Dr Kirk is very patient and knowledgeable. She listens the patient, try to come up with solutions and best way to treat you. I have IBS and definitely recommend her to treat this syndrome.

Dr. Kirk was warm and welcoming, asked lots of questions about my health background, and provided informative answers to my questions. She took the time to establish an easy rapport with a new patient and it was greatly appreciated. I was seen within 5 minutes of checking in. The entire office, from Dr Kirk to the front desk staff, was friendly and helpful. Great visit!

Dr. Kirk is an intelligent and caring doctor. She treats you as a “patient with a Gastric problem” and not as sick one. Expert care and optimism is her signature. I simply love and respect her

Outstanding and caring physician. Dr. Kirk does a great job getting down to the details of complicated gastro issues. She's personable and does a great job listening and asking questions. Highly recommend.

Probably good primary doctor but poor specialist. I was in and out of ER for extreme abdominal pain and constipation. She ordered only blood tests. When the tests where normal she threw up her hands and said she cant help as there is nothing wrong with me. I ended up in ER again and had an open surgery due to partial intestinal blockage. Was easily found by simple xray and CT scan. Wasnt expecting her to know right away, but she gave up quick. Also not good idea to be last patient if the day

Ms Kirk is more concerned with enjoying an early afternoon off then attending to her last procedure of the day. Never be ms kirks last procedure of the day. She will create any excuse to cancel
