Patient Comments (1)
in Frederick, MD |
Dr. Birns has taken care of my digestive issues for years. He has always been attentive and shared all of the options for my care. He always consults with me about what are the next steps to resolve the current issues and how to prevent future problems. Without getting into my medical history, he has made a tremendous difference in the quality of my life. I think the world of him and his staff. My wife has had similar results.
