Dr. Birkett is (and has been for the 30 years I have known him) an extremely skilled surgeon who treats his patients with the utmost courtesy and respect. I had a difficult abdominal surgery and he was extremely attentive with my post op care (7 days inpatient and I saw him at least daily if not more.)

Worst hospital/doctor visit ever. He wouldn't let me get a word out of my mouth. He interrupted me while i was talking constantly and then dismissed me saying he couldn't feel the massive lump that's in my stomach that every other doctor didn't have a problem feeling out. I've never been more furious.
