He treated my 85 year old mom with such compassion, kindness and civility. Never did he treat her as the "next Alzheimer's patient". His intuition was keen; hence he knew how to work with her through her concerns. He is beyond compassionate, kind and genuine. Thank you, Dr. O'Brien for your time, gentility and sincerity.
