Accepting new patients

My father was a doctor and I was always in awe of his ability to help people and make a difference in their lives, so I always knew I wanted to be a physician. The clinical faculty I trained under was amazing and influenced my choice to go into hand surgery. In addition to my one-year fellowship in hand and upper extremity medicine, I obtained an additional fellowship in upper extremity trauma in Bern, Switzerland. I perform all of the latest procedures available in my field. I feel it is important for a surgeon to have the right balance of clinical experience to keep their skills and knowledge current. I have been practicing long enough so that I have seen just about every imaginable condition, yet I am current on all of the latest procedures and techniques. Most of my surgeries are scheduled at NorthBay Surgery Center VacaValley in Vacaville, which is a beautiful, state-of the-arts facility. Patients should choose NorthBay because there is nothing that I can't do locally, just as well or better, than the academic surgeons can do in San Francisco. At NorthBay, patients are more than numbers, appointments, and medical records; our patients are our neighbors and community members. The VacaValley Wellness Center environment for rehabilitation is a great fit for my patients. It is very important to me that my patients can comply with their care regimens whether they have surgery, injections, or more conservative treatment.

Let me start by saying that Dr Birkbeck is one of the nicest people I have met since moving to the North Bay three years ago. Not only is he a very gifted surgeon and family man but also just a down to earth approachable guy that likes to Mt Bike. I sought out Dr Birkbeck and his team specifically because he specializes in hand and wrist surgery. My experience was absolutely wonderful from the initial consultation to the final follow up appointment. I was also seen by one of the groups PA?s Alex
