Every one did well during these trying times
October 15, 2021
Tom is an amazing person and he is genuinely concerned about my pain and trying to find what my problem is. He referred me to doctor iO'Sullivan and he's just as amazing. He is truly concerned about my pain and how to go about fixing it! I have all the confidence in both of these providers and feel truly blessed to have found them!!!

Prior to working for Asante, Dr O'Sulivan performed several surgeries on me. All had good outcomes, with few to no complications. I am thankful to have him as one of my physicians.
September 08, 2021
The very kind and patient ladies at the front office..I was certain that my appt. was at a certain time. Absolutely sure of it! Adamant about it.. I was WRONG.. the kind ladies at the front office managed to squeeze me in and were very patient and helpful to me even though I was about as prickly as could be.Then Dr. O'Sullivan came and was so kind I couldn't believe it. Even though I was a complete stinker. I guess I won't complain about not getting an MRI appt. , at least not for another week..
September 01, 2021
There was a nurse at night but I don't remember her name. I was listening to my music doing a little singing and dancing and she joined in. I felt comfortable.

I feel as if Dr. O'Sullivan truly cares about his patients. He seems to be a very kind compassionate physician. I truly admire his ability to problem solve for each patients needs. I feel he is able to do this because he listened, is thorough in his diagnostic evaluation, and has the ability to think outside the box. I love his down to earth, humble way about him. He's like talking to an old friend.
August 21, 2021
Dr. O'Sullivan is great at assisting me in trying to get refferals and prescriptions for additional imaging studies, PT, and pain management care. He listens, understands that we are in a fight with the insurance company to apporve any treatment plans at all, and tries to work with me to find options which will assist me while wait for the insurance company to meet their legal and medical obligations of my contracted health plan. Dr. O'Sullivan's ongoing efforts on my behalf are greatly appreciated.

Dr O'Sullivan was amazing. He was very attentive and paid perfect attention to my issues and was able to lay out plan options in an easy, understandable way and then get started on my chosen plan immediately. My visit with him was the best orthopedic care I have gotten ever.
July 05, 2021
I greatly appreciated the extra time Dr. O'Sullivan spent with me at my first appointment. Tracy was also excellent. I am anticipating that Dr. O'Sullivan's follow-up on my upcoming MRI will be thorough, and that he will have already spoken with Dr. [NAME] of Medford about my past tests & the Intracept procedure that was proposed by that doctor.Thank you.

I have complete confidence in Dr O'Sullivan's abilities to restore my health. His staff have always been very helpful.
July 01, 2021
Dr Glen O'Sullivan has always been an outstanding doctor and surgeon. He first performed surgery on my neck in 2012. My next surgery that I needed I found out about after I had moved to California. I waited until I moved back to Jackson County so Dr O'Sullivan could do the surgery, removing bone spurs in my left shoulder. Now I have a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder and another herniation in my neck. I wouldn't allow any other surgeon to do the surgery. I trust Dr O'Sullivan implicitly. He is the Best surgeon in So. Oregon!
June 23, 2021
A clear explanation of options to explore regarding my condition

Dr Glen Osullivan is an outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon and I was very impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and desire to provide the correct treatment for me.His approach to gain more insight and information was important for me to see and gain the confidence I needed. Very pleased with Dr Glen
June 23, 2021
Prior to "Ashland Orthopedics" becoming" Asante Orthopedics Ashland," their reputation stood on its own merit and was held in high regard. Thus far, I would say the quality of care continues to be excellent. I look forward to the continued care I am anticipating as we move forward to address the issues with my lower back. I am in good hands.
June 20, 2021
All of Dr. O'Sullivan's staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. I can't recall anyone specifically.

Dr. O'Sullivan communicable a very caring attitude towards me whenever we have an appointment.
June 17, 2021
Everyone was outstanding
June 17, 2021
Dr O'Sullivan is without a doubt, not only one of the most knowledgeable doctors regarding SCI (spinal cord injuries), but is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered in my life. I come from a family of doctors and do not feel I could have been treated better by ANY of them if they were specialists in my injury field. It is not a stretch to say that Dr O'Sullivan has bmade an extremely positive change in my life, and I can not recommend him highly enough. My thanks also go to his staff who have never been anything less than phenomenal!
June 17, 2021
I am very happy with the way that doctor O'Sullivan did not just make his opinion based on the MRI but had all possible problems tested to know what procedure that I needed. This kind of care isn't always the case, I am thankful that I was able to connect with Doctor O'Sullivan, he made me feel confident in the choice made.
June 17, 2021
Tracy Dr. O'Sullivan's MA & Amanda Dr. O'Sullivan's receptionist ! These 2 ladies were very exceptional when it came to everything I asked for or anything I needed them to do for me ! Words can not do them justice . What a pleasure it was for me & my wife to have them taking care of all my health needs & questios ! The health care society needs to copy a chapter out of their book of how to treat & meet a patient's needs ! They are absolutely the best ! Thank you Tracy , Amanda & all the staff working for Dr. Glenn O'Sullivan !!! []

