Ratings for Dr. Colin Birch
I also had a colonoscopy and had a bad fever two days later and major pain. I had to go to the ER for pain medication. I wrote him a letter to tell him how I felt about the experience and he said he would no longer see me and to find another doctor.
I cannot speak high enough of Dr.Colin Birch. His experience and expertise made me feel so safe and well taken care of during my prenatal care and my c section. He is exceptional. I knew I was in the best hands in the city. I wish there were more doctors like him. He is truly the best.
This man handled my care with the utmost professionalism and confidence. His knowledge and skill was extremely comforting as I had a csection. I had several compliments on his incisional work. As a highly educated and experienced health professional myself, I was very pleasantly surprised and relieved to be in his care. He runs a great team!
Dr Birch is an expert in his field and very knowledgeable. He will not hold your hand and coddle you. Do your research and have your questions ready. He took the time to answer all my questions and explain what was going on. He is a very skilled surgeon and I'm thankful to have had him as my doctor. Nurses at the pelvic floor have always been great. The surgical nurse line was an great resource to have during recovery.
Dr.Birch is a perfessional, excellent at his job. This is my second time with him in 10 yrs. I knew what his personality was like from the first time. He is English, straight forward, and a dry personality. Don't hold this against him, just because he doesn't chit chat. He tells you what's up and you have to put your trust in him. If its your first time with him, don't be put off by his dryness, don't take it personally, just tell him you want it fixed , like I did, and let him do his job. As for his nurses , I have not found them rude , as for his personal nurse, she was as pleasant as the first time ten yrs ago.
I waited for months to meet with this doctor and he couldn't even find the time to sit down. He just sort of leaned against the wall and gave very vague answers to my questions. Seemed rushed and irritable. I wanted so badly to like him but it doesn't seem like he really cares. It is a very depressing place with cranky receptionists in a dank basement clinic. Very disappointed and sad.
One of the best! Had bladder surgery and on my post op appointment he wasnt satisfied with how things were working. He sent me for an ultrasound just to make sure, turns out I had another serious issue. He made sure I was on the priority list for a CT and had me booked for surgery asap. Feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor. Also have never experienced any rudeness from him. He has always taken the time to explain things, asked if I had questions, and friendly & comforting. His nurses are very professional, polite, and accommodating to my work schedule
