normally see Dr. Jao, but Dr. O'neil was quite good. We saw him when I was in the hospital. it was a good visit.


The dr. explains to us about treatment and medications.


I never feel controlled or dictated to by Dr O'Neill with my medical care and treatment plans; I trust his expertise and am provided with available choices in my recovery process and feedback on each one as far as my personal benefits or negative issues to watch for. Mental care as well as heart care are both important to me.


I feel very fortunate to have Dr. O'Neill handling my cardiac situation. He's apparently very knowledgable...and he's an excellent listener!


Finally felt like I got answers to all my questions.


Always takes time to explain medicinal concerns and included me in treatment decisions best suited to my individual health care needs.


I was very pleased with every aspect of this visit!


Dr O'Neill has always been professional in appearance and conduct, courteous and considerate with patient and family interactions, intelligent and easily approachable with patient health concerns or questions


Dr. O'Neill is the best, what else can I say. No matter how bad I feel I always feel better after I see him.


Dr. McNeill is the first Dr. I saw in the Heart Failure Clinic among others. He seems to have my best interest at heart and I always leave feeling as if I am stronger and more hopeful. At first he was totally professional and stoic and since my way of handling my fear is to be sarcastic and silly I was unsure as to how we would get along. Needless worry, when at last he came back with a snappy one word or two word answer that made me laugh loudly, I knew he saw right through me. I sincerely hope that Dr. McNeill will be with me as long as I need treatment for this failure and for any other person with heart failure. He called me about a trial study and I volunteered. Recently, he let me know that should I not received the implant and will not know until November, that there is a possibility a new and different trial study could be ready to start at that time. I have agreed that I would do that study as well should I have not received. I believe that I would volunteer for any study Dr. McNeill recommends because I believe he would not allow me to do something that would not be in my best interest.
