I’ve been seeing Dr. Obrien for about 10 years. She’s very kind, takes time with you and you don’t feel rushed. Very easy to talk to and you will be taken care of. I especially like the fact that I canhave all my testing done inside the building. I don’t have to leave and go to med center...uggg. Most of all I feel safe with all bases covered when I see her.

I was amazed at how little waiting time there was. The nurse was very friendly and efficient. I also only waited a few minutes for the dr. She was focused on me, and I really appreciated that she took notes ratherthan entering the info into the electronic records. Doing so meant that she often looked at me. I felt like I was talking to a caring dr and not a stenographer. My only question is why have me fill out a history and then ask me all of the same questions again. Minor issue in an otherwise great first visit.

The doctor was great. I really like her, and, after a long search for the right doctor, really feel like she is the right doctor for me. But her nurse is so unhelpful and it is impossible to get through toher when you need to follow up with the doctor. You are automatically sent to the nurse's voice mail, who doesn't return calls. I have been calling her nurse to have the doctor call in a prescription the doctor wants me to take, and set up a follow up appointment, and I have no idea whether or not Dr O'Brian even knows that I am trying to get things moving. And no matter when I call I get the nurses' voice mail and no one is calling me back. mails. And now it seems they have taken Dr O'Brian's availability off of Zoc Doc so I can't even book an appointment myself. It's very frustrating working with the nurse who is so unresponsive. It's a shame because I'd like to keep seeing Dr O'Brian, but I might have to find another doctor because of how difficult it is to get through to her nurse.

Dr. O'Brien is friendly and cheerful, but professional. She takes the time to talk with me - and LISTEN! She is conservative - not given to reaching for a prescription pad unless it is warranted. I trust her medical judgement and highly recommend her.
