“Dr. O'Holleran repaired my right ACL previously and my left ACL in December. In both instances, he was great, always explaining to an unsure full understanding of pre- and post-surgery care. As unfortunate as it was to be back, the process, surgery, and recovery were all easier than the first time around. Thank you!”
– Taylor P.
“Dr. O'Holleran came highly recommended to me by my P/T, and after meeting with him, I was confident that I was in good hands under his care! The entire nursing staff at SMN was extremely professional in a caring and concerning manner that made me feel at ease and relaxed! The surgery must have gone exceptionally well since I never experienced any real significant pain after the nerve block wore off. From all the hype I heard from others that had similar surgeries, I got concerned about all the pain I was going to endure but never experienced. I got to believe; I have Dr. O'Holleran to thank for that!”

“My experience with Dr. O'Holleran is when he surgically repaired my separated shoulder. My shoulder injury was the result of a bicycle accident complicated by a torn bicep tendon and torn rotator cuff. Long story short, I could not be happier with the result of the surgery. I have complete use of my shoulder without any limitations, and I am a very physically active 68-year-old male. Today I made the trek from Newport, RI to Sports Medicine North to have the Doctor advise me regarding recent MRI results regarding my right knee and shoulder. Dr. O'Holleran (and his assistant) took great patience and time to explain their findings and recommendations as well as answering my questions in great detail. My visit and time with them have helped me in making the proper course of action going forward. Thank you Dr. O'Holleran and the staff at Sports Medicine North for all of your help and expertise.”
– Bob D.

“Dr. O'Holleran is amazing. He understands. No BS. Top notch and honorable. I am amazed by all staff. You have to wait so what it’s a doctors office. The staff is very accommodating.”
– Marissa F.
“The PA came to the room first and was very friendly and greeted my daughter and me. She asked a series of questions and performed a thorough examination of my daughter’s shoulder and back. Next, the doctor arrived and introduced himself with a big smile and shook both our hands. He also performed a thorough examination and obtained an X-ray. Once he reviewed X-ray, he explained the results and treatment t going forward. What impressed me is that both the doctor and PA addressed my daughter (the patient & student/athlete) directly & then me. So often the child sits and listens as if they are not there. Also, both the doctor and PA were on time, and we never felt rushed. I would highly recommend this practice.”

– Terri S.
“I had rotator cuff surgery one year ago. Six weeks with my arm in a sling, five months of physical therapy, and six months of no golf, heavy lifting, fishing, tennis, etc. I had only minor discomfort (primarily in the first couple of days) and NO pain after the first 24 hours, which I am told, even by Dr. O'Holleran is unusual, but that was my experience. I would not want to do it again, but primarily because of the long recuperation. I have no pain and a full range of motion. I could not be happier with the result and can recommend Dr. O'Holleran without reservation.”

– Anne V.
“Dr. O'Holleran is one of the best doctors I've ever had. He listened to every question and concern my family and I had about my shoulder surgery. He is thorough, and spent extra time with me.
