    I have had too many surgeries this year. Hopefully, this being the last. I have to say that the Coastal Orthopedics East Surgery Center was the best experience I have had. I was the first client of the day. I had a chance to observe the start of the day. Everyone was very pleasant and professional. I enjoyed watching the camaraderie between the staff. Everyone seemed happy to be there. It is wonderful when people actually love their jobs and the people they work with. Finding Dr. O’Daly and his team has been my blessing. Keep up the good work. Thank you!

    Dr. O’Daly operated on me February 2018. I am a 65 year old male that suffered complete Achilles tear. I am extremely active and surgery was major. It was over 2 hours long. Dr. O’Daly did a great job. His bedside manner and friendliness are beyond great! I have made a complete recovery and am now back playing competitive sports. I owe it all to him.

    Ron K.,

    I’m only 1 month out from my ankle break however everyone has been amazing. From the front desk, the nurses, the casters, the surgery center, and the PT department. Everyone’s been courteous, professional, but also fun! I hope I never break another bone. But if I do I’ll be going here.

    Trecks A.,

    Great doc. I highly recommend.


    Great attitude with excellent bedside manner. Would see this specialist if I had to wait half a day. Explains the condition and what needed to be done to fix it.

    Larry B.,

    I cannot say enough about Dr. O’Daly, Russell White, and the staff at Coastal Orthopedics. I have been dealing with foot pain all my life and was even told by Mayo Clinic that I needed to have surgery. Fast forward 12 years later, Dr. O’Daly knew what had to be done, consulted many of his colleagues to make sure that he was covering all that needed to be done, and fixed many deformities in my foot. I still don’t like wearing shoes and I am not looking forward to the other foot being done at some point, but the relief is significant!  I highly recommend them for their professionalism, thoroughness, sense of humor, and everything else that goes with a good surgical team. Thanks, Dr. O’Daly and Russell!

    Linda D.,

    Communication is excellent with expert diagnosis. Surgery went very well and recovery was also short due to great surgeon and PT. This was an emergency situation and I am glad he was the expert on call when I was injured. Very personable and relates to patients with respect and care.


    The best of the best.


    Dr. O’Daly is very professional and he will go the extra mile to ensure a successful recovery. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and keeps you abreast of each step of the surgery. He takes much pride in his work. I had major foot surgery and I am glad to say that I am up and walking again!


    Very professional and he takes pride in his work. Goes the extra mile to ensure a successful recovery!

    I had an unstable ankle fracture during a trip away from home. I was referred to Dr. O’Daly. He did imaging and a physical exam. He confirmed the best way for me to heal would be to have surgery ASAP. I was so afraid to have surgery locally – not in a big city. Dr. O’Daly is an amazing surgeon. The aftercare was very good at Blake Hospital, all followup therapy at Coastal Orthopedics moved along the healing. Dr. O’Daly discussed every aspect of the pre and post-surgical situation.


    In August of 2017 I tripped while jump roping, resulting in a terrible trimalleolar fracture. I was referred to Coastal Orthopedics while in the hospital and saw Dr. O’Daly. He was great through the entire process, friendly, funny, and professional. I felt completely comfortable in his care. He even handled my worker’s comp nurse with finesse. Dr. O’Daly answered any questions or concerns I had readily and thoroughly explained the surgery and what to expect.

    Dr. Mardones referred me to Dr. O’Daly after I shattered my heel in a fall after hurricane Irma. I shattered my heel (calcaneus) cleaning up after hurricane Irma and went to Dr. Mardones (my primary doctor) and he referred me to Dr. O’Daly. My wife suggested we drive to Dr. O’Daly’s office to let them know they would be receiving a referral. As I sat in the car she went inside to talk to the office receptionist. A few minutes later an angel (Ron) appears with my wife and a wheelchair. He wheeled me into the office and then into an examination room. After a few minutes, Dr. O’Daly came in to look at the MRI and X-Rays I had received from the emergency room before cutting off the bandages and examining the injury. I felt so at ease. He is the most wonderful doctor and person, knowledgeable and experienced. He asked me if the following day would be good for me to have him perform surgery and I was immediately relieved knowing that he was going to repair my injured foot. His mannerism and professionalism made me realize I was so fortunate to have him as my doctor.

    Broke my ankle skateboarding on a Tuesday. I knew I needed surgery, but near my area, all doctors wouldn’t be able to even look at the injury until one week after. Dr. Amdres O’Da;u was able to see me that same Friday after his office was closed, and I had surgery by the next Wednesday. He has seen to my recuperation in every way possible. The staff has never been anything less than professional and very attentive. Could not have been in better hands, from the first visit to the post-op follow ups.

    Sara A.,

    I was brought to Blake trauma center after a fall down the steps. My ankle was a mess. Dr. O’Daly went over the injury with me and I was scheduled for surgery the next day. He was very upfront with me and very professional. The surgery went very well and he did an excellent job on my ankle and even checked on me in the hospital after the surgery. I felt very well taken care of throughout my recovery. Thank you, Dr. O’Daly!

    Suzanne M.,

    Really Great Doctor. Knowledgeable, caring. I’m very grateful.


    Dr. O’Daly and staff were amazing after I fell on vacation and suffered a Trimalleolar fracture with dislocation of my ankle. I was treated with exceptional kindness and professionalism every step of the way. From initial consultation, surgery, pain management to post-op recovery and rehabilitation. Upon returning home to the Chicago area, I have received all excellent assessments of my surgery and progress. I continued to feel optimistic about a complete recovery and will be forever thankful our paths crossed at my time of need.

    Diane D., Yelp!

    Truly remarkable. Grateful to have Dr. O’Daly as my surgeon.


    Dr. O’Daly and his entire staff were and continue to be wonderful! Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and ensure you are informed about what’s going on with your injury and the recovery process.


    I was referred to Dr. O’Daly by Melinda Jeter, PA. She was awesome and knew just the right Dr to refer me to within their practice. I was pleased with Melinda AND trusted her with her referral. Dr O’Daly met with me after reviewing ALL the past visit notes and x-rays. Dr discussed my concerns and further diagnosed my conditions. Dr suggestions were considered and i decided on surgery asap. The intent was obviously, to correct my ankle fractures etc. ALL went well. Staff awesome! Success!
