I had had what I thought was a headache for 18 yrs and was given different types of pain meds but my headache never left. Dr. Birkmann figured it out!! He has good bedside manners and a good sense of humor.

I HAD A BALANCE PROBLEM SEVERAL YEARS AGO. I HAD VERTIGO AND WENT TO DR. BIRKMANN. HE HAD ME WALK DOWN THE HALLWAY AND SEE HOW I WALKED. MY WIFE AND I WERE VERY UPSET WITH HIM BECAUSE WE ALREADY KNEW HOW I WAS WALKING. HE DID NOTHING MORE. HAD TO GO TO A SPECIALIST IN OMAHA TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.MY DOCTOR TOLD US ,IF YOU DON'T LIKE HIM, YOU WON'T LIKE ANY OF THEM ,BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL TOGETHER. THIS IS VERY SAD THAT A TOWN THE SIZE OF LINCOLN HAS TO SETTLE FOR THIS.MY SON WENT IN LAST WEEK--SAME
