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.
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.
I've been seeing Dr. O'Donnell for nearly 25 years. He takes the time to listen and cares about his patients. The staff is very friendly and makes the visits easy and straightforward.
