Dr. O'Brien is the most caring Dr. I have ever met. I have had every cardiac test I could have including a cardiac catheterization and stent placement. He is a wonderful listener and takes time to explain and reassure. You can tell he truly cares! He has a great personality and you feel comfortable with him. My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend him!! (the office staff is also top notch)

I saw Dr. O'Brien as a result of a referral from another physician and I liked him immediately because of the way he found something we have in common and his relaxed manner. He really listened to my questions and preferences and is taking a very measured approach in my treatment, which I find very reassuring.
