Dr O'Brien was recommended to me by my PCP and he was spot on. The office is friendly and efficient, the clinical support staff was courteous and attentive and Dr. O'Brien was engaging and professional. I felt as though the patient was the priority from the time I entered the office until my departure. I felt that Dr O'Brien was unhurried, thorough in evaluating my concern, easily understood in her explanation of a care plan and open to my questions.

Very kind and actually listens to you instead of focusing on entering information into the computer. She has a nurse that takes notes during the appointment so she can focus on the patient. Dr. O’Brien performed a surgery for me and was excellent. I’m grateful that she was highly recommended.

Dr. O'Brien is my favorite doctor in the 50 years of my life. Have had her for a Dr. for 13 years now, and am so grateful and blessed to have her. I was in the hospital and needed what was essentially life-saving surgery, and she was on surgical rotation that week. She is the perfect blend of highly-skilled surgeon, patient advocate, and down-to-earth doctor. She is at the top of my list of recommended CR surgeons.

I have literally had dozens of doctors and surgeons over the years. Dr. O'Brien has been one of the best. She has listened to my concerns, reviewed my problems with all of my doctors and offered me informed choices. She never took me out of the decision making process, which is not always the case with surgeons. The results were positive and I am thankful to have her on my team.
