Great doc

Dr. Birkhead is the best doctor I have ever seen. His knowledge, experience, compassion, and hard work are evident. I recommend him to everyone who needs a cardiologist because I know they will get the best care. He always takes time to explain each detail to patients and their families so they understand and feel comfortable. He is loyal to his patients and highly trustworthy. He has literally saved my life a handful of times. I'm confident that he is the best of the best and a highly skilled professional!

Good Md bad situation

He'll try. reallly a good guy has done some things no MD would do to help his patient. (given missing records) But then pressure can get to him in doing the right thing. If it wasnt or him i wouldnt know things yet i wish he'd had gone the whole way and said screw "the fellowship" loyalty. He was put in a VERY bad position
