Middletown Medical, the Hudson Valley’s premier provider of healthcare services, has announced the addition of Dr. Michael R. O’Brien. Dr. O’Brien will use his expertise as a board-certified pediatrician and internal medicine physician to provide healthcare to patients of all ages.
Dr. O’Brien has owned and operated Beacon Pediatrics and Primary Care, a private practice out of his home in Beacon, as a generalist physician practicing pediatrics and internal medicine.
“It is one thing to have a doctor you trust, but it is an exceptional treat to share that doctor with your family,” said Melissa Wolff, Middletown Medical’s Marketing Director and Physician Recruiter. “Dr. O’Brien’s experience qualifies him to care for children and adults, and his kindness and compassion is a prize to patients looking for a primary care doctor for both themselves and their children.”
Dr. O’Brien completed his residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University at Buffalo, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. He was then awarded a health services research fellowship at Yale University through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program. There, Dr. O’Brien focused on healthcare systems redesign, clinical epidemiology, and improving the quality of healthcare delivery in small primary care practice.
Dr. O’Brien received clinical experience as a pediatric hospitalist from St. Anthony Community Hospital and Vassar Brothers Medical Center. He served as an adult hospitalist with St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital and Orange Regional Medical Center. He has spent summers as a children’s camp doctor, supervising on-site nursing staff and seeing acute/urgent care pediatric patients.
Dr. O’Brien earned his Doctor of Medicine from State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, the College of Medicine and his Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University at Albany, State University of New York.
