Neurosurgery ICU, nurses and staff

After a hectic week in the Neurosurgery ICU, nurses and staff surprised Dr. Seifi with a tray of colorful cupcakes bearing the words "We Love You."

We are lucky to have such an amazing Neurocritical Care team at University Hospital!


Patient Testimonials

Oct. 9, 2009

Dear Dr. Birnbaum,

Timing has not been right for us to visit on the phone.

I just want to thank you so much for your care of mom, Francelle, at St. Luke's Hospital during her last days. I appreciate all that you did for her to keep her comfortable and out of pain.

You are a very caring, kind, personable doctor, and I will always remember your special caring way with me in my very sad situation. It was so hard to sit and watch mom fail, but I am thankful she is now resting in peace. She did have a wonderful, long life.

It was a pleasure meeting you. If any of my friends or family need a neurosurgeon, I will highly recommend you. You are the best.

Thanks again for everything.



~ Gayle
