What People Say About Dr. Michael O'Brien, MD
Reply
I didn't feel like I was listened to. My concerns and questions felt dismissed. Dr. O'Brien is probably good if you have a straight forward injury and need surgery. But I have something strange going on with my hips and Dr. O'Brien didn't want to take the time to figure it out. After 3 apps, PT, and an MRI, I never got an answer or even interest in solving my pain. Very disappointing.
