Dr. O'Brien and his staff are such great people, their main concern is helping you feel better. I had gone through a year of pain with my shoulder and just a few days after surgery I had little to no pain and 4 months later I am pain free. Thank you!

MRI was supposed to be with dye contrast. Tech injected dye into IV in my hand instead of hip. Otherwise staff was very friendly and courteous. Would recommend Dr. O'Brien to friends and family.

Never felt hurried with Mindy, Kerry, or Dr. O'Brien which was nice. Mindy was excellent in answering questions. The paperwork Avera needs for employees is ridiculous and time consuming for all. Post surgery my knee had more issues than I had planned for. A polar pack would have been helpful from day one. I ended up borrowing one from a friend. PT was forgot in the scheduling process so it put me out further in recovery. Still having issues with swelling which no one seems to know why.

Dr. O'Brien and his staff have been so wonderful and caring during the last year after my work injury. They have been supportive and understanding of concerns and fears. It's like having a personal support team that really cares.

I would never go back to Dr. O’Brien. Not only did he waste 3 months of my time in excruciating pain, but he also recommended physical therapy to work on something that wasn’t causing the pain and all the while maintained that my injury would heal on it’s own- a labrum tear does not mend on it’s own! He was rude at my appointments- totally dismissing how much pain I was in and couldn’t even answer the most basic of questions. My only regret is that I didn’t seek a second opinion sooner.
