in Dublin, OH |
Has an excellent bedside manner, very personable & professional. Made me feel very reassured regarding my issue, and also requested me to have a follow up appointment just to check and make sure all is clear. I would highly recommend Dr. O'Brien!
Hilliard, OH |

Columbus, OH |
Good experience
in De Graff, OH |
Dr O'Brien is a fantastic doctor. He is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to explain what is going on. I would highly recommend him!
in Delaware, OH |
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.
in Columbus, OH |
Dr. O'Brien is very caring and understanding. He made me feel comfortable at a time when I was in the worst pain in my life. Highly recommend!
in Columbus, OH |
Personable and truly engages in my care and treatment which is refreshing and appreciated.
in Galloway, OH |
I had a 10:30 appt. I was not seen until 12:05 We probably could use a little help with that.
in Columbus, Ohio |
Best doctor I have ever had. Very understanding, I suffer from chronic ear infections and have had some real issues with severe ear infections in the past year, the pain is excruciating, but under his care they are cleared up quickly, and pain is managed excellently until the infection is gone. Without a doubt, he is the most competent and courteous medical professional I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
in Bellefontaine, OH |
Dr. O'Brien saw my 95 year old mother. He was kind, gentle, reassuring and his medical advice was excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. O'Brien
in Dublin, OH |
I had an ENT botch a procedure with my ears when I was young that resulted in horrible inner ear infections frequently which damaged my hearing. When I met Dr. O'Brien, he examined me and said he would try to restore the hearing I had lost but he could definitely repair the damage. Three years post-surgery and I'm doing great. I can also attest to Dr. O'Brien and his team having excellent bedside manners and listening to patients needs.
in Reynoldsburg, OH |
I have been a regular patient of Dr. O'Brien's now for almost 3 years. He is very pleasant and professional, in addition to being an excellent doctor. When I have an acute situation, he will work me in to his very busy schedule. Dr. O'Brien and his nurse, Jill, get 5+ stars from me!!! On the down side, the practice has changed phone systems. Now they tell you how many callers are ahead of you. I was 8th in the queue yesterday and waited 20 min. When I was #19 today, I just hung up! Not good!
in Columbus, Ohio |
Listens very carefully to my issues and takes the time to go into detail regarding my health. He is very pleasant and caring and wait time to get in to see him is minimal.
My son has been seeing Dr O'Brien since he was 18 months old to now 4 years old. Dr O'Brien has been great with him and keeping me very informed as well. He is also a excellent surgeon and has great bedside manner. My son recently had his tonsils out and experienced no bleeding what so ever. My son loves going to the office and seeing Dr O'Brien. I highly recommend him.
