Ratings for Dr. Maureen O'Brien
Ms O'Brien should be striped of her credentials! I spent 10 years with surgeries by a podiatrist and recently the podiatrist suggested injections although he had already administered them in the past. After my appt w/my family doc for a referral, I was informed that Ms. O'Brien will not take me in. She insisted I go to a podiatrist for injections. I was surprised that she DID NOT view my xrays or ultra sounds. She made a diagnosis based on here say! What a shame our medical profession has become a mockery in Canada. She should not be performing any patients! I WILL lodge a formal complaint within the Board of Orthopedic Surgeons. Until then, PLEASE DO NOT see this unreliable and uneducated person who really does impersonate a caring and compassionate profession.
I found her rude and had no consideration for me as a patient, no people skills whatsoever. This was my third time to see her, her knowledge of me as her patient changed from visit to visit. From the lack of considering her voice was loud, she spoke to me in the hallway within ear shot of all the other patients, when I asked if we were going into the examining room she pointed towards it and then proceeded to leave the door ajar. Obviously she needs to either retire or at least try to listen to the patient. Belligerent, pompous and rude individual. I would never recommend her to anyone as she can't remember what she tells you from one visit to the next and spends no time explaining anything, longest wait and quickest doctors appointment I have ever had. Will definitely go to someone else....
Within five minutes Dr. O'Brien called me a liar and a cheat. She said I was obviously too self-centered to be a candidate for surgery for her. She told me all she had eaten that day was a boiled egg. She told me I should try it sometime,. When I explained my history to her she told me it was impossible, no one could do what I claimed and still be in the condition I was in. She was belligerent, rude and mean-spirited. I would not want anyone with an attitude like that coming near me with a knife if any sort. I believe she knows her stuff and she was kind and gentle to my mum who is the same body-type I am. Guess I caught her on a bad day, but don't want to gamble that the day she operates on me is a good one.
Receptionist is horrible, never answers or calls back,is rood and pressuring on personal issues that is for the doctor to ask. Dr. O'Brien did surgery and I am now permanently injured. I am on disability and have been told I cannot return to work yet,I feel this ma have been prevented but I was not informed about all after surgery procedures and obvious problems were ignored until they were too late. The staff and the Dr rushed through appointments. Its like an assembly line and then when u call to ask a question u can't get through. Very unimpressed. She makes 300000+a year and we get 5min sessions with her, where things are not explained in full or warning signs of a problem is overlooked or brushed aside.
My grandfather had such a bad experience with this Dr! She refused to help him and said she wouldn't help him she didn't have time...we are so mad and sad my grandfather has to suffer because she can't get off her high horse! Boycott this Dr as she has no empathy!!
Had a great experience with a 5th metatarsal that was surgically repaired. If you're looking for a doctor to sugar-coat things and make you feel all warm and fuzzy, this is not your doc. If you're looking for someone to bluntly tell you what is going on and how best to fix the situation (even if it's not what you want to hear), then go and see her (ex. "PT before the surgery is a waste of money, take your girlfriend out instead" - which was great to hear). 4 years later my foot is great and I referee hockey and basketball, and run 10k with no issues.
I have been seeing Dr. O'Brien for approx. 2 years now. I had the fresh eating disease which cause a lot of problems in my foot leading to fusion surgeries. Although straight to the point Dr. O was throughout and caring when it came down to it. She did not rush to the worst case scenario when planning the process but worked to offer me the best quality of life and use of my foot. She continues to help me to the best of her ability.
