Bad Doctor

I saw Dr. Birnbaum three times for the same problem. Misdiagnosed on all three visits. One visit he told me I had meningitis, but never sent me for a spinal tap which is mandatory if meningitis is suspected in case it's the bacterial type.

If you have any ongoing medical needs you'd be better off with someone else who is better about follow through and follow up with patients. He left his practice and left me without proper follow up with my home health care and my infusion needs and no port care and supplies. Be careful with this man and keep on top of your own medical care.

I think Dr. Birnbaum is an astute diagnostician, but a bit hyperactive. I like him.

rude doctor

I didnt like his firm rudess. I told him i have had a long time oain in my lower right side back to my hip and leg. So he stands up press really hard on my lower back. He asked me if it hurt well yes it did when he was pushing very hard on my lower back. He told me what was causing the pain and gave me muscal relaxers and told me to put ice on it. He didnt order any test to see what was wrong. I so dont like this doctor at all.
