      I would refer Dr. Kirgan because he is incredibly kind and talented. My hemotologist found a tumor that was roughly the size of 2 grapefruits growing out of my pancreas and wrapping around my spleen. He referred me to Dr. Kirgan. Dr. Kirgan patiently answered all of my questions and was very kind to me when I explained to him that I have severe medical anxiety. He spoke with my family, and he always made sure to check in on me in the hospital post surgery. His staff and students were awesome.

      I love Dr. Kirgan! Was diagnosed with Melanoma from my dermatologist in Dec. 2013. Saw Dr. Kirgan for surgery removal. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all questions. He let me know why I needed a sentinel lymph node biopsy I think it was called. In the hospital he was reassuring and helped me feel comfortable. I felt I was in good hands. I see him as recommended and think he is greatest doctor ever! UMC was wonderful. EVERY single person was caring and compassionate.
