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.
*Dr. O'Neill has a doctoriate degree, I have an associates degree; yet he courteously explains my treatments and conditions as simply as a childs bedtime story. That's impressive!
He is a wonderful doctor. He seems to know how to take care of me and all of my problems. I would reccommend him to anyone.
Dr O'Neill puts up with my grouchiness and I appreciate him
Dr O'Neill is incredible, intelligent, patient, detailed, has excellent bedside manner, provides platinum level patient care and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to everyone in need of serious heart care.
I respect and adore my transplant team! Very professional!
Always excellent from Heart Failure Clinic doctors.
