Dr. Michael Birnbaum

Dr. Birnbaum was born and raised in Syracuse, NY. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Brandeis University, he earned his MD from SUNY Upstate Medical University, graduating cum laude.

Dr. Birnbaum completed both his internship and residency in OB/GYN at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, followed by a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. He then served 2 years in the United States Navy as head of the Infertility Section of the Naval Hospital in Boston, where he also served as Chief of the Department on Obstetrics and Gynecology.

For over 25 years, Dr. Birnbaum has been in private practice specializing in Reproductive Endocrinology, Infertility, Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Disorders. The many research projects he participated in over the years have focused on androgen disorders in women, and he has published numerous papers in medical literature relating to the disease now more commonly known as Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

As a result of his extensive work with androgen disorders such as PCOS and recognizing that many female hormone disorders manifest in persistent skin problems such as acne or hirsuitism, Dr. Birnbaum introduced the Breyer Medspa to his medical practice in 2006. The inclusion of laser aesthetics, in-office skin care treatments and medical grade products is a natural compliment to cosmetically correct the very same conditions he medically treats on a daily basis.
