Dr. O'Brien is AMAZING!!!! I was Diagnosed with Scoliosis at 14yrs old. I wanted to get the surgery then but the doctors felt that it would be too much risk. 2016 I came to Dr. O'Brien and expressed my concerns and insecurities about my spine. I had the surgery done 5/25/2016 and looking at my spine now, I cry tears of joy. My spine is completely straight now its amazing! I'm always speechless when I look at my before and afters. Truly an amazing, and genuine doctor and staff. God Bless you all!

Dr. O'Brian discussed my problems and scheduled appropriate tests required to determine if I needed back surgery. An follow-up appointment was scheduled 3 month later to give me time to think if I wanted surgery. Even gave me his cell phone number so if my son who is also in medicine could talk to him. Very efficient office staff.
