Extensive discussion of forth coming spine surgery.


Awesome dr.!


_____ took his time, but did not seem to fully understand my complaints or sympathize with my situation.


After working with a difficult doctor though 2 back surgeries, it has been such a comfort and relief to find *Dr. Birkedal and totally trust him to care for me as he would for his wife. He is so careful to be sure I know and understand everything that is going on. He has already done one major surgery on my back and was adamant with my family about my post operative care.


This was my first an only surgery and and hospital stay. I could not imagine a better experience anywhere else.


Very good have no complaints.


I can not express enough my gratitude to Dr John Birkadal for his excellence in caring for me. My entire life has resumed back to a normal status. I can walk and walk without pain. The opportunitys offered to me during my months of care has excelled all expectations. I am grateful for this quality of care. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to express myself.

The Doctor I had was very good and explained thing to us we need to know.


In general this provider hasn't listened to my concerns. And has a very distasteful demeanor. Did not want to hear I was in pain and told my to "eat" Tylenol for the excruciating pain in my back. Finally got an intern to listen to me about the pain.


Dr Birkadale has seen my husband and did surgery on him. He is very kind and understanding toward his patient and when my caregiver suggested I see a spine doctor I asked if I could see him. I was very impressed with his care with my husband and felt very sure he could help me in a care plan for my upper spine issue. I would definitely recommend him and his staff.


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!
