Uma (Nadiminti) O’Brien, MD, FAAD

Patients Say:

“Dr. O’Brien is an extraordinary doctor. She remembers everything I have ever told her about my personal life and medical issues. She is warm and the embodiment of what a doctor should be. Having a full body skin exam can be daunting, but she makes it as bearable (excuse the pun) as possible. I have recommended her in the most glowing terms to my friends.”

“Dr. O’Brien is unmatched in her thoroughness, care, communication and approachability.”

“Dr. O’Brien is excellent. I feel very comfortable with her and trust her completely!”

Dr. O’Brien Says:

“The most rewarding part of being a doctor has not changed for me since medical school. It is truly the ability to help another person and making a difference in someone’s life. It is such a privilege and honor to be able to take care of someone, help someone through illness, and encourage the maintenance of good health. An extremely rewarding part of my practice is educating my patients about the signs of skin cancer and importance of sun protection.

There are many personal, professional and volunteer experiences that have led me to the practice of medicine, and have helped me become the person I am today. My long-standing and deep connections with my patients have shaped me professionally and personally. As physicians, we are in this journey of life with our patients. We are their partners in sickness and in health, and through times of sadness and joy. I am truly grateful for my patients, for what they have taught me, and for the impact they have had on me in becoming the physician I am today.”
