Specialties

Dr. James J Obrien has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

When you have a scheduled appt - arrive ahead of schedule - then sit in waiting room for 1-1/2 hours - then the nurse comes out and calls in 4 patients confirming time of appt which all turn out to be for same time slot - then you sit in room for another 45 minutes - by this time it's well past lunch time and you're starving to death - the nurse arrives - you tell her you are starving and want to know if they are going to serve lunch - and her comment is "Dr. O'Brien is a very busy man and when you schedule appt there is no sense in rushing because there will be at least a two hour wait" well, there is something g wrong there. Then nurse tells O'Brien we are not happy and he comes in with and attitude. He gave us 20 minutes of his time which then consisted with in correct info in his report meaning he was not paying attention. We found him obnoxious, high almighty attitude, inconsiderate, especially selfish and uncaring since he made so many people wait. Perhaps We should include GREED in there. So sorry we hung around but you can be sure we did not do a followup with him.
