Receptionist/nurse was great! Very quick and efficient. Dr. O'Brien was a quirky fellow, loved to chat, but very good at keeping me at ease. He answered my questions and dealt with my slight overreactions very positively. He had a grandfather-esque quality about him.

My experience was aweful. He showed me a picture and said this is what you have and when I asked questions about the diagnosis he told me I could look it up on Google. He was very short and didn't inspecty face at all. He told me there wasn't much he could do either. So as he left I reverted back to the book with the picture he showed me and when he walked back in the room he snatched it out of my hands and said you don't need to look at that. I cried when I left. I felt so mistreated when I was trying to get help and answers to why my face was reacting to something. I would never recommend him to anyone he does not listen to what you are saying.Dr. O'Brian prescribes you something and sends you on your way.

I have been going to Dr. O'Brien for years. While having skin treatments is never a thrill, Dr. O'Brien always keeps you laughing and engaged with his personality and stories. His office staff is equally as friendly and engaging. He never does anything that he does not feel is unnecessary just to get extra billings. I have recommended him in the past, and would again.

The building the office was located in is completely run down and the smell in the hallway should have been my first warning sign. There was a short wait to see the doctor. The man at the front desk was incredibly nice. Dr. O'Brien wasn't very pleasant and I felt like I was being rushed out due to the nearness of lunch. He recommended that I see an allergist for my problem without even looking at it. He did not have any recommendations for allergists and he didn't want to see the problem - either in person or in photos. He wasn't very friendly, approachable and he made constant remarks about newer, younger practices. He seems like a very 'old school' doctor and I would not recommend him.

I was generally unsatisfied. The doctor saw me right away and identified two common issues, for which he prescribed 2 drugs. I was told by another dermatologist that one of the conditions definitely did not require taking a drug (which he prescribed), and I read the same information online. He showed me a book of skin conditions to read about, but the book looked like it was from the 60s. Also, he didn't do a full body scan which is what I had gone in and paid for, but when I asked at the front they told me he doesn't believe in checking people in their 20s. I feel as though my entire visit was a wast.

It was a dual 1st. 1st for zocdoc and 1st for the doctor. The office visit was most pleasant. Friendly staff, short wait to see the doctor. Doctor was kind, informative, attentive. I didn't leave feeling as if I were just a number. Will recommend Dr. O'Brian as well as zocdoc.

Probably the most jubilant doctor I've met in my 10 years of living in the US. I've recently moved to another CO., and I still drove two hours through the I-75 morning traffic just to come see Dr. O'Brien today. He is extremely knowledgeable, and makes one feel comfortable at all times.

Dr. O'Brien and his staff were exceptionally kind and personable. Dr. O'Brien had incredible bedside manner, and didn't make you feel rushed. He has been doing this for a long time and knows his stuff. Yes, the office is in an old building, but previous comments had mentioned that so it wasn't a surprise. Didn't bother me at all. It was clean and the care is the most important thing.
