I, my family and especially my father-in law have no clue what the previous review is talking about. I write it off to the stress and emotional strain that cancer places on us. Dr. O'Reilly is a supreme professional who has dedicated her career to dealing with the deadliest of cancers. She saved my life! Yes it's difficult to get an appointment but it's also difficult to buy the new Tesla. Her staff is superb, attentive, and extremely helpful. This is life and death and the odds are remarkably improved when you go to Memorial and have one of its best Oncologists. She's not at all cold, she's busy! Her sweet Irish brogue takes getting used to but she makes sure you understand what's going on and her staff nurses always follow up. This is simple. You want to go to a place who has doctors that are not guessing! Know exactly what's going on. I love this doc! Cancer hates her. But as is true with everything in life nothing is garanteed, but a great fighter is nothing without his great trainer.

My uncle had pancreatic cancer, and she was his physician. She seemed excited initially to have him as a patient because he met the requirements of a clinical trial. When the clinical trial did not appear to be working for him, she told him that he could either just continue with chemo or "do nothing." By saying that, his hopes were completely shattered. That was definitely a very chilling statement. She has to find a better way with words because that left him as well as my family demoralized. She also is overly inundated with patients, so I really don't think she spent enough time with him. I do think she is a very smart and capable doctor, but we just did not have the best experience with her.

What a horrible doctor who is as cold as ice. Very sorry, looking back that we stayed under her care. Not sure she's even an oncologist. On one of her experiments to make her statistics and data good. Didn't give a rats behind about the patient. What a nightmare. Never cared about the patient. Go to anyone else for pancreatic. If i could have given a zero instead of ones I would.

Dr O'Reilly is a graduate of Trinity College in Dublin< Ireland , She is not a board certified oncologist either in Ireland or the US. She professes to be an expert in oncology...reality is she is a marketer of herself and touts being highlighted in Castle+Connolly's 100 Best Doctors..which is merely a popularity contest amongst doctors...the doctors are the ones that rate eachother. There is no feedback from patients or a look at success and failure of her treatment. Cold, uncaring demeanor....she enjoys talking about giving talks at professional meetings. Stay away from this very strangely odd woman.

A Teaching doctor
Doctor O'Reilly has a pleasant demeanor and is know as a "Great Doctor" in Sloan Kettering by those around her. She will not spend as much time with patient as most other doctors but she is thorough and knowledgeable. To me, she seems so driven to teach her young interns around her that it affects the family of patients with cancer. When final stages of Cancer takes its toll, she will send her interns to do most of contact with dying patient to give young docs experience and teach them. This is a terrible feeling as if the patient is being used as a medical exhibit. A good person dying of cancer does not need to be "observed" by up to six people at a time to learn. The patient needs his/her doctor by their side more than interns. In my opinion , she is a very good doctor who is so driven to teach it affects her support.

If I could have given a zero I would have. Had to wait 2 weeks to get results of test. Totally disinterested in my moms care. This was a crisis for my family and she was extremely cold and had no bedside manner. One of the worst sorry we were in an experimental study, too much suffering.

EXPERIENCE WAS CHILLING....everything said was prefaced by God Willing...ie., the chemotherapy may be effective, God willing...very little time spent with patient..even though dr was consistently late...never called to see how patient was after having emergency treatment and hospitalization...
