Dr. Debra A Oconnor has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Doctor O'Connor is the best doctor I have ever had. There was a comment on here that she was rude and apathetic. Are you see serious? She is one of the sweetest most nurturing doctors I have ever met. She is genuinely concerned about her patients. Always being extra through and even if you have to do 20 different tests she is determine to find out what's wrong. She always calls you back and spends time talking you through everything. She used to be in the city, but she moved to the Suburbs. Even though it takes me almost an hour to see her now it's well worth it. Especially when it comes to my health. She is a great doctor, my whole family sees her. She is like a second mom. I even invited her to my wedding. If you want a doctor who cares and who will do whatever it takes to find out what's wrong without shoving a pill down your throat, then see Dr. OCONNOR.
Dr O'Connor is genuinely caring. She listens for as long as you want to talk :-) She doesn't try to rush you and when she prescribes you medication she doesn't make you keep coming every month for refills like every doctor I have ever went to. She also cares about prescribing you something you can afford versus prescribing the new latest expensive drug out there. I had a dermatologist appt today and the doctor must of spent at the most 5 minutes talking to me. She asked very little questions and showed no concern. Many doctors I have seen in the past 20+ years have all been like this except Dr. O'Connor. I would recommend her to everyone. No matter where I have moved in the past 10 years, no matter how far I have to go...I'm always going to continue to make the drive to see her.
Dr. O'Connor has been my primary for nearly 10 years. When she moved from Lincoln Park, I stayed with her though it meant longer drive to get to see her. She is very thorough and caring. She calls to follow up after visits and with test results promptly. My only minor issue is that sometimes there is a wait to see the doctor. But knowing Dr. O'Connor, I realize that it's because she takes her time with her patients, so I don't mind. I bring a book to read - and she is worth the wait.
