i have been dr. kirbys patient for two years now. i have never had a better doctor patient relationship than i have with dr. kirby. he is very attentive and gracious with his time. i feel comfortable speaking with him which not something i normaly feel in a doctors office

I have been a patient of Brian Kirby for about 12 months. I have found him to be personable and professional, kind and empathetic and extremely knowledgeable. Under Dr. Kirby's care and with his recommendation of a newer protocol I have received relief for the firsts time in DECADES. I highly recommend him. His PA and MA and their support staff are the best. They call back when promised and have squeezed me in during a flare.

Had gout for years and none of the medications worked or seemed to cause a problem. I had nodules deforming my hands and could hardly use them. I seemed to have a flare almost every week. Dr. Kirby spent time explaining gout and the medications and how the other doctors were using them wrong. Every time I had a flare Lisa his assistant got me in that day or the next. It took some time but I haven't had a flare in over a year.(first time in 20 years) Everyone else gave up on me , he didn't.

I would highly recommend Dr Kirby. He is the second specialist that I have seen for arthritis/bursitis and he was so more informative. He suggested several treatment plans that might be helpful and we are trying them to see what is more effective. He is simple brilliant! It was a plus that I only waiting for a couple of minutes to be seen and I was a new patient. How often does that happen?

Dr Kirby has made a tremendous difference in my quality of life. First diagnosing me with Rheumatoid arthritis which I had no idea that was what had been bothering me all these years. He also worked with the insurance company to insure that I received the correct medication. I would recommend Dr Kirby and his staff to anyone that has arthritis.

Basically he's not good for complicated medical problems.
Milton, FL |
Absolutely hate Dr. Kirby. When having a bad flare up, it's like you have to beg for relief. & still get told to wait it out. Does not seem to care for patients at all.
It took me a long time to find a good rheumatologist but I'm so glad I found Dr. Kirby. He listens to me and gives accurate and detailed responses. He allows to me to make my own choices about my care. His staff is even friendly. I love Dr. Kirby.
