Two of my three kids have gotten tubes from Dr. O'Brien and we have had a great experience from consult, surgery and follow-up. Even 2 years post surgery, the office and Dr. O'Brien are quick to respond to ear issues for my kids. The office staff is SO helpful with all my kids during appointments. I'm sure our 3rd will need tubes and we will go to Dr. O'Brien. Highly recommend!

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.
