Dr Birnbaum is very confident and has a wealth of knowledge in his field. He can put things in layman's terms so I can thoroughly understand options/treatment. His bedside manner is great and his occasional jokes really put you at ease. Highly Recommended!

Dr. Birnbaum is amazing! He was extremely gentle and caring, and put my comfort before anything else. I had 2 severe ingrown toenails, and he was very open about the procedure, and ensured that I never felt any pain. He is the best and ideal podiatrist, period.
