Sara always provides excellent care for my children, she is one of the best around!!
We always have great experiences! Couldn't be more satisfied.
She rocked. Answered all of our questions and treated us with dignity and respect. Great provider would definitely request her for future appts.
Everything was great except the receptionist was obviously annoyed that we came at 4:30 which was the only time I could come without bringing my newborn with me. There should be a cutoff time listed if the office doesn't take walk-ins after a certain point. There was no closed sign on the door until after we left. The hours posted say 1-4:30.
This visit was the first time we saw Sara. She was very kind, very intelligent and my daughter just loved her. We definitely will see Sara again for future visits. I was very pleased.
Sara was excellent. she was very easy to talk to, listened to all concerns, answered all questions, and was so good with my son.
Always happy with care received.
Sara took the time to talk to me about my concerns about my son & insured me that it was the right thing to do by bringing him in. Luckily we were able to see her. I used the walk-in option at the office and never once did it seem like Sara was in a rush or brushed any concerns off. She was caring and gentle.
sara was so nice and took the time with me and my son. my son has a pretty big repository history and Sara knew that! shes not someone we see often.
Always great to see Sara O'Brien! She's wonderful!
Sara is an excellent Dr she takes her time to listen,respectful,kind and show concerns for her patients.
I really liked meeting with Ms. O'Brien even though our appointment was not originally scheduled with her. She listened to me as a parent answered my questions and made me feel comfortable. I will be requesting to see her for future visits for my children.
Sara was very patient with my son abd spoke to him using language he would understand.
very friendly and thorough
It was our first time to see Sara (we usually see Dr. Levin, who we love), and we had a wonderful experience. She was thorough, careful, kind, and great with my kids. I will be happy to see her any time my children need care.
Always great working with Sara O'Brien!
I am very impressed with the kindness of each staff person. Sarah is so good with communication with the kids
Sara was great! She made my apprehensive child feel comfortable and answered my questions confidently.
very happy with everything.
Sara O and Colleen were both excellent!
very professional and knowledgeable
Tricia, the nurse or med. assist. is awesome. she does a great job with kids and parents!!
this doctor was so patient and kind with my very nervous toddler. she related to her better than any doctor and this is the first time in my daughters life (except for as an infant of course) she hasn't cried during the exam. I hope to see more of this provider, she was wonderful, I can't express how great she was and how thankful I am.
Great, thank you!
always pleasant and easy to talk to!
we just love Sara, always so caring! She calls to follow up, just to see if my son was doing better, in the past! I request her when I can, also have referred friends to go to her!!
I would definitely request Dr. O'Brien next appointment needed for my children . She was very thorough with every type of test my daughter needed for her incident at school. Was very comfortable with her decisions and her treatment for my daughter.
We are so, so pleased at the kindness by both Laura at the front desk and by Sara, the provider that took care of us and our daughter. Our daughter is having a hard time emotionally right now, and the staff has been terrific in answering questions for us, referring counseling options and overall, treating our daughter with kindness and respect. She is on the road to recovery. Truly, as mentioned in the first sentence, Laura and Sara were wonderful, and we are grateful for the both of them in the practice.
Sara took the time to really interact with her during her visit making it enjoyable even for my daughter
I was appreciative that my research in diagnosing my sons rash wasn't just blown off and she also researched and brought in a doctor.
Sara should be a doctor, she was AWESOME
Sara did an excellent job with my son! I was very pleased to see how enthusiastic and caring she was throughout the entire visit. All of the questions/concerns I had were answered right away. We will definitely be coming back to see Sara for future visits.
this was the first time I saw Sara & I thought she was fantastic. she explained everything to me in depth & was very kind.
From the moment I signed in, everyone I encountered at this office has been professional friendly and courteous. I am fortunate to have such great care for my child.
She was very sweet, pleasant, and patient with my daughter. We would absolutely see her again.
Sara Obrien has a WONDERFUL patient care manner. She is so positive, helpful, and clear in her delivery. My son had Sara for a sick visit in the fall and I knew immediately I wanted Sara to be the provide for my children going forward. She is fantastic!
very long wait in waiting room and exam room
Dr. Sara is an amazing doctor, she genuinely cares about her patients! Also I really like how much my children like her! Because after all that's very important
Sara is amazing and really listens and takes the time to explain things.she has excellent bedside manner and is so easy to talk to.please let her know how well she is doing!
This was the first time to visit this particular person and she was WONDERFUL! Kudos to you all for hiring such a down to earth and caring person that she can talk so well with teenagers.
this is the first time we saw Dr. brief. I thought she was excellent and she made my daughters feel really comfortable.
The staff was friendly, attentive, and thorough. My daughter felt extremely comfortable.
It was the first time I was treated by nurse Sara O'Bryan. My mom was with me during the appointment. She and I were very satisfied with the way she conducted herself during the appointment. We are happy that she joined our favorite medical practice; yours!
I was especially pleased with Sara O'Brien. I typically visit with the same few Doctors unless of coarse my child needs immediate attention. which happened on this particular day and she was AWESOME! SARA O'BRIEN was great with my child's needs as well as providing my with great detail what illness my daughter had (pneumonia) and the steps she wanted to take to get her well again. I would without a doubt schedule future appointments with Ms O'Brien.
This visit was absolutely wonderful. We were able to get my son on some much needed medicine. Also I asked questions that were unrelated to the reason we had come in. The care provider took time to listen to my concerns and help address them. I left feeing really good about the care my son is receiving.
Disappointed that our appt with dr hart got cancelled and we weren't informed. However Sara was great and I was happy she could see Adalyn.
Sara was extremely polite and took the time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions.
2 offices were combined the day of the visit and the staff did a wonderful job at getting all the kids seen in a timely and efficient manner. great work in an overcrowded space!!!
I have not one complaint. I'm very happy with who I picked to be my child's care provider.
I don't have one bad thing to say. she was amazing with my daughter and putting my mind at ease about things.
Dr. O'Brien was just as friendly, knowledgeable, and polite as the rest of the doctors on staff. It was great meeting her!
Ms. O'Brien was professional, knowledgeable, and kind. She shook our hand and introduced herself (something my husband and I appreciate). She interacted with our nine month old son and he instantly took to her. Her knowledge of his medical history was great, and she answered my many questions with ease. Please pass this on to her. Thank you!
she was wonderful!
she is such a wonderful doctor caring....
