  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I think the world of Dr. O'Brien. He quickly diagnosed a problem that others did not see. He is kind and warm in dealing with patients.

A good man

Doctor O'Brien's biography states that he was a phrmacist who, after marveling at the effect medicine had on the human body, became enamored with medicine enough to finish medical school. After meeting Dr. O'Brien I was marveling at how good things come in hidden packages. He is not a well known doctor in the Roaring Fork Valley yet he is a gem. He is honest, fair, and most importantly for me: he was easy to see quickly. He quickly addressed my problems but only after a thorough diagnosis by eliminating all that was impossible thus leaving only the truth (as Holmes would say). He is an honest doctor and a good man whom I would recommend not just because he seems to truly care but because he doesn't carry an air of elitist superiority or entitlement that accompanies many a doctor when they walk in the door. He's not fun-loving, easy-going or excitable. What he is is easy-to-see, composed and articulate. He's a good phsyician, plain and simple.
