Two Stars

Dr Orourke and his nurse Eileen have nasty attitudes. Very minimum followup after brain surgery. Im still having issues but I plan to look elsewhere for help.

The best

I had 3 surgeries in 7 months with Dr. O'Rourke and was thoroughly impressed with him. He was never offended when questioned, direct, thorough, and attentive. He was business first but never rude or abrupt. I have an anaplastic astrocytoma and feel he went over and above what other doctors would do. He saved my life.

Spinal surgery

I can't speak to Dr. O'Rourke's personality or bedside manner. I was only in his company for maybe 10 min while conscious, he was nice and professional for those 10 min I actually spoke to him. I will say however, when woke up from surgery I had full use of my arm. I am recovering at a rate faster then statistics state I should be. From my experience the man has awesome surgical skill and lets face it that's what's really important. I don't need to be babied, coddled and hugged when I see a Dr. I need a diagnosis, what is going to fix it and the prognosis, he gave me all of that. I had a condition that could have affected my life. The man fixed me up. He wouldn't know me if he tripped over me, however, I'll never forget him.

One Star

Once I had my brain surgeries (2) Dr. O no longer wanted to see me and advised me to see my family doctor with any issues I may have. My family doctor was not trained or experienced in neuro to give me any info. Therefore I went to a neurologist, which was a nightmare.
