Would NEVER go here! My daughter decided to be cautious and abstain from vaccines for a bit so he told her he couldn’t see her child anymore.

Stephanie L. in Fenton, MI – Jan 08, 2019
I took my 2-year-old to him twice in one week, I called twice in one week because I knew she was sick. He listened to her with a stethoscope and said she had a "little something" starting in her upper left lung. Her temp was 105.5, he told me to give her Tylenol. He did not take my concerns seriously or even do an x-ray of her chest. ER diagnosed her with a "big pneumonia". She ended up critical in the pediatric intensive care unit in Hurley for 25 days. I will never take my kids back to him.

Fenton – Dec 17, 2018
I would go out of my way to keep anyone from taking their child to Kirby. My child was there several times with serious conditions and he just sent her away stating it was viral. I immediately took my child to another Dr and as I kept saying my child had a serious condition from it not being treated because of Kirby. I ended up taking her several times to another Dr immediately after she saw Kirby. Kirby never diagnosed my child correctly and labs don't lie.

Very unbending practitioner. Will turn children away if late to an appointment by 15 mins and sometimes less (as in our case). Even when there wasn't a soul in the waiting room and not one patient walking in or out of the place. Some of the office staff are are very indifferent and almost rude in how they speak to parents. As a healthcare worker who has worked with hundreds of pediatricians and family doctors, I have never experienced this before, even when offices are swamped.

Disappointed Parent in Fenton, MI – Jan 06, 2017
When I was new to the area, I had no knowledge or referrals to any physicians nearby. Being it was for my child, that is a scary feeling. I went to Dr. Kirby hoping for the best, as I had to start somewhere. He had totally exceeded my expectations, and I am so glad I had given him a chance. We have been seeing Dr. Kirby for 10+ years now, and he has been great! The staff there have been wonderful also, and we are thankful for his dedication in caring for his patients!
