I have seen Dr. McConville many times and have always found him to be caring, professional, and never makes me feel like he doesn't have time to answer any questions I have. He gives me his professional opinion but respects that the decisions for my care are mine to make. He performed surgery 8 years ago and I have never had another problem with that shoulder - he knows what he's doing and it shows in every interaction I have ever had with him.

Dr. McConville is my husband's doctor for shoulder issues. I had taken a fall and had pretty bad pain in my shoulder. It was xrayed immediately after I arrived at the office and then saw Dr. McConville shortly after. I didn't have any breaks, but the pain was quite bad and I didn't want to spend the holidays with my husband while in bad pain. Dr. McConville gave me a shot of cortisone which has help so much already. I don't take any narcotics for any pain I have. I only take Tylenol with Gabapentin for my sciatica and other back issues. That is the extent of pain medicine I take. If I need any shoulder care, I will definitely see Dr. McConville again. My husband and I think he is the greatest!

This "visit" on 7/14 was for shoulder replacement surgery at South Shore Hospital. Dr. McConville and his staff were completely professional and provided me with the best care possible. I have had numerous surgeries in my lifetime and this one was by far the easiest I have ever had. My pain after surgery was minimal and I was able to dress myself the day after surgery. I wish I had this surgery sooner! I will definitely refer Dr. McConville to any people I know who need this type of surgery in the future.

Dr. McConville and his office staff are amazing. I have been going to the office for about a year now. I have never waited more than 2-3 minutes for my appointment after checking in. The doctor is compassionate and caring and takes the time to explain everything. In the beginning I had cortisone shots and eventually frozen shoulder surgery. I got a call from the doctor the next day to check on me and the nurses called a few times to see how I was doing. I felt well taken care of during the whole procedure and after. I would highly recommend this office.

Very efficient office. I hurt my knee, called for an app't and was seen the next day. I was taken in within a few minutes, spoke with a nurse and minutes later Dr McConville came in and examined me. He ordered an MRI which I rec'd 2 days later. The next day I rec'd a call from the Dr explaining the results of the test and laying out the options for my care. I'm very pleased with the care I rec'd.
