Dr O'Brien is my ‚hero‚ and not just my doctor.His recommendations, medical advice and willingness to help with issues related to my health sometimes SURPRISES ME. (He just go out of his way to help. Completely antithetical to how some physicians operate, unfortunately, He always makes me feel I can surmount my ‚health challenges‚.He's a very good doctor and motivates me to challenge myself. Couldn't ask for a better physician.I need more than 5 stars to RATE HIM.
