5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

48 Year Old Mommy Makeover - Portland, OR

Dr. Obrien is professional, serious and inspires confidence. I saw her for the pre-op, but was left with more questions as the surgery date approached and so I scheduled another appointment to see her. She does not make promises that would seem unrealistic, that would make me nervous. I think she sets realistic expectations, and the best part was that the recovery, so far anyway, has been as easy as can be expected and for that I'm just so grateful.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Subglandular Silicone Implants W/ Mini Tummy Tuck and Lipo - Portland, OR

She was amazing. I couldn't have had a better experience. She had wonderful bed side manners and would thoroughly listen to my needs. She actually cared about me as a patient and she didn't try to persuade me into anything I didn't want. She laid out my options and showed me pictures of people that had the same procedure that was done the same way I wanted it done. She was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. She was the best doctor I have ever met and I would recommend her to anyone.

22 Year Old -no Kids- 36 DDD/E - 150lbs - Portland, OR
