 |  Dismisses Elderly Patients symptoms  |  show details
Sep 18th, 2013

Dr. O'Connell has a tendency to dismiss symptoms of his elderly patients by saying "that's what happens in old age". By dismissing symptoms my father complained about for years he missed the chance to perhaps save my father from a rare form of cancer in his intestines. It wasn't until my father changed doctors that the new doctor immediately ordered tests, found my father had a blocked small intestine which ended up having to be surgically removed. Tests showed that he had stage 3 tumor.