Adriane was amazing getting my surgery approved so quickly with my insurance. With that I'm very grateful. To be in even a small amless pain it is amazing. Thank you for all you did for me. Janet
May 03, 2021
I appreciated Dr. O'Sullivan's attentive listening and clear explanations and his thoughtful understanding of my situation.
May 02, 2021
I was left in the treatment room for well over an hour waiting for the doctor. When I finally left the treatment room to find out what was happening he came rushing down the hall waving papers saying Did I show you your pictures? I told him I have not even met you and no, you have not shown me my pictures. It was extremely stressful day for the clinic whole schedules were off the doctor was beyond stressed. I did not feel met or cared for by the announcement of the nurse that took me to the Treatment room, who handed me pre-surgery materials when I had not even seen the doctor nor agreed to surgery was offensive. If you can slow down, look your patients in the eye and receive the vulnerability that they are in, it would go along way to creating a kind and caring atmosphere I am sure you're interested in.

Was very impressed with Dr. O Sullivan and all of the staff I had contact with.
April 26, 2021
I'd say most likely Jeremy [ ]. After 3sessions of various shots had limited effect, he brought up the spinal cord stimulator which I am now pending for. Hopefully the trial can happen soon!
April 24, 2021
I feel like I am in good hands and looking forward to a release from chronic pain
April 23, 2021
Dr O'Sullivan and his staff, including the PA that works with him are amazing. I was a patient of Dr [ ]'S for 30 years before his retirement and feared I would not be able to find a doctor as good as he was.... Dr O'Sullivan is THAT good and I'm happy to have him as a provider.
April 16, 2021
The head intake person organizing all the lab tests. He was incredible! I'm not sure who he was but he had dark hair and was a great communicator!
April 16, 2021
Very efficient organization!

O'Sullivan is, and continues to be, a specialist I trust to do what is necessary, effectively and efficiently.

Chris was exceptional. He knew what he was talking about everytime we talked. Dr O was great he really explained things to all everytime he slid in, I had 5 people that recommended him and I'm glad I could see him. All the RNs and CNNs were amazing. They worked their tails off. The rooms looked like they could use a little help. Plus I had two roommates that either had visitors til after 10 pm or who complained all night.
April 12, 2021
Glen O'Sullivan possesses attributes that transcend medical treatment and attention. He off the chart in ways I will not address here. My situation was (is) dire. No blood going to my right hand. Asked Glen to put me on the ‘vascular' fast track. I received an angiogram that day and met with a vascular surgeon the next. Tough to impress me, but Glen's attention and alacrity (on my behalf), saved my hand. (He also trimmed my L1-L4 in 2016 and I play competitive BBall & PBall today, because of his fine work. (I understand it's all part of a day's work for him; but for me/us, it's more accurately, a new opportunity to live a full life again.). My wife and I have a history with other surgeons at this facility as well (pre Asante absorption), that we are ultra thankful for.

March 12, 2021
Tracey, Dr. O'Sullivan's MA, is outstanding. She patiently responded to all my messages. I really appreciate her.
March 12, 2021
Dr. O' performed surgery on my lower back. He explained that it takes six months, sometimes up to a year to recover. I'm finding this to be true as the recovery has been slow but steady. Some days I feel great and some days not so good. BUT that's because of the arthritis.
March 10, 2021
Dr. O'Sullivan and the nurse Tricia. Also, Amanda at the front desk was very good.
March 08, 2021

