    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Best primary care physician I have engaged with in my 68 years of life.

Primary care physicians amongst others things are supose to look at all of your health problems, as well as any specific health problem they are treating. Unfortunately I have a very ongoing and complicated medical history. As I shared this with Dr. O'Donnell he response was " good I like complicated cases. He takes whatever time is necessary to provide through and competent care. I was a health care professional for 42 years and never meet anyone that compares to Dr. O'Donnell nor in my own use of the medical system have I found anyone more genuinely concerned about your health as he is. I do not get the feeling about how long it is taking and how much money he could be making if you did not take up so much of his time as what I have sometimes felt/sensed sometimes with other medical professionals. MY first appointment lasted about 2 hours. In my opinion he is a model for all primary care providers *****

Very Pleased, Now

I would recommend Dr. O’Donnell to friends and family. My wife has seen him twice and she agrees with me that he is an excellent doctor. But our relationship with his staff got off to a very rocky start. As many others have described, my first 1st appointment and interactions with the front desk and other staff was unbelievable. I arrived early to fill in the new patient documents. They took my name and gave me the paperwork, which I finished and turned in. After 40 minutes waiting I asked how much longer it would be. The same person I had spoken to twice again asked my name, looked at her computer and told me to wait just a few more minutes. About 10 minutes later a different woman came out to the waiting room, asked for my name and birth date, looked at her clipboard and then told me I had to make an appointment, because they don’t take walk-in patients. I told her I had an appointment which was made for me by the receptionist at another of my doctors office, while I was standing there, who wrote the info on an appointment card, and verified everything before hanging up. But I still had to make another appointment. When I arrived for that appointment I had to fill in the paperwork again which was annoying enough but it got worse. After being taken to an exam room a PA came in and asked why I was there. After telling her she apologized but because this was my first visit I had to see Dr. O’Donnell himself and he was not there. She said I should have told the person who made the appointment that this was my first visit. After telling her my story I told her I would not be coming back and left. Later that evening I got a call from Dr. O’Donnell himself who sincerely apologized for everything and asked me to come back the next day. I’m glad I did because Dr. O’Donnell turned out to be just what I was looking for, to replace my previous GP, for 27 years, who had recently retired. Since then, it’s been 16 months now, I have not had any problems with his staff.

Horrible Office Staff!!!

Dr. O'Donnell is fine, however getting an appointment with him is a monumental task only surpassed by trying to follow up regarding a referral. His front desk staff is the worst I have ever encountered. They are EXTREMELY RUDE and provide inaccurate information and do not follow up. Do not select Dr. O'Donnell as a PCP if you have an insurance plan requiring referrals for specialists. This is really too bad because he seems like a good doctor, but dealing with the front desk staff makes it not worth it!!

I like Dr. O'Donnell very much. He's very easy to talk to, and approaches delicate issues with good humor. His office runs very efficiently -- never any long waits for a scheduled appointment.
