in Red Bluff |
Dr. Birk is a kind doctor. He took time to explain my conditions to me. My headaches and back pain r gone because of him. THANK u Dr. Birk
Clarkston, WA |
This man should not be practicing medicine. Rude and abusive are polite words. Insulting to clients and uncommunicative. He treats them like they are wasting his time. This man doesn't understand (or maybe doesn't care) about how vulnerable the client is coming in to get examined. Unbelievable.
in Anderson, CA |
They have a horrible receptionist name Anna she is very rude and not a friendly or happy person if you love yourself and family don't go here unless she is fired.
in Redding, CA |
Dr Birk has the best knowledge out of every Neurologist I went to in Redding. I had a condition other Redding neurologists couldn't diagnose for 4 years. I went to Dr Birk and within 1 appointment he diagnosed and started me on treatment. Now, I am finally pain-free. It is is blessing. His skill and knowledge is 11/10! And he cares about you
Chicago, IL |
If I could give a negative 5 I would. He has absolutely no bed side manner. I've never had such an awful experience with someone who should be both professional and compassionate. Save yourself a huge Hassel and avoid this "doctor" at all costs. He has no interest in helping anyone, he will rush and shame you.
in Palo Cedro, CA |
Great neurologist. Spends time with me, knowledge is high. He is a good listener. Nice staff. Office is big and new.
in Red Bluff, CA |
He is not a nice person, and his staff is worse. I'm looking for a new Dr. I've been seeing him for about 5 yrs to long I should have switched Drs long ago.
