Here is what our patients have to say:

Dr O really listened and answered my questions.

Dr O is very encouraging and he always greets my husband and myself. He gives eye contact and genuinely listens with his whole attention. Dr Orndorff and his team are more than care providers, they are caring providers above and beyond.

Every aspect, from the first meeting, through surgery and follow up visits were great. The surgery center was the best I've ever seen. Thank you for giving my back back to me.
