      I would give more than 5 stars if I could! Where do I start. Dr. Bindorf is incredibly knowledgeable and skillful. I really appreciated that he took his time with the consult and covered each point of discussion thoroughly and made sure I was fully aware of what to expect, important factors I should consider, and really helped me set realistic expectations for the procedure I was requesting. I came to Dr. Bindorf to reverse a procedure I had done 5 years ago by a different doctor and felt like he did a fantastic job of making me understand exactly what the procedure would do (both the upsides of the procedure and the limitations of the procedure). This helped me go into surgery with a much clearer and realistic idea of what the end result would look like. I have to say, WOW is he talented. I am ecstatic with my results, he was an artist. His staff is warm and kind and working with Sara is an absolute pleasure. I would recommend Dr. Birndorf to everyone!

      I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Birndorf. He and his staff were able to answer all my questions, prepare me for my surgery, and explain how my insurance would work. I'm so thankful to have chosen Dr. Birndorf for my surgery. I couldn't have asked for better results! I consulted with doctors in Brookfield and Milwaukee prior to consulting with Dr. Birndorf in Kenosha. Once I met with him and his staff, I knew this was the right place for me. Staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful throughout the process of my surgery and recovery.

      Dr Birndorf and his staff are wonderful! After years of debating, I finally went in for chin lipo to help my double chin. Dr Birndorf explained my options and was very upfront about expectations. He reassured me that I could change my mind, even up until the very last minute. Sara, the patient coordinator, also put me at ease and helped assure that the process and financing went smoothly. Couldn't be happier with the results! Better than I could have imagined! Dr Birndorf is definitely an expert in his field. If you've been on the fence about getting something done, I definitely recommend going and having a consultation. You won't be disappointed.

      My husband’s hand injury was very scary for us... Sara went above and beyond to assure me it would be ok! She was able to squeeze us in to see Dr. Birndorf. HE WAS SO KIND!!! Putting my worries at ease, giving us expert advice, talking to my husband face to face with no technology in the way... just a few reasons why Dr. Birndorf is a great doctor and human being.

      I cannot say enough good about Dr. Birndorf and his staff. I'd contemplated abdominal surgery for some time and consulted a couple of surgeons, but as soon as I had my consultation with Dr. Birndorf, I knew I found the surgeon for me. He is extremely patient and answers all questions and he also makes sure that he sets realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. It took me some time - and several consultations with Dr. Birndorf - to finally decide to go ahead with the surgery. Like most people I wish I would have done it sooner. :-) His staff is also excellent - very kind and caring. I cannot thank them all enough!!

      I have a journey with Dr. Birndorf where he has removed numerous cancerous lesions from my face; reconstructed my nose and my ear. If you could see me, you would not notice anything was done. This journey will never end and I am so thankful he is my surgeon and my hero. I would highly recommend Dr. Birndorf to anyone ! He also has a very competent and caring staff.

      Easy to schedule, puts clients first, perfectionist and does not rush through the process. He made sure to totally inform me and let me see the full picture. Staff are kind, caring, and I felt totally at ease. After consulting him I cancelled all other consultations with other surgeons because I knew they could not top him. I could not be more happy with my results. I would recommend him to everyone.

      I was referred to Dr. Birndorf after sustaining a fracture of my little finger. He answered all my questions, I never felt rushed. His staff are always friendly and courteous. I have never waited more than 10 minutes after being called into the exam room for my appointment. I highly recommend him and would have no problem recommending him to family/friends.

      I wish there were a 10-star rating, because that is what he deserves! I had breast reduction surgery and am thrilled with the results. He did an absolutely amazing job. My only regret is that I did not have it done years ago. Dr. Birndorf and his staff are very professional, caring, friendly, helpful and considerate. I can't say enough good about them and would recommend him very highly to everyone who is considering this surgery. It will change your life!

      During the last eight years, I have had Dr. Birndorf perform a few(3) surgeries to remove cancerous growths. Each time he has demonstrated a wonderful Friendliness, Kindness, Concern, and Professionalism which I have not witnessed in many Physicians. He and his Staff have truly been a Blessing to me and my family.
