I had a problem with my ultra-large prostate and resulting urine retention for at least the last 20 years. While in a business meeting, I would have to excuse myself every hour or so in order to avoid a complete stoppage and another trip to the Emergency Room.Long airline flights were particularly difficult, especially if I could not book an aisle seat. But Dr. O'Brien's superb professional competence and unique skill in green laser ablation technology changed my life. 10 stars if I could.

I had my annual checkup with Dr. O Dec 22 which was amazing as usual. Courteous receptionist, amazing Asst in Tina and of course Dr. O is the BEST. I live 85 miles away now since I left Vienna fo Hollywood MD in May 2016. Coming to Reston for my Urology check up in this office is worth the drive. All the best for a healthy and happy New Year.

Dr. O'Brien has done an outstanding job explaining the physiology relating to what he has treated me for over the past several years. He has helped me make informed decisions at several junctures, including treatment for cancer. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to him, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Urologist.
