Austin, TX |
Dr.O'Brian is a talented and kind man. He and his nurse Shannon are truly concerned about your wellbeing.
in Covington, LA |
I had to have rotator cuff surgery performed one year almost to the date of my initial surgery due to a car wreck. The doctor who did the first surgery would not see me because I had been in an accident. This was a blessing in disguise. Dr. O'Brien not only has a terrific bedside manner he knew my frustration with needing this type of surgery again. I had my surgery and not only was the pain not as bad the rehab and being released was in 3 months instead of 6. Highly Recommend!!!!
