Having dealt with low back pain for years, I found Dr. Kirkkson to be very thorough in his exams, explanation of the diagnosis (using MRI and physical models of the spine) and offering of options. His staff is an impressive group of customer-oriented professionals - the best I've seen anywhere, including the Mayo. Most importantly, the procedure eliminated my years long lower back pain. I am so grateful for Dr. Kirkkson's expertise.

He is certainly NOT worth the 2 month wait to see him and the disorganization about purpose of the appointment. Now that he met with me and gave me his opinion on all the Docs I had seen...I have to wait almost a month more to get my injection. I am moving on and trying to find a Doc that isn't so full of himself and cares about me and my pain.

Dr. Kirksson solved the mystery source of my pain that five other doctors from multiple disciplines were not able to solve. I tell everyone I know who is having trouble with pain to go see Dr. Kirksson becuase he is kind, compassionate, empathetic, and an excellent diagnostician.

Dr. Kirksson took the time and interest to understand my medical situation, with much more dedication than just reading my chart. I felt genuinely cared about - personally and professionally. On a return visit months later, he remembered some of my personal hobbies and asked specific questions about my well being - well beyond just my medical issues. If you want the best possible orthopedic medical care from a compassionate and proficient doctor - Dr Kirksson is an excellent choice.

I highly recommend Dr Kirksson and his staff. After having Kyphoplasty and a follow up steroid injection I feel 100% better.

Highly recommended from me. He took the time to explain in as much detail as I wanted about my problem, the procedure, and answered all questions before start. During, he asked throughout about comfort/pain levels and was just very professional and kind. My wait time was longer than usual, but only because him and his staff drove to Stillwater just to see me. They were fantastic.
