Verified Patient Reviews
Exactly as expected for a routine physical along with some recommendations based on previous health history
As always, Dr. O'Brien was friendly, helpful, and very professional. I trust her recommendations and actually ENJOY my annual physicals.
A bit disorganized, which is quite unusual. I got the impression that the clinic was still working the kinks out of their Zocdoc association.
I always feel comfortable evrytime I visit Dr. O’Brien! Her staff is very caring and helpful! Dr. O’Brien takes the time to talk with me and not make me feel as if she’s trying to rush to another patient.
She was very attentive
She is sincere and eager to address health concerns. She is always pleasant and patient.
Very personal, it’s nice to have a relationship that doesn’t feel like a “business”.
I so appreciate that Dr O'Brien does a thorough exam and addresses all my questions in a professional and friendly manner. I feel confident in her ability to best manage my health care. Thank you!

Dr. O'Brien is very easy to talk with & understanding. She always has time to answer any questions. I always write down questions ahead of time to make the best use of her time & my time.
Dr O’Brien is very knowledgeable and thorough. She doesn’t just send you out the door with a prescription. She looks for the correct diagnosis which is why I left Louisiana to se
I have been seeing Dr. O’Brien for several years. She’s absolutely my favorite Dr. ever. She always makes me feel that’s I’m her only patient and really listens to my concerns.
It was great. She was very helpful!
Thorough and helpful.
Dr. O’Brien always takes the time necessary to hear and address all of my concerns about my health. I highly recommend her.
D. O'Brien is an extremely knowledgeable and listener.
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 rather than 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.
Great experience with Dr. O'Brien and her office staff. Very friendly, amazing bedside manner and she was able to treat me almost immediately after telling her my symptoms.
Dr. O'Brien and staff are very pro. Dr. O'Brien listens to your questions and provides thoughtful answers.
Dr. O'Brien is very pleasant and a good listener.
She's very attentive to your needs.
Dr. O'Brien is the best, most thorough, patient and compassionate doctor I've ever had. I have referred all my friends and family to her!
Slightly old school office . Not much hi tech here but Dr O’Brien was great
I love Dr. O'Brien. She is a great doctor who listens to her patients. I never feel rushed when I am with her.
She made me feel comfortable and her Staff was really nice.
Great service and location...all tests ordered done at same location at time of visit
Dr. O'Brien is a good doctor and I have confidence in her treatment and her care of me.
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 to her 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.
Everyone at the clinic is very friendly and helpful. The doctor is kind, a good listener and compassionate. Her nurse is the best at doing blood work, I didn't feel a thing and we were done. They really care about their patients.
Dr. O'Brien answered all of my questions and her team was very organized and on time.
The doctor was great until she didnt send in the medications she wanted me atart right way due to heart conditions. And her nurse Jessica didnt seem to care or really answer any simple questions ... to top it off they were so rude when checking out .... im suppose to go back for a follow up but im debating if i should go
Very comfortable to talk to.
During my visit I appreciated the way Dr. O'Brien was attentive and took the time to answer my questions in an easy to understand manner. In addition she was authentically positive and encouraging. Also, other office personnel and nurses were friendly and helpful. I plan on recommending her to a friend.
Dr. Kelly took extra time to answer my questions.
Absolutely loved her! She really sits down and listens and doesn't rush to finish the consultation like many doctors I've been to tend to do. She really demonstrates that she cares and that she is there to help. Definitely recommend her and will continue to see her.
She is great!
Great doctor. Helpful, took time to listen and ask questions. I highly recommend her and the whole office!
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.
Fantastic experience. Professional, friendly, and quick staff. Dr. O'Brien was friendly, informative, and professional. Definitely found my PCP.
I really appreciated that they worked me in and saw me so fast.
Precise, clear, competent.
Dr. O'Brien is a very caring professional individual. She doesn't rush you, but sits and listens to your concern. You don't ever feel that any questions or concerns are stupid. I also feel better informed when I leave the office.
I was referred to Dr. O'Brien by a friend. Setting up an appointment was super easy and when I got there, the staff was very warm and friendly. The nurse and Dr. O'Brien were great. Would recommend them!
This was the best experience ever, and the doctor was great!

Very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and willing to listen and exchange ideas.
It was great. Very easy to talk to and very helpful with my questions and concerns.
The best doctor I have EVER seen! She is a great listener and extremely thorough.
Great! She listens to my concerns. She seems to always right on target on the diagnosis. She gets to the bottom of things quick. If you need a specialist, she makes it happen. I really feel I am in good hands with her. If you need to be seen, they get you in there. In when waiting room, I barely get to sit down and relax and they are calling my name. Her staff is really great too. Cat Ingram
Wait time was less than 15 minutes. Dr. O'Brien listened to my story, was re-assuring about my concerns, and shared her diagnostic and treatment strategy in a professional manner.
She actually takes time to meet with you, explain what is wrong, give you an action plan, and follow thru. Overall one of the best doctors I have ever seen.
Excellent visit! I really liked Dr. O'Brien.
She is a very caring doctor, always takes time to listen to your concerns and does what is needed.
I have seen Dr. O'Brien several times over the past few years. She is always friendly, articulate, easy to talk to and ask questions. She never seems in a rush, and seems very reasonable in the number of tests she orders during my visits. The purpose of these tests has always been explained to me in detail. The rest of the staff at the clinic is also very polite and straightforward.
Dr. O'Brien was very nice and welcoming, went in just for a physical the staff is helpful as well, would recommend her!
Very easy to talk to and she listens very well to assess the situation. She is genuinely concerned about her patients and how to ensure their well being.
Best doctor around!!!!
Dr. O'Brien is courteous, professional and genuinely cares about her patients. I have visited her office on several occasions and would visit again. She follows up with an explanation of the results of your blood tests which I found to be very beneficial.
I would recommend her.
Dr. O'Brien was fantastic! Talking with her while she took my history almost felt like chatting with a warm, kind, incredibly knowledgeable friend -- she was of course professional in her demeanor and examination but I felt at ease and in good hands during the visit. I also felt truly listened to -- whereas other doctors have brushed off my concerns or explained them away as predictable side effects of medication, Dr. O'Brien thought through all the factors that might be contributing to my symptoms and took the extra time to ask me relevant follow-up questions. It didn't seem at all rushed and I felt like she spent the appropriate amount of time talking with me. In addition, bloodwork can be done right in your exam room, and the nurse I had was pretty friendly and efficient. Overall a very positive experience. My one complaint is that the receptionists were terse and unfriendly, and they seemed to resent any patients who had questions or needed more help understanding how to fill out forms. That said, the waiting room quite nice (free coffee!), parking was fairly easy (albeit a bit hard to find the first time), and the office is not in the med center (a huge bonus for me), so I'll definitely be returning nonetheless.
Wonderful I felt very comfortable discussing my issues and she listened and was knowledgeable and gave me good advice and next steps to resolve
She's thre best

Dr. O'Brien was wonderful. I got to the office 15 minutes early to fill out new patient paperwork and was called back before I could finish it, definitely before my actual appointment time. She was very personable and made me feel comfortable talking about my concerns, I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a general physician!
