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.
