Dr. O'Donovan has done three surgeries for me. Very extensive tumor removal, bypass, rectum removal etc. He's fast, efficient, caring, when things are going right. When you get to the point that you are too far gone (terminal), he washed his hands of me and basically told me to go home and accept my fate. Not sure if he really got the cancer out each time like he said he did. Told me conflicting things (I made notes, so I know he said them). He has made some diagnostic errors that may have sealed my fate. Go to him only in the early stages of your cancer and for straightforward surgeries. If you have multiple recurrences, be careful. Do not rely on his interpretation of PET scans - always get a second opinion from another surgeon to be sure at EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. We trusted him, and it may prove to be a mistake. Another surgeon took one look at my PET scan and correctly diagnosed me, when Dr. O'Donovan did not. Or, if he did, he did not tell me. Either way, it was a shock to see a tumor that was apparently clear on the scan. GET A SECOND OPINION EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
