Great!

Dr. Birdsall has been my family physician for almost all of my adult life. I am 68. I think I first asked him to be my physician back in the late 70's. I have received excellent service, and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have such a caring person who truly listens to his patients for my physician. I am totally satisfied with his care.
