Dr O’Brien has a passion and heart for what he does. You have concerns he listens and more than that acts. He has amazing bedside manner and if you need 5 minutes of his time or 55 he will take it. Due to that sometimes he may run behind (cca also sometimes overbooks him not his fault) but I would take quality over having to wait a little bit. He saved my life and helps reassure me through ptsd from that life experience at such a young age. He cares about you as a whole person! Recommend 10/10! Also his nurses amazing! AND have a question day or night put it in the portal and he gets back at MAX Within 24-48 hours!
