Dr. O’Brien did a Cochlear implant for me. He was great and his staff was tremendous. The people at Riverside were good also. Dr. O’Brien and staff explained everything to me. Also, Paula my audiologist is great. These people really care about you.

This was the first time I met with Dr. O'Brien, and I could not have been more pleased. The check-in was fast, and the wait time within reason. His nurse Jill was caring, efficient, and very friendly. Dr.O'Brien clearly explained what procedures he was going to do and what I could expect to experience. The scope of my nostrils was the first I have ever had, and all went well. He listened to what I was saying, and I never felt rushed during our appointment. I would recommend him highly.

Dr. O’Brien was knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns and apprehensions about the surgical procedure I needed and this served to enable me to undergo surgery confidently. His surgical skills and care produced results that brought about restoration and healing. The Ohio Surgery Center was clean, efficient yet personable, and I highly recommend Dr. O’Brien’s care in combination with the Ohio Surgery Center.

I have had ear problems almost my entire life. Dr O'Brien performed surgery to reconstruct my eardrum. Now I hear better than I have in years and no more infections!! He is very gentle, whereas I've had previous doctors who didn't seem to care if I was hurting. So, thank you Dr. O'brien! Thank you!!

On my first visit found Dr. O'Brien to be interesting. After 20+ years with Dr. Howard Lowry, I was very apprehensive to have to be looking for someone new. Dr. O'Brien was attentive, listened to my problem, made suggestions for me to follow, cleaned the wax from my ears, and I felt he did care how I was doing. As I said this was my first visit and feel many more will follow. Thank you Dr. O'brien and Nurse Jill for putting me completely at ease.

The wait time is ridiculous. I waited over an hour and a half to be seen. This is absolutely unacceptable, the complete disregard for a patients time and schedule. When I politely inquired about the wait after 60 minutes I was told rather snotty that I was next. It was still another 30 minutes before I was even called back to an exam room. Dr. O'Brien is very knowledgeable and great but the wait time must be dealt with. The staff definitely needs customer service training.

We generally see another ENT, but we were referred to Dr. O'Brien for my middle daughter who needed to have her ear drum reconstructed. Dr. O'Brien was great with her. Post surgery check up, she had some strange ideas about her exam and she was terrified and sobbing. He decided it would be better to wait to examine her. I was incredibly grateful for his understanding. Later she sat perfectly still and did a great job for him, I just needed to clear up her misconceptions first.
