    How was your appointment with Dr. Birris?

    Jan 31, 2023
    I had an Endoscope done on July 1, 2021. Dr. Thomas Birris was extremely professional. He was patient, explained the procedure in detail, and answered all of my questions. His friendly demeanor and expertise helped diminish any concerns and anxiety I was experiencing before the procedure was completed. In addition, his staff was caring and professional as well!
