I recommend Doctor Kirk for any eye care and especially cataract treatment. He is comprehensive and takes the time to address and answer all your concerns. His staff is top notch and extremely responsive. Their prices for service and glasses are very reasonable. I have emergency concerns prior to surgery that were resolved within 24 hours.

Dr. Kirk has been my eye doctor for years. He always takes the time to answer all my questions, he explains issues to me, and has an outstanding set of staffers. I particularly liked the internal organization during a recent cataract surgery. Everyone was clear in their explanations and answers to my questions, the actual procedure was great with competent and helpful staff. Kirk Eye Center is the greatest.

Dr. Kirk takes time with his patients. He explains your particular situation and allows you to express your concerns in detail and then answers with clarity. I never feel rushed when I'm with Dr. Kirk and he always explains what he's going to do during the eye examination. I'll be getting my cataract surgery next week and I know I'm in good hands. The personnel at Kirk Eye Center are professional and treat their patients with respect. You can tell everyone enjoys working there.