January 31, 2021
Do Surgeons get any better than Glen O' Sullivan? No, I've been seeing him for about 5 years and he operated on my back (L1-L4) in 2016 Glen expertise and professionalism is balanced with the great attributes of humor and being personable Excellent Office Personnel are OK, but the nurses are outstanding
January 28, 2021
Dr. O'Sullivan is the best surgeon. He's a good man... BUT he's always too busy...He has a new assistant that helped with my back surgery who is also a wonderful doctor. Tracy and Amanda have been very good to me.
January 27, 2021
Dr O'Sullivan was outstanding! Probably the best doctor I've seen in a very long time
January 27, 2021
Dr. O'Sullivan exceeded my expectations. He was charming, intelligent, and thoughtful in his responses concerning my case. I'd never been to an orthopedist before, so I was concerned that he might jump to surgery as a response to my physical issues. He did not. He gave me several options, and involved me in making decisions concerning my care. I very much appreciated this. He also had a sense of humor, which is a rare quality in doctors.
January 25, 2021
It is hard to identify one person when they were all outstanding!
January 25, 2021
I am deeply grateful for Dr. O'Sullivan and his terrific staff. I just can imagine where I would be if I had not had the care and concern that has helped me through all of my pain. I am able to walk mostly without pain and live my days mostly without pain. Life is worth living again.How can I say thank you for that. With the deepest gratitude to Asante Orthopedics.
January 25, 2021
Dr. O'Sullivan recalled my case from three ears ago and produced x-rays for comparison with the present
January 25, 2021
Super staff
January 25, 2021
The whole office is great. They always get back to me the same day with answers to my questions. I've never had to wait more than 5 to 10 minutes In the office. And they are always friendly and courteous.I've been with Doctor O'Sullivan for over 7 years His reputation preceded him. I've had 3 major surgeries with Doctor O' Sullivan, lumber spine, cervical spine, and knee replacement without incident. I would have no problem recommending Ashland Orthopedics or Doctor O'Sullivan..
January 23, 2021
Drs. [ ] and Glen O'Sullivan are top north medical practitioners. We have total confidence in their professionalism. What's more, they are kind and decent folks, a pleasure to visit.

Dr Osullivan
November 30, 2020
Everyone was very pleasant and quick to answer my questions.
November 22, 2020
I felt he understood that my pain management had been mismanaged in the past (not by my PC) and he ordered tests and had ideas for a treatment plan. Most importantly he stressed and I agree that we need to leave things stat and then perhaps some injections could be done for diagnostics. That way he could do other things to help with the chronic severe pain but follow a coordinated protocol. That's what I got out of the visit.
November 22, 2020
Dr O'Sullivan is honest and competent, providing excellent and realistic care. I do wish that I could have longer appointments, but the appointments are short as he is so busy. He does provide excellent injections that help me to function better.
November 19, 2020
Dr. O'Sullivan is great I've had numerous surgeries and been a patient of his since I was in a bad car accident if it wasn't for him I'd probably be disabled by now

My family has had several opportunities to be counseled/cared for by Dr. O'Sullivan. He is an excellent physician who cares about his patients. He takes the time to go over matters well, and he has an appreciated and enjoyable, sharp sense of humor and personable manner.
October 15, 2020

October 03, 2020
I've been a patient for years but the staff and Dr O'Sullivan always listen and respond to my medical needs. The Workers Compensation manager is exceptional at her job!
September 30, 2020
Dr. O'Sillivan has repeatedly done almost everything in his power to do in assisting me, my other treating doctors, and legal representatives in getting my SSDI approved over the last 8 years. He has also assisted me in my ongoing battle with my insurance provider to get me the testing, and surgical proceedures I need to hopefully return me to some since of pre-injuries "normal". Unfortunately, we are still fighting these battles still 8+ years on and getting little movement on the part of the insurance company or the Social Security Disability system but that is not for lack of effort by Dr. O'Sullivan on my behalf. I am truly greatful to have found a Doctor and surgeon who I know has my best interest at heart and is willing to take the time and effort to try to get me the surgeries and treatment that I need.
September 25, 2020
They always listen carefully, and treat me with great respect.
September 24, 2020
Dr. O'sullivan's assistant (nurse).
September 20, 2020
An Asante staff person come out of the ER entrance with a wheelchair to help wheel me in. I could not have done this without his kind help.
September 17, 2020
I think the care I'm receiving, as everyone changes to the tele medicine style, has been excellent. I had one visit in person appointment in which the Dr. was handling a few patients at the same time. Maybe there was a person with an emergency. But since then, I have received Dr. O'Sullivan's complete attention on the phone. The phone calls to arrange, take payment, and move my case forward have all been satisfying. I feel like I will get the exact care I need as we work through insurance and healing modalities for my back and hips.
September 08, 2020
Dr. O'Sullivan very professional put Me at ease a wonderful person and he knows his stuff I felt very fortunate that I got to see him because I know he's a very busy man And he fit me in so I could be seen Asante is fortunate to have him He's the best
