“I am dedicated to providing quality orthopedic care in a compassionate and positive environment.”
“One of the things that attracts me to orthopedics is the challenge of analyzing my patient’s unique symptoms, determining the diagnosis, and then finding the most appropriate treatment that meets the needs of the individual patient.”
Dr. Birchard, his wife Cecilia and their children, Nathaniel, Ezra and Jane, enjoy outdoor activities including bicycling, hiking and camping. Dr. Birchard also enjoys reading and volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America with Troop 373 in Chehalis where he serves as an Assistant Scoutmaster. He also enjoys tinkering in his workshop where he is currently rebuilding a 1952 Dodge Pilothouse pickup truck.
Dr. Birchard has always had a special interest in supporting and providing orthopedic care in developing countries. He has participated in medical mission projects in the Dominican Republic, Papua New Guinea, and India.
