Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had chalazion incision and curettage done by Dr. Kent Kirk. He was kind, explained the procedure thoroughly and performed it very gently. Staff of Kirk Eye Center was very professional and pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Kent Kirk and Kirk Eye Center.

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!
