Verified Patient Reviews
Went to see Dr. O'Brien about my skin. Front desk staff was fine - once I was brought back to an exam room I didn't wait long to see the doctor either, which was nice. But when I explained why I was there and showing him what was wrong, he simply brushed me off and told me it was probably nothing and sent me on my way. Well - that nothing turned into a little more and am now going to another dermatologist.
He is Amazing! It's hard to find a doctor that you can be comfortable with but, he's the one. The whole staff is great.
I have been using Dr. O'Brien for many years and find him to be extremely professional and knowledgeable. Would not consider moving to another doctor
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.
I found Dr OBrien soon after moving to Atlanta. He's great, personable, knowledgeable, like meeting with a friend.
Great Doc! Thanks!
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.
Office building was a little dated but the man knew his stuff. He was the 3rd opinion I had gotten for my baby and his advice was spot on. Would visit again.
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.
Excellent doctor. I've been a patient a long time and wouldn't think of going to anyone else. Dr. O'Brien is the best!
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.
Dr. O'Brien is always very thorough and has a great "bedside manner". I will highly recommend him to anyone needing a dermatologist.
He's a good man and a good dermatologist
Excellent doctor. Highly recommend him.
This was my first time seeing Dr. O'Brien and what can I say, but I am very pleased with the service he and his staff provided. The entire visit was very comfortable, staff was very professional, nice, courteous and knowledgeable. If anyone has any issues that require the attention of a Dermatologist, I would tell them don't shop around, just go see Dr. O'Brien!! He is AWESOME!!!!!
Very quick and effective! It's hard for me to make appointments because of my own schedule but I'm going back asap.
Excellent practice. Convenient location, no waiting time, in and out quickly, and Dr. O'Brien was great. I highly recommend this practice.
Always an efficient visit, on time, listens and explains condition.
I've been a patient of Dr O'Brien for almost 15 years. I don't want to see anyone else.
fast, efficient, knowledgeable.
Dr. O'Brien was very friendly and professional. I will return to this office when I need to see a dermatologist.
Friendly and professional. Very experienced. Answered all my questions . Also friendly staff.
Very knowledgeable and experienced
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.
Was seen immediately, great bedside manner. Highly recommended.
I am always satisfied with my services. very professional and always available when requested.
I have been going to Dr. O'brien over 10 years! He is ALWAYS on time and always answer my questions and tend to my needs.
best dermatologist in the city...he makes you feel super comfortable
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.
I will be back
He the best ever. I would recommend anyone to visit this clinic if he/she needs that..
Dr. O'Brien is always very friendly but also very professional. I totally trust his opinions and advice and would highly recommend him to anyone I know.
He was 100% accurate. There were immediate results. He was also very funny.
Dr. O'Brien was very helpful in finding the correct medication for my acne.
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.
Love Dr. O'Brian. He is down to earth, friendly and to the point. Makes me very comfortable.
Not only was Dr O'Brien friendly, thorough and efficient but his staff was great as well. His front office person is extremely professional.
Have been a patient for many years. Dr. O'Brien is an excellent doctor and I always recommend him to others when they're looking for a dermatologist.
I would not visit again. He didn't want to meet my needs. Waisted my time.
Straightforward, easy to understand. I will see him again.
Been a patient for 10 years. Trusted doctor, friendly professional staff.
I would highly recommend Dr. O'Brien.
He was awsome!! He made sure to answer all my questions. And when there was a possibility of discomfort he was gracious enough to distract me. Will return if the need arises.
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.
I thought he was professional and helpful. He addressed all my needs thoroughly. I would go back to him if I needed this type of service again.
He was very personable, really cared, and seems like he is very experienced. He had a great sense of humor as well which made the visit even more pleasent. I love the fact that he sees his own patients and doesn't send in PA's. The overall staff were generous as well. Dr. O'Brien is going to be my go to dermatologist. No more switching around!
Thoughtful and kind. Helpful and happy staff.
It was great. Glad he's my dermatologist.
Have been a patient since 1986, always prompt, efficient and knowledgeable. I moved 85 miles away, but still go back every 6 months for a check up.
He is a great doctor. I'm not sure if the medicine that he prescribed is working because I just started taking it, but he did an excellent job of diagnosing and explaining my condition. I'm looking forward to my next appointment!
As always, I enjoy Dr. O'Brien's great sense of humor while he is giving me a very professional opinion. Thanks, Doc!
What a great doctor
I've seen Dr. O'Brien for years and it's always a pleasure.
Great doctor and great guy!
He wasn't very consoling and didn't ask me very many questions about symptoms or anything.
efficient, friendly (all staff), and effective
Dr. OBrien is great!!! He is very down to earth and makes you feel at ease immediately!! The facility is a bit out dated so don't let that detour you from going!! Highly recommend him!!
He was very professional yet funny and warming. He figured out my problem asap. The only thing is he needs to update his office haha. Other than that I will definitely go back and he will be my regular dermatologist!
Excellent MD. Wellqualified.
A no non-sense guy who is enjoyable to speak with about your medical needs as well as small talk. I knew a Navy guy would be just the ticket...
The experienece in its entirety was superb. I didn't have to wait, and the paperwork was short. The doctor was very personable and sincere. He immediately diagnosed my issue and informed me of all of my options. He even suggested an option that wasn't in his personal finacial interest. I enjoyed the whole experience. Thanks Doc!
Awesome Doc. Knows medicine and funny guy.
Dr O'Brien is a true gentleman and it's a pleasure to see him. He always asks about the family and he's very caring.
You can tell that he is burnt out from his bedside manner. Needs to take a vacation.
He is a doctor worth visiting….

