  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

One Star

As self-centered as they come. Couldn't take a different perspective to the point of being rude (threatened) when asked intelligent questions about my wife's treatment.

patient of many years

I very picky about Doctors as my grandfather and several uncles are in the field. I highly recommend Dr. O'Brien to all my friends and family. She has a practical and no-nonsense approach to care, which I enjoy. She smiles, educates, and lays out the options, which is what I prefer from a Doctor. Further, she is not married to the strict medical model but appreciates all avenues of healing, which is why I trust her knowledge far more than that of other doctors. She researched and correctly diagnosed what was wrong with my mother after numerous misdiagnoses from other doctors and hospitals--now that's commitment. And several times she helped us thin out the cocktail of meds the staff doctor from the nursing home kept trying to give her.
