Dr. McConville is thoughtful, considerate and knowledgeable. He listens carefully and always tries to offer his best information and judgment without making decisions for me. In short, he is a professional who offers a balanced view of any orthopedic surgery and allows the patient to decide!

Always have a positive experience at South Shore Orthopedics, front office check in staff is friendly and efficient, never wait long to be called in for my appointment. If I need x-rays, done quickly and results out immediately for review during my visit with the specialist. If I call the office with a question or request, I get the results right away or very soon after. The operation of this practice is like a well oiled machine, runs smooth, in and out, but never feel rushed.

my daughter received phenomenal care on the hands of Dr. McConville. Everything was perfect. What I find hard to believe is the line and wait time at the office check in. The amount of people and time in line to check in was very unreasonable in this day and age. I would honestly recommend the practice but also mention this issue, as well.

I said yes, he gave me the shot, and (after months of pain) my shoulder immediately felt better -- Doctor Visits never goes this well : )
