Verified Patient Reviews
Was taken back within 5 min of my arrival to the office. Dr. O'Banion seemed uninterested in my problems or reason for visit, and I was immediately told we needed to make this visit quick as we only had 20min. Since when are doctors office appointments timed? She was condescending, rude and was lacking bedside manner. As a healthcare professional myself, I felt she did not show any genuine interest in taking care of me. She made me feel as if my problems were not actually a problem at all and that I was wasting her time as well as mine. I couldn't even stand to finish the appointment, I left abruptly. As a patient and a nurse, I would suggest Dr. O'Banion brush up on her bedside manner and understand that "normal" is not the same thing for every patient. I will most certainly not be returning.
Dr. O’Banion is friendly and welcoming. She took her time to discuss issues. I liked that she had a very pragmatic approach to the exam- she said, “I generally do or don’t do X for a reason. But if you prefer a different approach, we can do that.” She also clearly communicated a plan and asked my consent and alignment to the plan, and at each step of the process. The overall practice seemed busy but not excessively so- I did not need to wait hours nor did it make Dr O’Banion seem rushed. And appointments were available within a reasonable timeframe when I was booking.
She made me very comfortable about the whole visit.
This was by far the best doctors appointment I've ever had. Fenway Health is inviting, I arrived early and they brought me back ten minutes before my appointment time, and then Dr. O'Banion was amazing. 12/10 would recommend! She was incredibly friendly, down to earth, spent time just talking with me and getting to know me, and established a completely judgment-free and comfortable environment from the minute she walked in. I honestly hate going to the doctor, and rarely find a doctor that I connect with, or that values a connection with me. A+++.
Dr. O'Banion was amazing. She took her time with me and made me feel totally at ease. I felt I could speak honestly and openly about my health history without feeling any sort of judgement from her. Totally professional and with a great bedside manner!
I loved Dr. O'Banion! I stumbled upon her on Zocdoc and am so thankful. I am generally anxious going to new doctors but I am thankful to have found her. She was easy to talk to and seemed genuinely interested in my wellbeing. The office was so inclusive of gender and sexuality which was wonderful. Highly recommend!
Not satisfied with the tests in Annual health check up. I think they should have done blood test, which surprisingly they didn't.
She is a real great doctor.I am generally afraid to visit any doctor but Dr Danielle made the visit so comfortable and patiently heard all my problems (even though I was not making sense ;) ). I am gad I chose her and I would definitely recommend Dr Danielle.
Incredibly helpful, friendly, and easy to talk to. Listened well, helped me address the issues I came in for, and taught me some things I didn't know! I couldn't recommend Dr O'Banion any higher! The rest of the staff were great, too.
She’s awesome and bubbly and very helpful. I would recommend
Amazing doctor who makes you feel totally comfortable, and who is completely non-judgmental. She really wants to help with any issues and make sure that you're comfortable with whatever's being done. I hate going to the doctors, but Dr. O'Banion lightens the mood in all uncomfortable moments. Also, my appointment began right on time. Definitely recommend to anyone who hates doctor visits!
My visit with Dr. O'Banion was great. I went in for my annual physical and she made me feel so comfortable and was completely non-judgmental. I am glad to have found her for my primary care physician.
Dr O’Banion is great! She’s super smart but also really chill. She listens, and was respectful of my thoughts and opinions while also giving me additional information and her analysis to consider. She definitely took the time to make sure I was comfortable with the plan to address the concerns I brought up with her during the visit.
Dr. O’Banion was great! Highly recommend!
No wait to be seen after checking in. Dr O'Banion was super cool and put me at ease.
She was blunt, and like if that is what some people like then she's perfect. But she was too blunt for me and personally did not enjoy this trip to the doctors.
Dr. O'Banion was amazing! I've never felt so comfortable during an exam. We thoroughly discussed my medical and medication history and I never felt pressured to agree to any procedures or new medication.
Couldn't be happier with Dr. O' Banion, she was not only super nice and extremely reasurring but she was also informative and treated me like a friend. Not once did I sense any judgement or negative vibe, which is super rare with Doctors these days. She was super helpful and made me feel so comfortable talking about uncomfortable things. I can't stress enough how happy I am to have found her as my primary care. You can tell she cares about her patients by the way she goes above and beyond to make you feel safe, comfortable, and at ease. Dr. O' Banion if you ever see this, thank you so much!! You have no idea how much you affected my life in a postive way my first visit.
Dr. O'Banion is wonderful! She is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and reassuring. I will definitely recommend her to my friends.
She is awesome! She makes you feel comfortable and will gladly answer your questions with no rush.
Dr. O'Banion is both personable and knowledgeable. She went through the usual questions for a new patient that you'd expect and made me feel comfortable to freely answer.
Dr. O'Banion is an excellent doctor. I am so happy I found her! She was friendly, funny, and very personable. She made what could have been an awkward appointment very comfortable. I highly recommend a to visit Dr. Banion!
My visit with Dr. O'Banion was awesome!! Dr. O'Banion was funny and kind. She spent a good amount of time with me during our appointment and it did not feel rushed. She explained things throughly and spoke to you like you were friends. She was a bit late to our appointment due to needing to spend more time with the previous patient, but she apologized for the delay and said it was not the norm. She was extremely helpful. I highly recommend her. I am so grateful to have found a good doctor in Boston.
Great! Quick and easy, felt very comfortable asking any questions. Very reassuring, helpful, personable.
Incredibly personal, comforting, and welcoming. I really enjoyed my visit!
REALLY liked her!! the only thing i would mention is that when you book an apt through Zocdoc you're given a shorter time for an appointment!
She was awesome. It's been a while since I've had a positive interaction with a physician and she was great. She addressed all of my concerns, and she made follow-up plans for all of the items we were not able to get to during the appointment. I am making her my PCP and going to her with all of my problems and medical concerns.
I went to this appointment seeking a referral for therapy. Dr. Obanion was extremely helpful and listened thourougly to the issues I had. It was the first time I felt there wasn't a huge disconnect between PCP and behavioral health. She was caring and considerate of the situation I presented and assisted me in what ways she could. I'm happy to continue using this doctor as my PCP as well as for any female health issues as she is highly qualified in women's sexual health as well.
Very warm & welcoming to me as a new patient!
Great patient rapport. Very kind and understanding.
She was excellent. I am very happy to have her as my PCP
