    Dr. Ken Kirwood, treated me for fractured forearm, x rays & evaluated me & found I had no bone displacement, He put me into a long arm splint, & said you do not need surgery, he was sending me home to heal 6-8 weeks. Then disaster happened! he said lets be safe & send you to ortho doc in our group, I wish I had never done so. I was referred to A Dr. Mason Platt, who found same diagnosis & proceeded to bent my arm W/Out Warning me & caused multiple displaced bones, & Surgery 11 screws, now bad

    Mr. Kirkwood was not thorough or professional, and his demeanor was patronizing and dismissive. I went in at the direction of my employer due to persistent cough and chest congestion. I decided to get checked because three of the five people in my family had suffered pneumonia as the result of a particularly virulent, antibiotic-resistant bug. Mr. Kirkwood did not order a chest x-ray, and took on an attitude of indulgent condescension, leaving me with the feeling I had wasted my time.
