Ratings for Dr. John Birchard
After 3 surgeries in 3 years (one emergency broken ankle and two knees) w we rate Dr. Birchard very highly. Excellent rapport with patient and very good bedside manner. I hope not to see him too frequently, but recommend very highly.
He has performed 2 knee replacement surgeries for me...excellent
About four years ago I ruptured my achilles tendon, I was about 31 years old and in very good physical condition. It happened Saturday afternoon and I had surgery with Dr. Birchard on Sunday afternoon, he assured me he has done as many if not more of these surgeries than anyone else around and was very confident that I should have the surgery. Since recovery I have competed in two kickboxing tournaments and won both times, today I do very well in both sports, continuing to learn and share what I know with others. I would recommend Dr. Birchard as a surgeon, he was also very helpful during my recovery.
Dr. Birchard is very clear with his information and makes sure you completely understand what is going on. Excellent bedside manner which I appreciate. Both times I have been to his office, I have had to wait over an hour for my appointment.
I had a hip replacement done by him and after he damaged the hip during the first attempt, I had to have another attempt, which also failed. I have suffered in constant pain since that time and I cannot live my life like this so I have decided to make an attempt to have this repaired. I will not be seeking his lack of expertise to repair this mess !
