Patient Comments (5)
Ormond Beach, FL |
Really not sure what happened...Dr. Birkedal removed enlarged lymph gland being suspicious of lymphoma because I was in extreme pain and had sudden weight loss of 8lbs in 2 weeks. I was told prior to consider a possible internal hernia. I had 3 E.R. visits at Florida Memorial which was total nightmare all before Birkedal operated. Bottom line..lymph node was benign and I never was told or followed up what caused all the pain and sickness.

Dr. Birkedal is amazing. I had a total Thyroidectomy/Parathyroid removal and an Axillary Mass under my left arm on May 26th, 2016.He made me feel so comfortable before and after surgery. Dr. Birkedal is a very kind, caring, man. Awesome personality making me and my family very comfortable. His staff at the office and hospital are amazing also.

Was warned by GP not to use him for Gallbladder surgery, but due to ER situation, was assigned him for surgery as my choice surgeon was out of town during the emergency.. Birkedal Botched the surgery, sent me home without even seeing me in the hospital and ended up with 3 more ER visits, large drainage bag for 10 days, 4 CT-Scans due to najor leaking and then TWELVE WEEKS of Infectious Disease doctor care to handle rare E-Coli infection..

Horrible experience: He is very enigmatic, poor surgeon, left me with grotesque hernias and did not remove tumors.
in Melbourne, FL |
He and his staff are totally professional, well trained in patient care and concerns of the patient, after care in well beyond what is necessary. Great team.
