Dr. O'Brien takes time to ask the patient about concerns and medical problems of the patient. She is caring and is always willing to answer questions and explain a diagnosis or test results. Her nurse is cheerful, competent and smooth witha needle. They further honor their patients by keeping schedules on track with almost no waiting time.

I was at evidencing troublesome symptoms that were consistent with a dangerous disease. After ordering the indicated tests, she also decided to check blood work. The bloodwork revealed that a simple vitamin deficiency was the cause of thesymptoms. My feeling is that most doctors would’ve stopped short with the negative results of the major test. I’m so grateful that she was able to diagnose the cause . A great outcome. My wife and I have been Dr. O’Brien’s patients for years. We have always appreciated her work and her professional and accessible manner. Her staff is awesome as well.

Great care, and the whole office communicates well. I booked a 3:45 sick visit last night using Zocdoc, and the office called me this morning to offer an earlier slot (if I wanted) to make sure they would be able to get labs done same day.

Excellent doctor and a well-run office. My appointment was at 2:00 and they were still on schedule. I met with Dr. O’Brien and made it to my 3:00 meeting. Dr. O’Brien got labs back that afternoon and I picked up meds from my usual pharmacy on my way home!

Dr. O'Brien is great! She is down to earth and easy to talk to and has a terrific bedside manner. Several times over the five years I've been seeing her, she has called me herself with test results. Plus, her officeis in a residential neighborhood near Rice University---no dealing with Medical Center traffic and parking! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for a primary care physician.

Dr. O'Brien was recommended by my kids Pediatrician. She really listened to my symptoms and was able to pin point the problem. Other physicians I've seen have been more of a textbook physician. They didn't really listen, they would take longto see me and then rush me out. Dr. O'Brien took the time and made sure she was meeting my health needs. She's great.

Awesome as usual! Sick visit; bypassed minor ER over holiday weekend + few days to get seen by MY doc (& make certain what I had wasn't going to clear in its own). Well worth it. Actually slept most of thefirst night after, and things should get better from here on out. So nice to see someone that keeps up with all my quirks, remembers the last visit, etc. Feel like I'm in good hands with Dr. O'Brien!
