Dr. O'Brien provides gentle and thorough care while explaining everything as she goes. She makes my daughter at ease during her appointments and is happy to answer any questions we may have . I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a fantastic doctor !

Professional care in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Dr. O'Brien has an engaging personality and explains procedures well. I don't feel rushed; she takes the time to listen to all of my concerns.

I really like Dr O'Brien as a person. I don't feel she enough experience. Seemed like 75% of the times I saw her, she referred me out to specialists, other than common health problems most of us can diagnose at home. I lost my confidence in her after the last several visits. I truly believe hasn't had enough experience and I just don't have the time, money or patience to be a Dr's test patient. I wish her all the best .

I saw Dr. O'Brien for my annual well woman exam. She offered me great information regarding birth control options I wasn't aware of. I would recommend her to all family and friends.

I liked her. She didn't make me feel like she was in a hurry to get out of the examination room.

Was on Xanax and other medications that should be tapered down not just quit, abruptly, Dr O' Brien would not listen, to me. Dr O'Brien just quit filling the medications, even though the warning was not to end the medications, with out tapering them down and then off of them. When confronting the Dr O'Brien about this, she stated I can't seep at night if I prescribe these medications to you, with no concern Dr O'Brien stopped medications and wrote a note to me to find another PCP.

Although I like this doctor, her assistant blocks access to her. (Maybe the doctor's tight schedule creates this situation.) Plus, she seems to rely on automatic textbook analysis too often w/o listening to and/or viewing the patient as an individual. I have suffered respiratory problems (pleurisy and wheezing) resulting from a virus 5 years ago. She blames the problems on my being a former smoker--years ago. That isn't true. The virus caused them & I caught it from non-smokers.
