I trust Dr. Obrien. He’s helped me a lot in the past, and he has never dismissed any of my comments or my fears, no matter how dumb they may seem to me. Exactly what I need.

I appreciated how honest Dr. O'Brien was about what to expect after surgery, the possible complications, and the recovery time. I haven't had surgery yet, but so far my experience with The Oregon Clinic, its staff and its physicians has been very positive.

I was very anxious about hemerroidectomy recovery but it was easier than I feared. I attribute this completely to having Dr. O'Brien as my surgeon. He's the best at what he does, period. I'm certain that no one in the Portland area could have done this surgery as well as he did. Prior to the surgery, he was very upfront with me about what to expect and how to prepare (diet, fiber, rest, etc). He worked with me to explore different pain relief medicines (check out gabapentin). Five stars!!!
