I met Dr O'Reilly for the first time, arriving frightened, in pain and believing that my active life was over for good. An hour later I left with a smile on my face and hope in my heart. He offered empathy, understanding and encouragement. Very thorough, professional and unhurried - and I sensed a sense of humour. I cannot thank him enough and look forward to continuing treatment in his care and that of his team.

Dr. David O'Reilly is one of the most professional rheumatologist I’ve met. He is a great listener, asks the right questions, and is genuinely concerned about her patient’s well-being. He made my visit as comfortable as it possibly could. I’m very pleased with my choice to have Dr. David O'Reilly as my primary rheumatologist and I would definitely recommend him to everyone. Thank you so much!

My consultation with Dr David O’Reilly was very welcome and generally positive. He listened intently and acknowledged my comments and concerns before drawing his own conclusions. Some of the equipment was not working which was unfortunate so a full exam could not be given and I did feel that comments dismissing the possibility of Lyme arthritis out of hand were a little premature given the level of debilitating joint pain and stiffness in hips, hands and SI joint, experienced during bouts of symptoms. Overall though I was pleased with the consultation and felt that his assessment of soft tissue inflammation and probable neurological Lyme disease symptoms following my untreated tick bite, to be fair and appropriate.

A truly excellent consultant. We felt that David O’Reilly was able to address our concerns and explain clearly what was happening with my husbands arthritic condition. He talked openly to us about potential treatment options and what we might expect. His thorough examination and history taking are reassuring in that he will leave ‘no stone left unturned’ He has a lovely manner. He is very good at picking up th phone and prioritising you. He is an excellent listener, thinking beyond the consulting room. His evidenced empathy for situation and understanding of human emotion coupled with his extensive experience and knowledge make for a brilliant consultant. Thankyou.

Dr O'Reilly is always prompt in responding to my queries and concerns by email and over the phone; I really appreciate this. He is very helpful in his advice and in the clarity of his explanations. In clinic he is very thorough in his examinations and is willing to discuss general aspects of the condition and the benefits and disadvantages of the medication.

Dr O'Reilly took the time to listen to my story and to look at my scan results. He sought a second opinion on something that was in the MRI report. In addition, he took an interest in an unrelated injury and advised me to seek a second opinion on the injury and to have an ultrasound done. The ultrasound showed that my injury had been misdiagnosed and the fact that Dr O'Reilly picked up on this has probably saved me from doing permanent damage.

I had 2appointments recently with Dr O'Reilly and had my condition diagnosed at the first consultation. Everything was very carefully explained and a lot of time was taken. A second appointment was given very quickly and a regime established all carefully detailed. A follow up e- mail was gratefully and unexpectedly sent.I feel very confident going forward with the attention that I am receiving from him.
