The office was quiet, welcoming, and accommodating. Appointments were easily scheduled, and usually not a long wait (if any). I felt that they were thorough. After each visit (weight, blood, ultrasound) there was a complete consultation to go over results and plan. Dr. Birnbaum was always polite. He would send articles for reading so Google wouldn't be so worrisome and used "cautiously optimistic" when we got our increasing numbers. He also is not a pill or procedure pusher and when I called due to bleeding, he calmed me down.

Great location with ample parking in quiet suburb.

Very helpful, explained everything, and so polite
