    I don't know Why the Other Reviewers have such a low opinion of Dr. Birch? I know he is a little untraditional in his office, but he also doesn’t have you on a production line like most offices!!Dr. Birch is willing to spend some time with you discussing your issues and different options of treatment, and listens when you talk and will to modify your treatment so that it works best for you. And although he is older, he stays on top the current treatment options and future technology’s !

    Don't trust him...Just don't go see him. Terrible.
    Birch told us numerous times that my grandfather didn't need a CT scan after we begged him for months and months to order one. He continually refused to listen to us. Then grandpas pain got so bad we had to take him to the ER where we found out he has stage four kidney cancer that the hospital doctor said would have been found sooner with a CT scan. Now we are looking at many long months of surgery and chemo, with a poor prognosis.
    He didn't seem to know what he was doing... He was searching his answers to my quations by looking up Wikipedia.
