It took three years of going to different doctors telling me I was too young for Parkinsons's until I was referred to DR O'Connell and she checked me out and ordered a datscan to confirm Parkinson's . She is leaving and going to Penn State Hershey med and I will be following her.

Dr. made her diagnosis of Parkinson's disease based on simple observation of my Mother's motor skills. Too bad she never tested her thyroid hormone levels, i.e., T3, T4, TSH.My Mother had had part of her thyroid gland removed several years prior....did Dr. ask? No.Many old age services in the U.K. now do thyroid functions tests routinely in the initial assessment.Seven years after diagnosis, my Mother suffered from mild dementia as well...all she really needed was Levothyroxine, not Requip or Sinemet.
where did she go?

I have been seeing Dr. O'Connell for 3 years now, for MS treatment and she was so wonderful...she understands, cares and always showed the utmost concern. she left suddenly...what happened? PNNI won't tell, they don't want patients to "jump ship" because I would if I knew where she went. 1st appointment since she left was a complete disaster with new doctor.

I love this doctor. She has been treating me for Cervical Dystonia for almost 3 years now with wonderful results! The only problem is she has left the PNNI practice and I cannot find her!

No attention to health record evident. Was distant, made no recommendations in treatment. Found her to be useless, waste of our time. Needs to not see people she is either unable or unwilling to help. could have at least recommended another doctor - but that would have required 'attention'.

Dr. O'Connell is one of those doctors that everyone WISHES that they had. She is sympathetic, caring, and optimistic. Even when I'm feeling fine and at her office for just a routine check-up, I always leave feeling better than when I arrived! I highly recommend Dr. O'Connell.
