Dr. O’Brian has been taking care of me for several years. I first met him when he was taking care of my Mother. When she had to go to a nursing home he was there for me. He helped me understand when she died. I asked for facts about her dying. He answered my questions honestly. He has always been honest with me. He has a good sense of humor as when I asked him about losing weight, his response… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. The lab findings, tests and screening results from the annual MDVIP Wellness Program allow us to work together to create a more individualized wellness plan. I find that the enhanced doctor-patient relationship offered in my practice combined with the services included in the annual MDVIP Wellness Program are tools that, if properly followed, can potentially help extend the number of healthier or disease-free years of life.
I was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware. Both of my parents were physicians, as
are two of my siblings. I am a graduate of Columbia University with a degree in applied physics engineering. I worked for a local chemical company before realizing that it was not my calling. I have been practicing with an individualized approach to medicine since I completed my medical degree at Jefferson Medical College and residency at Christiana Care more than 20 years ago.
I am a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Delaware
Academy of Medicine and an appointed clinical instructor for the ChristianaCare Family Medicine Residency Program, as well as for Jefferson Medical College. I am affiliated with the ChristianaCare system.

Dr. O’Brien is an excellent diagnostician. He is a doctor who intently listens to his patients then, thoughtfully asks questions. Often he’ll consult a web site that can help me but most often he quickly diagnoses the problem. He is never hesitant to consult another doctor if necessary, or order tests to aid in his diagnosis. He also recommends specialists who treat specific ailments or… See more
