Patient reviews for Dr. Christopher Bir
All I have to say is waow...I never write reviews but if you are looking for a doctor to actually listen to you, like listen to you and NOT judge you please see Dr. Bir. He took over 5 hours to listen to me on a Friday evening and no one has ever done such. In today’s hurry up practices, Dr. Bir is the complete opposite. After years of running around and being frustrated with a clock over my head, I feel I was finally truly listened. I’m honestly speechles
Best psychiatrist I’ve ever seen. Highly recommend!
He’s awesome! Dr. Bir is always very patient and thorough.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Bir. He was exceptionally attentive and thorough. I'll be seeing him again.
Hands down, best psychiatrist I've had. Talks to patient like an equal and is not scared to be honest. Does not sugar coat and cares deeply about his patients. As a member of the healthcare industry, we are looking for physicians with this kind of compassion. He helped me reduce my medication dose, and after taking extra numerous times, he worked with my father and I to give me the best opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you are sick of doctors spending ten minutes with you and just writing a prescription, Dr. Bir is who I would recommend. I plan on staying with him for the foreseeable future.
Best mental health physician I have ever had...spends an hour with patient and has general conversations, but I can tell he is assessing me as we are talking. Extremely perceptive observations. Just be honest & up front with him, he is very understanding.
Dr. Christopher Bir is an excellent doctor and I highly recommend him! Dr. Bir has the utmost professional mannerism and the expertise and knowledge in his line of practice. Did I mention, to top it off, he is a kind, understanding, and caring personality? If you are on the search for a great doctor, visit Dr. Christopher for and immediate experience of expert medical knowledge and genuine attitude, he has to offer!!
On time, convenient and investigates all angles. Takes a scientific approach, but also good talk therapy. Has a good sense of his clients.
Amazing. Very down to earth guy, very easy to talk to. Actually wants to help you.
Comfortable and it takes a lot for me to trust, especially doctors whom I feel are mostly sales people these days. He's genuine and cares about his patients, doesn't push you to feel one way or another.
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Bir. My experience with psychiatrists has been a mixed bag. More often that not, they will see you for 15 minutes, prescribe medication, and send you on your way. This is completely opposite of Dr. Bir's style. He was interested in my life story and the nuances for who I am as a person. Not only that he was extremely knowledgeable of treatments and medications and even moreso than most doctors I have encountered. I had to cut my session off early because of a previous conflict and was disappointed to do so because he was such a great and compassionate listener. I never, not once, felt rushed by him or like he didn't care. He was genuinely engaged in learning about me as a patient and sincerely interested in finding the best treatment for me. I cannot recommend him enough.
Dr. Bir is excellent and really took his time with me. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for real help. He's extremely knowledgeable.
Very cordial and easy going.
He seems a lot more engaged than most psychiatrists I've seen. Seems to integrate some talk therapy with medication consultation, which is rare. It's a shame that I can't be a regular patient, as I won't be in this area for more than a few months. But I would be if I could.
