in Seattle, WA |
Incredibly kind, knowledgeable and skilled. The entire office was great to work with. I was concerned what my hand would look like post-Moh's surgery, and couldn't be happier with the results.
in Bothell, WA |
Dr. Birkby is an incredible skin cancer doctor. He is so easy to talk with and he always explains what he is doing and why. He's also very patient with my many questions. His medical practice is the most efficient one I have ever experienced. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating and it's obvious they really care about their patients. At Seattle Skin Cancer Center, they view each patient as a client - and provide outstanding customer care and service.
