Excellent...Mary is, knowledgeable, and caring.

January 13, 2017

I was referred for recurrent UTI's. I just got the feeling she didn't really think my problem was a concern and not sure why I was there. She was nice but would perfer to see a physician when referred to a specialist.

Off topic a bit: I would hope that my comments (as you'll note, very positive) get to the personnel involved. I realize that you might use this information for evaluations (raises, I hope?), yet to me it is essential they know of the highest regard in which they are held.

December 12, 2016

Visiting the urology clinic is always a great experience. I saw Mary on this visit and she is awesome!

December 11, 2016

Ms. O'Rourke has been an excellent provider. I do believe that she cares about me and wants to help me.

December 04, 2016

The medical assistant handed me a paper to sign for consent for stent removal. When I asked her about the risks and benefits of the procedure, she gave me a blank stare. Anyone who is obtaining informed consent needs to understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. I also had to ask to speak with the PA who was going to perform the procedure, so that I could meet with her ahead of time to discuss the procedure. Even in a busy practice, the person performing a procedure should meet the patient ahead of time to answer questions about the procedure. The patient should not have to request to meet with them.

My complaint about the urology clinic is how they are no thorough. My office visits always seem to go well but then when I am able to view my result on MyChart there is always something off about them that wasn't addressed, for example blood in the urine.

Mary O'Rourke is amazing to work with. She shows that she cares and is very informative. Dr. Myers is the best. He always eases all of my worries when I have any questions or concerns.

August 29, 2016

Dr.Myers and Dr. Mary are the best they care very much about me and show it at every visit

August 15, 2016

great experience

August 12, 2016

My provider was very professional and clearly interested in my welfare. She is the best!

July 23, 2016

I hated Mary o'Rourke. She cut me off when I tried asking her questions, made me uncomfortable while she removed my stent and tried to make jokes when I was clearly traumatized. She did not make me feel like she cared for me at all as a patient. I would rather have my kidney fail than let her touch me again.

July 12, 2016

like I said, the entire visit was without any discomfort . no ill at ease what so ever.

June 15, 2016

overall good experience, but didn't ease my mind with after Surgury complications

May 02, 2016

As a courtesy, Mary O'Rourke also helped provide a list of referrals for a general physician that I requested in addition to the main health reason for the visit.

May 01, 2016

Mary O'Rourke is awesome!

March 14, 2016

She was very pleasant and willing to answer any questions my wife or I had. She helped put us at ease.

March 06, 2016

Excellent experience

January 12, 2016

The instructions she gave about life style changes were easy to understand. They are just hard to do! I was so impressed that Mary O'Rourke called my cell phone and left me a message about the test results even before I made it home!

July 13, 2015


December 08, 2014

I am very impressed with everyone I have dealt with in the clinic through the years and this visit is certainly no exception.

November 01, 2013

we still haven't figured out the solution to my health issue...but some possible solutions could be: dietary changes, nutritional supplements.

October 18, 2013

He seemed preoccupied with his computer and left the instruction to his assistants.

October 05, 2013

Everyone is very professional as well as caring and helpful.

August 02, 2013

VERY professional and VERY pleasant. Is that a contradiction in terms?

July 26, 2013

I would totally recommend this place to friends, family, and neighbors.

July 22, 2013


July 15, 2013

absolutely the best.

July 08, 2013

Absolutely loved Mary O'Rouke! she presents well, confident, smart and has great energy.

June 24, 2013

Unable to find the problem

June 22, 2013

didnt seam to care that we had travled 5 hours and didt seam to care at all come back didnt care about reports from doctor that sent me do them over

June 18, 2013

Everything is always great.

June 12, 2013

Allways a pleasure.

June 10, 2013


May 03, 2013

I appreciated all the help

April 15, 2013


April 08, 2013

Mary is an excellent communicator and a very caring person.

March 25, 2013

Since I visit with O'rourke once a year, I felt I was able to take my time with the doctor and ask lots of questions.

February 04, 2013

My care provider has always given me full attention, listened carefully, explained very well, be it medication, activities to do, or further steps to getting better. I have full confidence that with her, I will regain my health. I am very grateful.

January 07, 2013

Dr.O'Rourke was explained several things that gave me a good feeling. She was helpful, informative and caring. I left feeling much better than I did when I first arrived.

December 18, 2012

My overall care was very good

December 12, 2012

"It's a job", appeared not wanting to be bothered as patient's concerns not relevant, did not validate concerns or reason for me being seen. Tid bit, physician whom performed procedure the next week completely agreed with me having procedure based on my history and present report of changes as well as my PCP

December 03, 2012

Love Mary O'Rourke's down-to-earth, friendly personality. She makes me feel like a friend, not just a patient.

November 26, 2012

I love Mary!!!!

November 23, 2012

I feel like the P.A. really listens.

November 05, 2012

I'v.e already recommended Mary to one of my friends

November 05, 2012

all the time they make sure that I understand what is going on with my treatment .

October 22, 2012

I left feeling that I was going to get results for my problem.

October 22, 2012

Mary spent a good 40 minutes with me explaining things

October 18, 2012

I feel my case is very complicated and I do not feel that this PA gave me any new information about what is wrong with me. In my opinion I should be checked into the hospital or scheduled for a long out-patient stay and have several tests performed to try to determine the cause of my illness. If Ms. O'Rourke does not have the answer, I would think that my case should be brought before a team of people to decide what should be the preferred course of treatment. I have been in severe pain for 4 years and the best I can get is 2 Tylenol 3 pills a day with no other hope of getting better. I am feeling desperate about my condition and need assistance with making decisions.

October 08, 2012

I appreciated Dr. O'Rourke referring me to a more specialized person.

October 01, 2012

She was very nice and kind.

September 10, 2012

It would be nice if there was more face time, and listening

July 30, 2012


June 15, 2012

Best PA experience ever! Clone her!

May 03, 2012

Not only was the provider assigned to me great in every way, but all of the staff worked so well together that I felt very confident in the care they provided.

April 26, 2012

I feel that I get consistently fantastic care from my doctor and from the PA. I have always felt like my concerns are addressed and that I am getting the best medical treatment.

April 19, 2012

mary o'rourke does a fine job. i will continue to go to her.

March 13, 2012

I'm sure you hear this on a regular basis but I really need to let you guys know...Mary O'Rourke is AWESOME!! She is caring and so understanding. She took the time to listen to me, provided me with so much information, discussed with me what she thought would be best. I specifically asked for her because she came so highly recommended...and now I will definitely be recommending her to others as well!

February 29, 2012

They only offer quantity not quality.

February 22, 2012

I felt that it was very likely that the doctor was over worked, tired or just plain irritated with me and my questions. She was competent and got to the root of the problem, which I am grateful for.

February 07, 2012

When I tried to explain I didn't have the normal symptoms even before dignoises was made a couple of years ago with my acid reflux she didn't seem to listen to it. I want her to do the test again to get a second opinion and all she said was it is not done unless the patient has symptoms. Well I am still having the symptoms. I haven't seen her enough to have confidence or real to recommend.

January 19, 2012


January 05, 2012

just a screening visit. tests to follow but i don't know if there was a concern for anything specific. No information given except to go for the testing. I feel this is normal and ok but would have like to know what the possibilites could be. Do not know enough to answer the questions until a second visit.
