I saw Dr O'Reilly on Thursday morning with pain I had been experiencing since June in my back and legs he arranged a MRI scan the same day which resulted in my admission to hospital as a emergency and operated on Friday morning On the day of my MRI scan my family could not be contacted which resulted in Dr O'Reilly taking me straight to the hospital himself,today he has called at home to check on my progress, I cannot speak highly enough of how I was treated by Dr O'Reilly which I thank him very much

I was immediately put at ease and treated as a person and not just a patient. What is more the treatment I received seems to be actually working. Thus I am seriously considering building Dr O'Reilly a shrine to be placed outside the Nuffield Hospital.

I cannot speak too highly of Dr O’Reilly. I entered his consulting room and was immediately at ease. He was considerate and caring. He explained my condition expertly and provided me with the correct information regarding management and medication should the need arise in the future. His follow up call and email were also a testament to his professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr O’Reilly and will contact him immediately if I need his help.
