Dr. Bir's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bir "I completed my undergraduate degree and my graduate degree in public health on the east coast, then moved back home to California for medical school at UC Davis. I trained in general surgery at UC San Francisco East Bay program, where I was exposed to a diverse array of surgical techniques and styles. When I finished training I came to Woodland to be part of a tight-knit community and to live in a family-friendly location. I am proud to work at Woodland Clinic Medical Group and at Woodland Memorial Hospital. We take care of our patients as if they were our own family, and we are able to have some of the best outcomes for both surgical and medical care in California. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bir "Great care requires a team approach.  I believe we should have all the information we need to make informed decisions, and to know in advance what to expect from surgery and recovery.  The focus of my work is general surgery (hernia, gall bladder, emergency surgery, etc.) but I have a special interest in treating diseases of the thyroid/parathyroid, breast, and colon.  I also devote a significant portion of my practice to treating cancer, including breast and colon cancer.  For all my surgeries I use minimally invasive surgical techniques and multimodal pain control methods whenever possible to reduce recovery time and post-operative pain.  I want people to be able to get back to their lives and families as soon as possible!"

Patient Comments (1)

She immediately put me at ease and listened to my concerns. We had a long discussion about surgery and I never felt rushed or pressured. She made sure my primary care doctor was informed every step of the way. On the day of my surgery, it could not have gone better! Everyone at the hospital...more
