Excellent surgeon and doctor. Same problems as mentioned in other comments - no call backs; getting through to the reception by phone is next to impossible. I have to exercise persistence with calls to get my father in for follow up appts. We are not done with his treatment yet.
Dr. O'Brien just performed surgery on my mother's only good eye. Actually stopped by the waiting room to tell me how she was doing which was and is great. Very best with a great bedside manner. Excellent dealing with Dr. O'Brien and his staff at his office and the hospital.
I had surgery in Feb 2013 and after a considerable wait for my appointment I was extremely pleased with Dr. O'Brien's with manner and skill. What a kind, soft spoken gentleman. We are so very lucky to have and keep such an excellent Doctor in the Maritimes. Well worth waiting for him.
We've only Met Dr OBrien twice and the second time it was for surgery. He has an excellent bed side manner,but again I have to agree with the above. The admin doesn't answer phone calls or return them and we are still waiting for a check up after surgery,over a month!!!! Just called again today and a replacement receptionist answered who can't even find my file.
Dr Dan is great if you can get to see him, The office help (Tina ) is some thing else very lax in keeping up appointments and follow up ,,can never reach the office by phne when appointments are due and have waited over 6 mos ( late ) , for my check up that is due once a year
Dr. Dan OBrien is excellent! A great man & doctor. I probably have some sight today because of him. Great skills & "bedside" manner. Explains everything so you know what is going on. The only negative thing I could say is the almost impossibility of getting in touch with his office or making appointments with him. His practice is so busy that at times over the years it seemed I was waiting endlessly (with no contact from his office) in hopes of seeing him so that he might be able to help me with my failing vision.
Dr O'Brien Sr was the best in Canada. Had to give up surgery because of age so sent me to his son Dr Dan. Both these Drs saved my sight. Being diabetis over 47 years its a wonder I have sight at all but after surgery, each did an eye over time, I don't need laser and haven't had any for 5 years. Appts are hard too get but when I get thru to Tina I usually get in soon. Dr Dan also seems my daughter and granddaughter as well and always asks about them when I see him, now only once a year. Dr O'Brien Sr always has a hello ... how you doing ... when I am in the office. He's not listed for a rating. Dr Dan is the most pleasant Dr I have ever met and I've seen many over my years as a diabetic. Dr Sr retired on me as are a lot of my professionals. Being going to the O'Brien "family" since 1975. At least Dr Dan should be around for awhile.
