This was my first visit with Dr. O'Brien. I was nervous, but she quickly made me feel comfortable. She is easy to talk to. She took time to really listen. I have confidence in her knowledge and experience. She gave her opinion of what I should do next, and I have no hesitation in following her recommendations.

I can highly recommend Dr. O'Brien. She is a skilled surgeon and adds to that so much compassion for her patients. It is a comfort to have such a caring, knowledgable health provider. I give high marks, too, to her staff. I especially single out her assistant, Jami.

I am in the medical field and have known of Dr OBrien and her expertise for years. Not only is she extremely competent but has a bedside manor that puts you at ease. I would highly recommend her - my family has a history of colon cancer and I’m so grateful to be in her care.

Dr. O'Brien operated on me using the robotic method. From the first appointment to the final one she was pleasant, always seemed interested in my thoughts, and inquisitive on signs and symptoms. I was fully informed on different recovery phases and what to expect and the surgery was a breeze. Best surgery experience I have had. I never waited more than 10 minutes for an office visits.

Dr. O'Brien is very thorough, listens carefully, answers all questions and presents a detailed overview of what is happening and the options. It took 3 months to get in as a new patient but I believe it was totally worth it. She came highly recommended from personal friends, my GI doctor and my medical doctor.

Dr O'Brien has been an asset to my healthcare for over a year now. Her office always replies promptly to any questions or scheduling needs and more importantly this is a doctor who truly listens to what you are saying. In my experience, many doctors and surgeons in particular, tend to read the chart and leave out the patient's input. If you are looking for sound advice from a doctor who not only is a leading surgeon in her field but who takes the time to make you understand your options, this is your doctor.

I recently have been under the care of Dr. O’Brien after being treated with very limited successes by other medical practices. Dr. O’Brien quickly identified my medical issue, listened carefully to my concerns and questions and then presented a well thought out multiphase plan to address my medical problem. I have confidence for the first time in months regarding the care I am now receiving. I was referred to Dr. O’Brian by a family member in medical practice, as well as a friend who is also a patient of Dr. O’Brien. I strongly recommend Dr. O’Brien and Colorectal Surgery Associates.

After a colonoscopy my GI physician recommended I see Dr. O'Brien to repair a prolapse. It took almost 4 months to get in to see her but she is worth the wait. She immediately puts you at ease and has a very caring attitude. She takes whatever time you need to discuss your case. I am now 5 weeks post surgery and am extremely pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her.

I would not recommend O'Brien. I waited an hour and a half past my appointment time before she saw me. She has no bedside manner at all. And her demeanor showed that she was annoyed by questions. I will say that I believe she answered questions honestly, she was not forthcoming with information regarding what to expect and the procedure. If you didn't ask specifically about something, she didn't venture to tell you. She hurriedly left the room without so much as a goodbye or pleased to meet you. Seemed very blaise and unfeeling about giving bad medical news. Displayed as much compassion as her DaVinci Robot. I would not recommend O'Brien. If I could give a zero star rating, I would.

Highly recommended by my physicians and friends, Dr. O'Brien lived up to all the praise I'd heard. She had read my medical history before meeting with me, she listened to my concerns, and presented an easy to understand plan of care for me. She was able to describe the reasons behind her recommendations and how they would benefit my care and recovery. She appeared to care about me and allowed me ample time to ask questions and participate in my care plan.
