I would recommend *Dr. Birkedal to anyone who has spine problems -
Dr. Birkedal was highly recommended to me by a colleague who was successfully operated on by Dr. Birkedal.
I think it will enjoy him as my doctor
*Dr.Birkedal was a great listener and I trusted him immediately with my health!
Glad the provider did personally examine the patient after getting the report from the PA. Hands on is always better than hearing about it second hand. I felt better with the more experienced physician's direct exam.
my problem is congenital. but instead of another surgery he ordered phy. therapy. yea
I couldn't ask for a better doctor than Dr. Birkedal. Would definitely recommend him. Very easy to talk to and his concern about my health.
The resident working with Dr Birkedal was very thorough and considerate. When Dr Birkedal came in he was already updated by the resident and ready to make his own evaluation. Explained everything and set my treatment path.
Care provider was long time coming in my room, and very abrupt & quick about leaving the room.
My wife is having low-back problems, and she is interested in a future appointment with Dr. Birkedal for herself.
excellent in my book
Cannot imagine a better provider
Wonderful experience....I have recommended Dr Birkedal to many patients. I would not let anyone else do back surgery on me!!!
Dr John is an excellent Dr, very respectful and great clinical skills.
Dr. Birkedal gave me a lot of time, knew about my problem, explained to me in a way I could easily understand, guided me in what course of action I should follow, and set up a follow-up appointment. He definitely is knowledgeable about my back problem, pain, spine, sciatica. I feel confident he will get me through this. He is the best doctor I have ever encountered -- caring and well educated, understanding, perceptive. I cannot say enough good about Dr. Birkendal.
exhibiting high standards
