Nothing but good things to say about Dr J. O'Brien and his team, and the care at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda. He was recommended to me and I recommend him to you.

I appreciate Dr. O'Brien trying to help me, but he is another example of a typical surgeon. If something seems not right after surgery, he doesn't want to have to think anymore about the patient. I was sucked in by his sweet and kind demeanor and trusted he was real, that he was smart, and that he knew it was complicated. Doctors don't want complicated patients with complex skeletal issues. Car mechanics, electricians, teachers- if something isn't working, they keep on investigating and trying. I believed Dr. O'Brien was a doctor who was respectful and cared. He had a unique way of giving up - unkind and dismissive. If you are an easy fix, Dr..O'Brien is your man. If he operates and something isn't right afterwards- he is done with you-it is your fault.

Dr. O'Brien corrected a spinal problem which 3 other surgeons prior could not. He gave me my life back. I am forever indebted to him.
