Dr. O'Brien and his staff are incredible - professional, knowledgeable, accommodating (even in these crazy times)! I had sinus surgery several years ago - not one complication and I can breathe out of both sides of my nose for the first time in 25 plus years!

I saw Dr. O'Brien for Primary hyperparathyroidism and he performed surgery on my neck to remove the tumor in my parathyroid gland. He is terrific. Dr. O'Brien is kind, explains things really well and gave me great confidence going into a surgery where he was going to cut into my neck. I recommend him wholeheartedly...he is a terrific surgeon and just a really nice person.

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!
