Veronica working the front desk was amazing from the moment I called, she went above and beyond to help me and my kids from getting scheduled to help with referrals. Dr Ron Kirkwood is the coolest doctor I have met. He has the best bedside manner, he definitely engaged with my kids and me making us feel very special and welcome to the area since we are new. His students went way above the call of duty and were very friendly. I really enjoyed this visit and will continue to keep them as a primary for my kids. This office staff from the front desk to the Doctor himself and everyone in between were amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Great doc. In a day when it's rare to find a doc who really listens to you, has a smile for you and great bedside manner, Dr. Ron does! He loves to travel and has beautiful pics that he takes of his travels all through his ofc. I look forward to seeing these when I visit him. I also appreciate that he is a teaching doc and has had many students he has mentored coming through his ofc.

Dr. Ron Kirkwood is a doctor who spends time with his patients. When you see Dr. Ron you feel like you are talking to a trusted long time friend. He's knowledge base is huge....he's seen about everything that go wrong with a human body and knows how to treat things or who to refer to. The doctors he has referred me to have been people he knows and trusts. Its been ten years since someone recommended Dr. Ron to me, and I have been with him ever since. Cant say enough good things about this doctor.
