Dr. O 'Donnell is a great doctor. She is very knowledgableFor general concerns and always investigates things looksInto conditions with appropriate testing and referralsTo specialists. She is a very caring doctor who listens to her patients. staff is wonderful and courteous . I have recommended her to several people!
Dr. O'Donnell missed a serious medical condition even though I was continuously making appointments with her about my back pain, and speaking with nurses over the phone. She said that I may have had a pulled muscle, that I was addicted to pain medication, and then sent me away from her office with no medication, referrals, or advice. I was not, and am not an addict, but I was in serious pain. I was seen by another doctor (not affiliated with her office) only a week later, and it was discovered that I had a ruptured disc in my back and NEEDED to have surgery. The hospital told me I was at a high risk of being paralyzed by the size of the ruptured pieces that were pinching my nerves. During surgery large hardened masses were also found on my discs that had to be picked at and scraped off. It was obvious to the surgeon that I had back problems that were left untreated for several years. He was surprised that I lived in pain for that long. I was very offended by Dr. O'Donnell's addiction remark. She did nothing to help me when I was in serious pain and needed medical help. I am also bothered by the fact that she didn't send me for an MRI or refer me to a specialist to see if there was something wrong. Also, if she thought that I was a real addict, why did she turn me away without any information or referrals to drug/addiction specialists or programs? What will she do if she ever comes across a real addict? She did not listen to me or believe that my pain was real- which it was. I had surgery only a few weeks after being turned away by her.
