What People Say About Dr. Matt Kirkland, MD
Reply
Almost 8 years ago Dr. Kirkland did an extensive surgery on me as he removed a tumor that was on top of a bleeding ulcer very close to, if not on, my pancreas. He had to remove half of my stomach and much of my intestines. For this type of major surgery I've have very little after-effects, most of which have been cured with light prescription anti-GERD meds. This is remarkable for all the replumbing he had to do.
