Consultant Rheumatologist working at the West Suffolk Hospital and the BMI Hospital in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Dr O’Reilly is a great listener and gives each patient all the time they need. My only criticism would be he makes it very obvious when you arrive that he has no memory of previous consultations. This is always going to be a problem since the doctors see so many patients, but as he reminds himself from the computer screen exactly who you are and your previous history, he is inclined to ask some very basic questions that make you a little uneasy that he has forgotten everything about you ( even though you have seen him quite recently). I would be happy to sit quietly until he has read all the relevant information about me.
Dr David O’Reilly is an extremely understanding and caring Doctor. It was obvious from day one to me that he values his patients, his manners and tone of voice are very relaxing. He is clearly very knowledgeable in his field and is a massive asset to the NHS and the general public. During the small procedure that he carried out he explained every detail of what was happening, what he was doing but most importantly he oozed calmness. This to me was very reassuring. Communication is extremely easy whether by phone or email. I honestly do not believe that Dr David O’Reilly could improve on his service to me. He is extremely punctual, polite, caring, intelligent and always available.
Provided a clear description of his diagnosis and the recommended course of treatment, along with the potential outcomes and known risks. I was given the appropriate time to digest and agree to this and I felt we jointly agreed this was the correct approach.
Dr. O’Reilly was attentive, thorough and took time to listen, to carry out a thorough examination and to explain exactly what his conclusions were and why he had arrived at them. He kindly gave options for further treatment, was reassuring and was happy to follow up my case at his local clinic. In short, Dr. O’Reilly is exactly what I often miss about the medical profession - an old - fashioned, listening doctor with a great personal touch. Thoroughly impressed.
