Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kirk "Everyone is an athlete. As a sports medicine physician, I see athletes of all ages and skill levels. Making the correct diagnosis is key to a successful treatment plan. This requires adequate time to listen to and do a proper exam. I typically spend 20-30 minutes for all visits. When necessary I use X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, CT, and biomechanical running analysis. I favor non-surgical treatment plans prior to surgery. My goal is to get you back to the sports and activities you love!"

Dr. Kirk has worked on four of my kids who have all played sports in school. He has always been patient and professional and makes sure we fully understand the problems and treatment path. I strongly recommend Dr. Kirk and would not consider taking my kids to anyone else.
