Not only a physician and family man, Dr. O’Neil is also an athlete and a scholar; though, it has been a bit since he was the former. A native of Hinesville, Georgia, he grew up in Binghamton, New York. While attending Hobart College in upstate New York, he received his B.S. in Biology (being elected to the Senior Honor Society) and started four years on the Statesman men’s basketball team.
He attended medical school at the Albany Medical College in Albany, New York and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Stamford Hospital in Stamford, Connecticut, and has been in private practice in Irving since 1997 and at MacArthur OB/GYN since 2011.
Dr. O’Neil is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and he is particularly interested in pelvic/vaginal reconstructive surgery, urogynecology and minimally-invasive gynecologic surgery. He has plans to become board-certified in female pelvic medicine/reconstructive surgery within the next year.
He has incorporated into his practice the repair of vaginal defects and urinary incontinence, and has experience in minimally-invasive gynecologic surgery using laparoscopy, robotics and hysteroscopy.
As a physician, he’s most proud of being able to incorporate new technology, such as the daVinci Robot, urethral slings and vaginal prolapse kits, into his surgical practice; new technologies that continue to help him improve the care he delivers to his patients and offer equal or better results and quicker recovery times compared to older procedures, which required an abdominal incision and a longer recovery time.
Since grade school, he knew he wanted to help others and the practice of medicine always called to him. “When I see a woman suffering from pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence, and the discomfort, pain and embarrassment that sometimes goes along with this, I find it very gratifying to be able to correct the problem with medication, physical therapy or surgery and give her a good result,” he said.
Dr. O’Neil and his wife, Jeanne, have three children, and he spends most of his free time with them, watching their activities, and cheering and coaching them in basketball and jogging.
Regarding Irving and serving patients at MacArthur, “I consider this home and I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to come here and serve the community and learn from and work with an outstanding group of doctors and nurses.”View all of Dr. O’Neil’s blog posts
