“I can't offer enough praise for Dr. Birmingham and his staff. I was suffering with extremely painful plantar fasciitis weeks before the Leadville 100 Trail Run race. Dr. Birmingham came up with a treatment plan and two weeks later I was able to complete the race with almost no pain in my feet! He cares, he listens, and I highly recommend anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis to go see him. He even looked up my race results online and sent me a text immediately after the race to congratulate me! First doctor I've ever seen that did that!”Scott in Boulder, Colo.
