Do not go to this doctor!!! After I paid my copay, I saw Jeffrey Obrien today 10/12/2017 and talked to him for under 2 min. He said I needed surgery right away and when I was about to ask questions regarding the surgery, he was in a hurry and I didn't get the chance to ask questions. Yes, he asked me if I have any questions however he was walking towards the door and ready to leave. No time for his patient and all he wants is my money!!! I left his office and will never come back!!!

Was having horrible pain in my knee, ordered an MRI; bad kneecap. He went in and cleaned it all up and did a Lateral Release of the tendon. PT was hard but haven't had any further issues, 2009 2016 was having hip issue. Took X-ray and nothing but inflammation, had a shot, no further issues. Currently seeing him for a broken wrist. Had no problem giving me pain meds. Hand was swollen three times it's size. Pain level was 15. Down to a 7. 4 more weeks in the cast. Then PT. He's great.

Saw Dr. O'Brien 5/11/17. PA took x-ray Dr. came into exam room looked at film said you need a hip replacement, spent under 2 minutes in exam room, never even touched my leg. I asked if he could give me something for the pain I was in and he said we don't do that. I'm sure I look like a 65 year old junky. Dr. leaves exam room and assistant tries to hammer me into an appointment with his surgeon. Felt like I was buying a car! Planned to get second opinion. Sorry I wasted one on him.

Pain in left arm and index finger misdiagnosed by other doctors. After reviewing MRI Dr. O’Brien said it was a C6-C7 spinal issue and referred me to the appropriate spinal surgeon. Post operation of C6-C7 fusion and all is well. Went back to him for shoulder pain and he diagnose bone spurs and provided local injection. I feel great after 6 months. Bedside manner aside this man is a great doctor!

I had a knee replacement Feb 2,2016. UP tonite 2am in pain! & at least 2-3 times a week..it's swollen, very stiff, warm, I know my own body. Dr OBRIEN said Nuclear bone scan showed nothing to worry about. When leaving his office I got a copy of test. It SAID 3 possibilities- fracture/screws/fittings loose/ infection. I asked for MRI to rule these out. He's not an empathetic doctor. Does not care about your CONCERNS. He'll see me for appointments & Co-pays. No help! Please compare other surgeons!

I was very disappointed, Dr gave me an x ray found no problem but unbelievable pain in my knee. He wanted to give me a shot to relieve pain. Would not take because was afraid of masking problem. went to general doctor ,she gave me an MRI and said I have a torn miniscus. Dr Obrien is an orthopedic surgeon why did he just let me go without further tests. Now three weeks later after such pain I am finally diagnosed, seeing a new orthopedic surg Dr Obrien was a waste of time and money.

I told Dr O'Brian that I was working on a VA claim dispute and asked him for an opinion letter. He refused as he felt It was not his role. Total waste of time and thanks for nothing.

excellent surgeon with no bedside manner... but when the diagnosis is right, the surgery successful, using minimally invasive techniques, what more could you ask for? That is why I would want to see a skilled physician like him and have no problem recommending him.
