Husband was conservatively MISTREATED by another neurosurgeon for nearly eight years (she insisted she be the one to monitor his brain condition and did his back fusion) and pushed off to pain management when my husband went to her for treatment due to worsening symptoms; upon investigation by Dr. O'Rourke, was told his condition could be treated and help with his quality of life versus the OTHER physician that had my husband walking around like a ticking time bomb (always wondering if every day he waked up, would this be the day he was going to die?). Good bedside manner, yes he is direct but I don't want information sugar-coated; I want a confident doctor that doesn't talk down to us and will answer our questions. Showed us my husband's diagnostic images and went into detail about his meningoencephalocele and what he was going to do from a surgical standpoint. Thank you, Dr. O'Rourke, God Bless you!
Dr O'Rourke is, by far, the BEST doctor I've ever seen. He has the best bedside manner of any doctor. He is kind, compassionate, thorough, honest, etc. He comes into the exam room with the computer, sits down next to you, and goes through the images and explains them. He never rushes you and takes the time to answer your questions. If I ever need to have another surgery (my first surgery was at UPenn in Philly), I would absolutely go back to Dr O'Rourke. If every doctor were like him, the world would be a better place!
Dr. O'Rourke did emergency brain surgery on my mother and father last June(2012). He saved both of their lives one grueling surgery after another. They both have healed tremendously and look amazing. I was told it usually takes about 12 minutes to stitch up a trauma after a surgery and it took him 2 hours to stitch up my dad due to how horrible his injuries were and by the looks of him now you would never know! His scarring is so little compared to what you would expect for the injuries he endured. My mother just recently was able to completely get her mesh/titanium rods removed by Dr. O'Rourke. You wouldn't even know anything happened to her unless she told you. He is compassionate, kind, and extremely thorough. He answered all of our questions in detail and is extremely honest. I would trust him with my life and owe him so much for saving my parents lives and can't thank him enough.
