What People Say About Dr. Daniel Birnbaum, DO
Dr. Birnbaum saw me while I was admitted to the hospital with postpartum preeclampsia and Bells Palsy. The consultation I had with this doctor was nothing short of utterly incoherent. He came into my room to incoherently explain that he believed I was suffering from Bells Palsy and nothing to worry about. Five minutes later, he came back into my room with my obstetrician to tell me there was reason to believe I had a stroke. At the end of the day, after several tests, it was confirmed that I did not have a stroke. Nothing this man said made any sense. I would highly recommend not seeing this doctor.
