To previous reviewer--Dr. O'Connell is bound by certain practices because of where he works (and who he works for), not because of his personal policies. He has been my PCP for 5 years now and he has always provided me excellent care.

Dr. O'Connell seeks to charge his patients as much as possible. Duke Medicine allows their doctors to double-bill their patients for office visits. The more you talk with Dr. O'Connell, the more you will pay. If you go for an annual physical and discuss any of your health issues, you will be charged for an annual physical AND an office visit, since according to him, talking is not part of an annual physical. If you go for a specific health reason and talk about other health issues, you will be billed for 2 separate office visits. Unbelievable! Do yourself a favor and try another doctor!
