He is very genuine. Knows what he is talking about and makes you feel very safe.

At the initial visit he makes you feel secure in your decision but once you pay him to be your surgeon that's where his caring nature stops. After major surgery I was having lots of pain and Dr. Dirk stated there was no way I could be in so much pain. Pain is subjective and it's wrong he would say that. That just goes to show how much the Dr. really cares....
