His staffs and his professor care make you feel trust and comfort. My finger look much normal like nothing happens . No one can't tell how bad injuries before . Thank you doctor !

Dr. Peter Birnbaum, DO Specialist, gave me a shot to relieve extreme pain in my left hand. The location was about an inch and a half below my main thumb joint, and directly into my outer wrist. In 24 hours or less, the pain that I suffered with for more than 7 months... was completely gone. And... that shot was given to me four months ago, this past August. It was fantastic and made that horrific pain disappear. Yessss!!!

My mother had Ligament Reconstruction and Tendon Interposition Surgery with Dr. Birnbaum. He is an amazing doctor/surgeon. He explained the procedure thoroughly to my mom and I, in terms that we completely understood. The surgery was a success and my mother is recovering very nicely. She is able to move her thumb more than she has in years. His office staff are always friendly and knowledgable. They return calls promptly as well. We appreciate the wonderful care my mom received.

My experience with Dr. Birnbaum was very professional. He was very clear with explaining my injury making it easy to understand going into the surgical procedure. Operation went very well. Going into the Physical Therapy stage Dr Birnbaum was also helpful to explain the process. I'm very pleased with our outcome.

Great Experience, Thank you

I took my mom to see Dr Birnbaum because of knee pain. He was very professional and put her at ease. He performed an exam and made his diagnosis and included me in his conversation. She was very happy and her surgery went well. She is doing well since her surgery.
in Coeur D'alene, ID |
Dr. Birnbaum is very personable, and interacted with me with great detail and options for treatment. The diagnosis and resulting repair to my Ulnar nerve blockage was a great success. The stiches, and resulting scar are barely noticeable, when compared to others with the same procedure. Ulnar transposition or something to that naming. Dr. BirnBaum has a great attention to detail, and very good narrative, regarding what is he observing, as it pertains to the visits purpose.
in Tustin, CA |
Dr. Birnbaum is very well trained, and it shows. He is knowledgeable, direct in his care, and, most importantly, he makes the right treatment decisions. He has operated on my hand and fixed it. He has taken care of sports related hand injuries in both my son and daughter, and they have healed or are healing well. In this field, you need someone who cares if they are doing the right thing, can do the right thing, and then end up with a good outcome. That is my experience with Dr. Birnbaum
Front office friendly and helpful with scheduling appointment. I got very good results with dr Birnbaum care and I am happy to express my feelings
Dr. Birnbaum and his staff really treated my better than I could have asked for. Easy of scheduling, care and all and all great results made this a pleasant experience for me.
Dr. offers alternatives other than surgery. Very pleased with my treatment protocols.
