BAD Experience, 6/29/2010

I saw Dr. O'Brien five years ago for a small rash on my hand. He spent very little time with me and decided he needed to cut part of the rash off to test it. I was told it would not scar. The result... was a very minor "dermatitis" and I have a scar 5 years later.

I Liked Him, 3/14/2010

I'm sorry that Dr.Obrien has been reviewed poorly. He never seemed rude to me, but I am male and near his age and circumstance. I liked his work and I liked him. The only part that I couldn't... tolerate was Dr.Obrien's front office--a lazy, bored, condescending male with a serious attitude problem. I wish he worked elsewhere.

one of the worst dermatologist ive ever visited..

my first time going there on 9/17/09 would be my last..the male receptionist treated me like a 2cnd class citizen with the insurance that i presented to him (medicare)he purposely embarrassed me when i told him (medicaid)was my secondary insurance...to make things worse once seen by DR.OBRIEN..he only spent no less than 5 minutes with me and made alot of joking remarks which were unprofessional..didnt seem at all interested in knowing me as a new patient and what my main concerns were..and before he left..he patted me on the head and said ''atta girl'' like im some animal...mind you that i am african american.I will never go back to his office again, the only person who made me feel comfortable was his nurse,she listen to me and explained to me what i was taking.

Very Rude Doctor

I agree. Dr. O'Brien was very rude to me when I went to him several years ago. I also agree that he has no respect for his patients. I left him and went to another practice that was more up to date on new medications and more progressive than Dr. O'Brien -- and they were nicer to me.

Not a Great Listener or Communicator

Dr. O'Brien is very old school in his style and communication methods. He does not pay very good attention to your questions and he is typically extremely rushed in his manner. I have been frustrated a number of times because I don't feel like I can talk to him. He is about 68 years old, so he is not going to change any time soon. If you need or want to actually talk out treatment options with a doctor, he is not for you. If you have a simple, one-off problem and you live close to his office, then maybe try him out.