There was no definitive answer for what's going on with me, but Dr. O'Brien was a pleasure to meet.

Dr OBrien is great. He knows what he is doing and plus, he's really funny!
I appreciated the honesty that I received from the doctor.
Really funny guy who diagnoses quickly and isn't afraid to prescribe medication. I have my next appointment in three weeks so let's see how it goes.
Quick and easy. Highly recommend.
Good interaction and quick diagnosis. He even spoke to the pharmacy when the prescription turned out to be too expensive and helped find a cheaper alternative.
Very professional. i was in and out quickly and the staff was very polite as well.
Great as always.

He is friendly and professional. I had an awkward situation to speak about, and he handled it very well.

Excellent as usual.
Very thorough! I felt at ease and like I was in good hands.
Very Professional, helpful, and knowledgeable.
Great, very comfortable atmosphere and definitely took his time making sure there was no rush and wanted to answer any/all questions. Wonderful experience, very thorough.
I started seeing him right after college at Derm Associates and then at the other practice. After 10 years he's still the best dermatologist I've found. He is easygoing and he doesn't prescribe every "new" drug some rep tried to sell him on that week.
Dr. O'Brien was very nice with a great personality. He's been practicing for a long time and it shows.
Fast and professional!
He is a very affable guy with a terrific "bedside manner". He explained every procedure thoroughly and is very ci=ompetent.
After visits with two other doctors, Dr. O'Brien diagnosed my problem immediately. I can not recommend him highly enough.
Dr. O'Brien was right on time, took care of my concerns easily, and was friendly and professional. Also, his assistant was a pleasure and his front office staff person efficient and friendly. I would absolutely recommend Dr. O'Brien for any dermatologic need!
I've been seeing Dr O'Brien for over 20 years. Never had a bad experience.
Great Doctor, true professional.
Very professional and personable. Quick service with good advice.
He was a very professional and polite doctor. I will definetely recommend him to other people.
He was very informative, I'll be returning for another procedure.
Despite my rashes looking odd because of my own hasty attempts at a "cure", Dr. O'Brien was able to correctly diagnose me and greatly relieve my symptoms.
I had an issue and needed to see a doctor right away. I was pleased to find out that I could simply make an appointment online. I searched dermatologists on google in the area at 10:30 at night and was delighted that I could make an appointment on zocdo for the next morning. Upon reading about Dr. O'brien's history, I trusted that he was an experienced doctor. I showed up to my appointment a little early, but the practice were right on track and saw me immediately, which is not usual for anyone familiar with the medical field.
He did not explain to me what kind of problem I got.
It was a very educational appointment. Dr. O'Brien took the time to talk to me about exactly what was going on and why.
Dr. O'Brien has been my Dermatologist for years. Friendly, knowledgeable, professional and trusted.
He was very knowledgable and his nurses were extremely warm and welcoming!!
Dr. O'Brien is great! He was very personable and attentive. He made me feel comfortable and non-intimidated by the doctor's office. The staff are very friendly too. Glad I chose Dr.O'Brien's office.
Made me feel comfortable and felt like he was looking out for my best interest.
A very experienced and knowledgeable doctor. Great people skills. Took several minutes to chat after finishing the diagnosis. Took time to explain the meds and the anticipated result. The building is a bit worn, but his office is light, airy and warm. Staff was professional, but accomodating.
Seemed like a nice enough person, has been doing it a long time. However, he seemed rushed, flustered, and a little burned out... not as thorough as I would have preferred.
He was very professional with a good sense of humor
Pleasant and efficient office practice
