    I have been a patient of Dr. O' Brien's for two years and recently had bilateral knee replacements. My surgical and recovery experience has been wonderful thanks to Dr. O'Brien and his kind, caring and professional staff. Dr. O' Brien has recommended a wonderful physical therapist and has been monitoring my progress. I couldn't be more satisfied with my care and my results. I highly recommend Dr. O' Brien!

    Dr. O'Brian performed surgery on my both knees-I am very happy with the results, and the care he provided it during the entire process. Stere Gicu

    I have been a patient of Dr O'Brien's for five to six years. I have two arthritic knees which he takes care of every six weeks. Without him I honestly don't believe that I would be able to walk and as a former runner he keeps me in good shape. I have also recommended a lot of my family, friends and work colleagues to him and everyone are 100% satisfied. His office staff are always accommodating and helpful. He is a true professional and ALWAYS tells me the truth - I recommend him highly.

    My experience with Dr. O'Brien and his staff was phenomenal! Dr. O'Brien literally saved my athletic career - performing his biceps transfer surgery on both of my shoulders, I now feel stronger than I ever did and have zero pain (6+ years after surgery). The staff is incredibly friendly and accomodating. I know many others who have had very, very positive experiences with Dr. O'Brien and have gone on to be completely pain-free. Without a doubt, one of the top orthopedic docs in the country!

    The worst office staff in the history of office staffs...impossible to get an appointment and they don't even bother calling you back despite emergency. Don't waste your time there are plenty of other Dr. Knee's out there who will see you immediately.

    If possible, I would give Dr. O'Brien 0 stars. I scheduled an appointment a month in advance. Also, I burned a vacation day as well. At 4pm on the Friday prior to my appointment, I received a call saying that Dr. O'Brien had decided it would be too inconvenient for him to keep his previously scheduled LI appointments and that I would receive a followup call the following week to essentially start from scratch. Suffice it to say, my path to recovery will no longer involve Dr. O'Brien.
