Patient Comments (2)
in Lakewood, NJ |
I have been a patient of Dr. Birnbaum's for more than 3 years. Personally I think him to be an excellent doctor and a sweet man. However over the past few years the staff working at his office have been very rude and have shown themselves to be incompetent. Each time I have called the office to request a refill for my prescriptions I am treated very nastily by his staff and am talked down to. It has gotten to the point where I can't get my prescriptions straightened out anymore! Never again!

I have been going to Dr. Birnbaum for over ten years now. He is a doll--very attentive to you and your medical diagnosis, to you and your questions and to your prognosis. He tells you the truth; he reads your blood tests to you, not just the part that concerns your Thyroid and Metabolism, but the ENTIRE lab work. He is NOT a doctor that writes prescriptions and shoves you out the door. He cares about his patients. I recommend him without any hesitation.
