For Dr. O'Brien, caring runs in the family. His father, an internal medicine physician who operated a private practice for 50 years, initially inspired him to pursue cardiology. Shortly after completing his fellowship, Dr. O'Brien would follow in his father's footsteps. For more than 20 years, he practiced general cardiology at the O'Brien Health Center in his hometown of Winooski, Vermont.

Dr. O'Brien believes in not only keeping patients fully informed about their diagnoses, condition, prognosis, treatment options and recommendations, but being ready to support their individual choices. He excels at diagnosing and treating cardiovascular conditions including heart failure, coronary heart disease, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, arrhythmia, hypertensive disorders, pericardial disease and cardiomyopathies.

Married with five adult children, Dr. O'Brien enjoys golf, pickleball, boating, skiing, photography and playing Bridge in his leisure time. He is also interested in the rich culture and history of our region.
