She’s not a doctor. She’s a businesswoman. Never seen a doctor in my life that charge you $25 to read your results over the phone. She was treating me for blood clots and she only make you do different surgery to make money. She’s the worst. She must retired

Great experience with Dr. Quirk. Was still having pain in my right leg and difficulty walking. Pain a 10 on a 1-10 scale.CT Scan showed spinal problems and most likely pinch nerves. My Primary Doctor did not respond to 3 letters dropped off at her office and she wasn't renewing my pain medication while trying to get a referral to an Orthopedic Surgeon. I emailed Dr. Quirk and while she was on vacation, got me a referral to and Orthopedic Doctor one day after an MRI and received and Epidural the next day. I had been in severe pain for 4 months and could barely walk and she made the effort on her own personal time to help me end my misery. Can't thank her enough.

She is personable, friendly, approachable, yet no nonsense in her health care for patient. The wait times are excessive (up to 90 minutes) making it very difficult on my 95 year old mother; however, because we liked Dr. Quirk so much it was tolerated. One particular front desk receptionist was not friendly and/or inviting and made a rude comment about my Dementia mother's impatience, but that too we overlooked. I highly recommend this group and Dr. Quirk!
