Surgery seemed to go smooth but post care was trash. This man spoke to me like I didn't know my own body and spoke down to me like a dog. He even laughed at me for my decision to come to the hospital after going unconscious. He gave me medicines that most likely caused me to need EMS. He contradicted a doctor and a different surgeon who both agreed on the same diagnosis and insisted my concerns where no valid. Avoid this jerk in all regards.

My surgery was a very complicated and difficult one. There were complications which resulted from scar tissue from a previous surgery. I credit Dr. Bird's quick actions with saving my life when I began to hemorrhage during surgery. Dr. Bird is an excellent surgeon who really cares about his patients and his bedside manner is beyond reproach. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing colorectal surgery. He explains everything in detail and takes his time listening to his patient's concerns.

Even though it turned out I wasn't going to be his patient, Dr Bird went above and beyond to smooth the way to get the proper care needed in an expeditious way. It shows the kind of caring person he is. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Bird is one of the those rare doctors that is in it for all of the right reasons. He is incredibly compassionate with an amazing bedside manner. He is thorough with his explanations and is never rushed. Not only is he a wonderful doctor, he just generally a great person.

Dr. Bird ranks up there as one of my all time favorite physicians. He is compassionate and really wants what is best for his patients. He explains, in depth, what his plan will be, and will spend as long as needed at the bedside or in clinic listening to the patient's or their family's concerns. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a Colo-rectal Surgeon. My surgery was a difficult one, but I had my trust in Dr. Bird; if another surgery is ever needed he will be the surgeon I request.

Dr. Bird was very patient in explaining the procedures and answering any questions. Top notch doctor. Would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
