Owen is the best, along with all of his staff! I had shoulder pain for a month and he treated me right then and there with a steroid injection, after due to shift in pressure due to the volume injected my ROM improved but as I know as a nurse, the injection takes time, the next two days as expected was painful but this week as expected the injection has started to take effect to reduce the inflammation in my shoulder! Thank you so much Owen!!! I was going to call Sue his assistant to tell her and I will later this week, as a phone follow up to my appointment! Love all of the staff there, including Peggy who booked my appointment and Rebecca and all the front and back staff members! Very thankful for my care there! Stay safe and well to all!

During this period of the COVID-19 19, it is refreshing to see an office adhering to the best medical practices system recommendations. Every one was in mask, your greeters acknowledge your presence and politely directed you to a place to sit after you check in, the clerks at the desks greeted you with a smile and in an organized and concerned manner requested information and repeated my response making certain the information is correct and I understood the question. She then wished me a good day and directed me to the sitting area. I was called almost immediately and again I was requested to identify myself and directed to the examination room. The person then came in to verify my reason for the visit and asked if I had any questions or concerns, I wanted to inform the Doctor. This is a good step as many seniors have problems addressing their concerns and tend to forget and do not bring them up to the Dr. The Doctor spoke to me with care and concern and allowed me to express my concerns and worries. Each item was addressed and reviewed to be certain I had the information needed. I was given the requested paper work so I could participate in Physical Therapy and directed to the exit with a positive wish for a good day. When I exited the examination area the gentleman who first greeted me also extend greetings for a good day. This long explanation was given so you may want to film your next patients visit and circulate it within the medical community as "How to run a medical practice"

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.
