I waited 75 minutes in waiting room to be seen by Dr. Bircoll for about 5 minutes as a new patient. His beside manner left much to be desired. He had no sympathy for my sports-related injury due to my excess weight. His lecture was condescending (as if I did't know my weight is a factor-I'm working out to lose weight!), dismissed the pain I was experiencing, and didn't provide any helpful advice (i.e., he criticized my shoes but didn't give me any guidance as to what to purchase - he said at my weight, I shouldn't expect to wear cute shoes). Came off as a complete jerk - he may be biased against overweight patients or maybe this is just his personality. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone though.
