What People Say About Dr. Kent Kirk, MD
Reply
Disinterested, inconsistent, and poor explanation of reported symptoms; poor ability to recall medical records and visits even less than 1 year old. Only feedback is to express whether HE is concerned or not concerned.

I found Dr Kent Kirk after researching reviews on the internet. What a great decision that was. I found that my vision was getting cloudy and that it was time for a checkup. I needed cataract surgery and Dr Kent Kirk performed that for me yesterday. The procedure took about 15 minutes and I felt no pain during the entire procedure.I had zero side effects: no inflammation, no infection, no swelling, no bleeding, no glaucoma or retinal problems. Dr Kent Kirk is awesome. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
