This man is rude, impatient and unkind. He seems jaded and ready to retire. I had no problem with the staff. But they had problems with the equipment because of it being so outdated.

I have been seeing Dr. Kirby for almost 30 years. He has always helped me. His bedside manner can't be beat. While it takes a while to get an appointment sometimes, I believe that'she a testament to his skill and professionalism. I hopened he never retires.
