Ratings for Dr. Tammy Birbeck-Schaaf
45 min wait past apt time. Took a week to have me blood work and ultrasound reviewed. I called every dad and they always had an excuse why the Dr. didn't look at it yet. It took over three week for her office to call in a prior authorization on a new prescription. Like before I called multiple times asking for assistance. I ended up paying out of pocket for my first prescription and finally got a response when I said I was leaving the office if I don't get immediate assistance. Would not recommd
She performed an unnecessary hysterectomy , I went in for fibroids & told her I wanted to keep my ovaries. (They are so many more least invasion approaches to having fibroids )(wish I would've known that then) Then when I went back to her because my hormones was out of whack she acted like I didn't know what I was talking about. I'm heartbroken to have put my trust in her.
Dr Birbeck delivered my daughter via emergency C-section after allowing me to push for four hours. She didn't notice a problem on the monitor until it was too late. My daughter had to be life-flighted to a hospital and placed in a cooling unit. We won't know if there is brain damage until she's older. I trusted her judgement and she almost killed my baby. She's not competent or trustworthy to be trusted with precious babies.
plays the "i'm the doctor you dont know" card. sugested the pain was in my head an i see a therapist. i sugested endometriosis on several visit but she would say no its not. sent me to urologist that did a full work up inclueding ultra sounds voiding cystograms visual scoping of my insides. urologist found no problems an sugested i had moderate endometriosis. last visit to doctor birbecks office after a 2 week wait to get in had a wait of over 2 hours to be told Birbeck was to busy to see me an her male just out of med school associate would see me. I have changed doctors.
I will have to agree with the last statement, after waiting for almost 2 hours for Dr. Birbeck I was taken back by a nurse, I waited in a HOT room for another 35 mins , than once Dr.Birbeck came into my room, she took three personal phone calls, she looked at my chart for 10 seconds, I was a new patient, she never looked at the notes the nurse took I went in for a annual but wanted to talk to her about having a tubal and nova sure in the middle of my exam she took another phone call I was in disbelief she took this call she could have wait for my apt to be finished she had to stop right in the middle of what she was doing I can't believe how disrespectful this doctor is, she talks to her staff out side my room of how fat I was and to top this she had two hickies on her neck, how immature is this doctor I left her office and drove to another doctor office across town and made apt with her I have never in my life been treated like this, I would never advise any one to see this doctor.
The office would call me 2 hours before my appt and tell me I would have come in right away, or they would cancel my appt. Of the 10 times I went there, it happened 7 times. Dr Birbeck did not look at my file correctly and had me on dangerous medication while I was pregnant. We transferred to a new doctor right away when we found out. She is very rude, and self-indulgent. I would advise no-one to seek out her services.
