I had a wonderful experience. He makes the visits personal, listens to my concerns and looks for answers for me. I am very comfortable around him and I feel he has my best interest at heart.


Very thoughtful, caring,and professional. Explains things so patient can understand.




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!
