I have been seeking treatment for unsightly toenails from fungus infection for more than 20 years. I have tried all types of topicals from over the counter to prescription as well as dangerous oral medications. I have never seen more than minimal improvement. Dr Birch suggested Pinpointe Laser. I tried it and within 3 months I started seeing new nail.. It is now 1 year and my nails are almost like new again. I would recommend this to anyone with toenail fungus

I had been seeing another Podiatrist for years and he retired. I tried the new doctor that took over the practice and said never again. I searched my neighborhood and read Dr Birch's reviews. He was everything people said about him and more. He is thorough, caring, kind and someone I felt comfortable right from the start. I am so happy I found him.

My toenails were terrible and I was told by several other podiatrists that I needed to take medication. I was afraid of the side effects so I never took the medication. I then found Dr Birch who suggested pinpoine laser without side effects. My nails have improved dramatically. This is the way to go.
