Very uncommunicative and condescending when you ask any questions. Went as a workman's comp referral for treatment of my neck and back, he spent less than 5 minutes doing the the usual grab my hands reset pushing etc., then sent me for a functional capability exam which tested my strength and tolerance. I get to the 4+ hour test and immediately have to sign a pretty scary release that says the test may reinjure me and waives liability. Then was pushed and prodded and asked to perform taks which are the exact opposite of safe for me and resulted in reinjury which set me back 4 months in recovery. When I went to the followup and asked him why I was sent to a test like that when I was clearly still injured and was expecting treatment to help me and he acted like I was being an unreasonable patient. Clearly I was a cog in his workman's comp machine and he had no interest even in informing me of what was going on, much less had ANY consideration for my health and healing progress.

Excellent surgeon with absolutely no bedside manner or personality. Did great job on shoulder surgery in Jan 2018 but saw him only once during entire experience!

Rude, Do not let you speak, Certain segments of population welcome. Saw me for 3 minutes and wrote a report without xrays, but will charge government thousands.

Had a growth under my right thumb nail which turned out to be cancerous. Dr O'Brien after a consultation with a dermatoligist decided that the best thing to do was to remove the end of thumb at the knuckle. He did an excellent job and I had very little pain after the surgery. I am very happy with him and all of his staff, they all are really very professional.

After suffering with hip joint pain for 3 years when I was finally referred to Dr. O'Brien. Scheduling was easy, appointment was almost immediate. Office staff were friendly and professional. Nurses were also very friendly. Dr. O'Brien was cordial and pro-active. After discussion and review of my MRI's, surgery was scheduled for the 1st hip. 4 weeks later surgery on the other hip. (Labrum tears) I have had no problems with recovery and am so happy with the treatment and care I received.

Dr O'Brien is an excellent and efficient surgeon. I fractured my tibial plateau 2x in 1 week. The 2nd time was an open tib-fib fracture & required immediate surgery. He even did the surgery ASAP on Saturday. His surgical PRECISION is amazing, smooth & straight. Healing is better than expected, since I have osteoporosis & other issues. His office staff & team are professional, curtious & very helpful! I'm chatty, but APPRECIATED his direct & concise manners. I highly recommend Dr O'Brien & team!

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.
