Dr. Erin K Obrien has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

It has been a while since I visited the office, but I have to write a review about this office because I don't want anyone else to have the same experience I did. I actually had an interview with the doctor before I brought my daughter to the practice and liked her very much. That was, however, the last I saw of her. I went to the office several times over the course of three months and saw three different nurse practitioners. I have no problem with that, but they seemed very rushed, and when they didn't know the answers to my questions they would just tell me something that I know is false. I felt like I was annoying them by asking questions. All in all, I'm not sure how bad the problem is as I'm sure that they try very hard. However, when I left this practice and took my infant daughter to another pediatrician they diagnosed two separate problems that she had had for months (the whole time that we were going to the Lake In the Hills practice) and had her well again for the first time in almost a year. So, I feel like the nurse practitioners rushed too much and didn't allow the time for me to ask the questions that would have helped them to help her.
I agree with the recent NP review, visits were not very informative. My biggest issue is a request to provide a vaccine in separate doses (which CDC recommends for age of my children) and they refused saying to expensive for them. Not looking out for patient, looking out for their pockets! We switched! Rating is for overall practice and staff, not soley Dr. Obrien.
I love this practice! I ALWAYS am told who my appointment is with when I make my appointment (I usually forget which one by the time I come in, but EVERYONE is great so it really doesn't matter). The nurses are great & call to check on my children a few days after I call with questions when they are sick. Plus when I actually need to come in for a sick visit I feel like everyone know who I am & who my kids are, etc. It's really comforting to still find that personal touch in such an impersonal age! I am so glad I switched with these docs when they moved out of Crystal Lake/Barrington, it was definately worth it as they always seem to go the extra mile for you. I couldn't imagine being anywhere else especially when it comes to the benefit of my children!!
New patient visit. First visit to this office was not told when I made the appointment that it was with the nurse practitioner. Nurse practitioner could not answer a question about a vaccination, made no attempt to get the answer and asked our 3 year old questions that were not age appropriate. At no point during the appointment did either doctor stop in to introduce themselves. Time to leave, office staff glared at us from behind desk obviously aware of my question they felt I should not have asked. Stood there for 2 minutes waiting to be checked out - finally asked if we needed to do anything else, response was "no, you are done". We will not be returning - have found a wonderful pediatrician in Crystal Lake.
