Dr. O'Hara is always patient and willing to discuss concerns, however we were admitted to the hospital for high potassium levels and felt that the doctors could have provided a little more information on what we could expect or do concerning the situation other than --- "The choice is up to you. You can keep coming back here for treatments like this or make other choices." What, go home and die? It was very frightening. I was placed on a low potassium diet. How low?UofU Patient March 11, 2015
Dr. O'Hara took extra time to answer all my concerns and made sure I understood everything that we spoke about!UofU Patient February 11, 2015
it was not clear to me why continued follow up was needed at Huntsman when I have an oncologist I see regularly in my home town.UofU Patient January 13, 2015
Seemed like a wasted visit for the staff to wait an hour and then be in with the doctor for about 2 minutes and a wasted copay for me. I would have been find having a phone call about this if that was the case.UofU Patient November 18, 2014

I have confidence in DR. O'Hara. He thorougly explained the diagnosis and treatment options and decision needs to me. Some of these were difficult for me to accept and he took the time and gave me the help I needed to make the appropiate decisions. I have every confidence that he will keep me alive until transplant.
