excellent care

I came into the er recently with a small bowel obstruction. I have had gastric bypass in another town with another dr. This was my first time seeing dr. Birkitt. I was a bit nervous! He explained everything that was going on to me. He decided to do the surgery very quickly instead of wasting time and making me suffer. He did a great job and I am healing well. He is an excellent doctor. He cares about his patients. I am so glad he was my surgeon.

The Best

In my opinion he cannot be over rated. He did my surgery in 1999 and I have done excellent, it is now May 2010. I know just what to expect, was given complete directions on how to care for myself,what the out come would be if I did or didn't. I love the staff and especially his assistant, so very up on every part of my treatment, follow ups etc. Thanks Dr. Birkitt and associates
