    in Boulder, CO |
    Dr. Birmingham has been treating my ankle for the past 5 months. He first prescribed a conservative, noninvasive approach (PT). Once it was clear that PT was not healing the underlying damage, he operated. The operation appears to be a definite success. He repaired several torn ligaments, a torn tendon, and some bone microfractures. After 8 weeks I am walking and riding my bike again. Throughout, he communicated with humility and confidence. All in all, I am very pleased. I highly recommend!

    Very friendly, attentive, skilled in the art, great follow ups.
    in Boulder, CO |
    Dr. Birmingham was knowledgeable and patient in explaining my options prior to ankle surgery and has been equally helpful in follow-up appointments. He answers all of my questions and lets me know what to expect at each stage. He is approachable and never feels rushed during appointments. I'm very pleased with the results of my surgery; I’ve had very little pain or swelling and am on the way to full recovery. I highly recommend him to those exploring options to repair ankle instability and pain.

    Mark is smart, careful, friendly, really good at answering questions, totally up on the latest. I have now seen him seven times for osteoarthritis treatments.
    in Boulder, CO |
    What great luck that I found this doctor! Very personable, professional and really knowledgeable. He immediately was able to diagnose my problem; fully explained various types of treatment; and quickly got me healing. I can't recommend Dr. Benjamin highly enough...at 74 I've had many physicians in my life, and he's one of the finest!
    in Boulder, CO |
    I went to Dr. Birmingham to get his opinion about chronic bursitis at the back of my heel. He was extremely personable and answered all of my detailed questions about the surgical options, risks, recovery period, physical therapy, etc. During our discussion he mentioned a paper from a medical journal which described one of the procedures. I was interested in reading it, so I wrote down the author's name. Dr. Birmingham actually printed out the paper and gave it to me as I was leaving.
    in Superior, CO |
    Dr. Birmingham was very professional and skilled yet compassionate. He listened carefully with empathy and his bedside manner was excellent. I would highly recommend him.
    in Boulder, CO |
    I went to Dr. Birmingham because I had a sliver of glass deep in my foot. His procedure to remove the glass was intricate and he brought a high-level of expertise. I am also pleased and amazed to say Dr. Birmingham has the best "bedside manner" of just about any physician I have seen in my entire life. I told him I wish he could teach his doctor-patient relationship skills to medical students, as that would greatly improve the quality of medical care. I highly recommend Dr. Birmingham.
    in Westminster, CO |
    Dr. Birmingham was terrific. He was kind, compassionate, friendly, knowledgeable. I felt that all of my questions were answered in a timely manner. My foot surgery went well, and his follow up care was great.
    Boulder, CO |
    Dr. Birmingham is professional, skilled, and thorough. At the same time, he shows personal interest in his patients as a whole and in their family members. I would highly recommend him.
    Listens, takes time. Great bedside manner.
