Dr. O\'Shea was very professional, reviewed preexisting lab results/xrays and discussed my current health concerns and recommended further tests (MRI) to complete his diagnosis. He answered all my questions and provided a plan of action dependent on test results expected from the MRI. All in all, a very good office visit.

Dr. O\'Shea did not even perform a physical examination of my area of concern. I expressed to him the pain I was in and the history of prior efforts to alleviate the pain (therapy, injections). He said, "I wish I knew what to tell you, but I don\'t." He never examined me or ordered any tests. In fact, I never even got up from the chair next to his desk during our visit. He made no effort to determine what was causing my pain or to help me to alleviate my pain. Only after I asked for a referral to another doctor did he provide that. My visit with him was a complete waste of time and utter disappointment.
