Horrible experience with her.

Dr O'Malley is a fantastic doctor. She has been taking care of our daughter's hip dysplasia since she was an infant and performed her surgery. We feel very confident of the care she is providing our daughter. We would highly recommend her to anyone with children with a similar medical issue

I was looking for medical expertise on how we should proceed with my daughters care and was instead asked what I wanted to do which isn't helpful

[...] has been a difficult case for Dr. O'Malley. I have heard "I dont know" come from her several times, but she has never given up and still works with us on what the best treatment for my son is. She listens to us as parents and takes our ideas into consideration and consistently has open communication with us and treats us with respect. Dr. O'Malley has been a true blessing not only to my son, but also to my family.
