    I found Dr. O'Brien and his staff to be very compassionate and easy to talk to. I was seen by a large orthopedic group and was told I needed surgery. After reviewing my films and taking the time to actually listen to me, Dr. O'Brien recommended against surgery and treated me conservatively. So far, so good. So glad to have found a doctor with integrity.

    Horrible! What he did to my mom was unspeakable! 2 surgeries later, and she is worse now! And went to a completely different dr, and has to get another surgery! The dr told her he never seen this kind of scar my moms house in 30 years! I don't know what dr. Obrien did???? Please beware!!! And go to someone else!
    This patient had a known complication, which I treated correctly. She chose to go to another surgeon for another opinion and apparently the new surgeon recommended additional surgery. I hope she has a good result. I would be glad to see her again, if she has any problems or questions concerning her subsequent care. Sincerely, Evan O'Brien, MD

    After a 20 hour flight I was experiencing terrible back pain. I was referred to Dr. Obrien's office buy urgent care. The office staff managed to arrange for an immediate MRI. In fact one of the staff doctors even drove me to the MRI facility in that I had no vehicle. After initial evaluation It was determined that I had needed immediate intervention at an associated surgical facility. I can highly recommend Dr. O'Brien and his most competent staff for their professionalism and caring attitude.

    After over a year of seeing several different doctors at both Rothman & South Jersey Sport Medicine, many MRI,s and epidural shots that provided no relief. A friend recommended Dr.Evan O'Brien, I am so happy that I made that appointment after a few visits we had a plan I needed a disc replacement surgery L5 S1. Dr O,Brien performed the surgery and I finally had relief. If you are like me and surgery is the last thing you want but you need go see Dr O,Brien he is a doctor you can trust..

    Dr. O'Brien performed two surgeries on my spine in 2015. In September, I had a 5 level laminectomy on my lower spine. Great work! He alleviated my back pain and sciatic nerve pain completely. Again in December I had numbness n my fingers on both hands due to severe compression of my spinal cord in C 2-3, 3-4, and 4-5. A fusion was performed and the problem solved. Numbness is gone and feeling restored. Great surgeon and wonderful staff. I wholeheartedly would recommend Dr. O'Brien.

    Doctor O'Brien and his entire staff are the friendliest, most thorough and accommodating group of healthcare individuals I have ever had the pleasure of being treated by. The doctor, his Physician Assistants, Medical Coordinator and Office Manager all spend as much time as is needed to fully educate the patient on his or her specific condition. Patients are then presented with options for treatment beginning with the least invasive to more involved if that is what is needed to provide relief.
