Bronx, NY |
I was very impressed with Dr. O'Brien. He was thorough, very easy to talk to and listened intently to my concern. I didn't feel rushed like I've felt with some doctor's in the past. I would highly recommend him. The offices were immaculate and the staff was very professional.

Dr. O'Brien performed my tonsillectomy recently. He was very straight forward, knowledgeable and professional. The office environment is very welcoming. Susan and Kelly were both great during my allergy testing too! Thank you!
