Unprofessional in appearance/bedside manner and questionable tactics to manage skin care. If a 60+ patient who worked in the medical field initiates a concern regarding a mole, perhaps an explanation about why freezing (used for warts) would be a better option than removing for biopsy. Additionally, not providing a gown for a fully body examination is highly unacceptable.

Dr. Quirke removed a skin cancer off the side of my nose, and grafted skin from in front of my ear. He administered an "anesthetic " around my nose and in front of my ear. I felt every painful needle stick while no anesthesia was beginning to take effect. He continued with the procedure while I felt every painful stick, cut, pull and stitch. I cried loudly the entire time. I asked him why it was so painful and he said because I was afraid. A staff member said I was not the first to complain.

I went to see Quirke to examine an area on my arm but he noticed a spot on my nose. Charged me $900 out of network to remove an area that turned out to be a solar keratosis. This was confirmed through the pathology report. When I returned he said it was confirmed as pre-cancer, "the type that could get in your bloodstream and kill you". Ultimately, he left a piece of the stitch in my nose which eventually got infected and scarred.

I saw Dr. Streahle for an area behind my left ear. I was told it needed to be surgically removed and there is an excellent plastic surgeon in the office. I show up for my appointment and a man, I finally find out is Dr. Quirk, begins the procedure. I asked him how big of an incision is this going to be and his reply was,I've done this 4500 times. Long story short, the area was smaller than a dime. It now is the size of a whelted 50 ? piece, I can't turn my head and have constant headaches. RUN

I would not recommend Dr, Quirke to anyone. I had no prior evaluation, He said he was evaluating me as he was numbimg my arm....I had a large basal cell carcinoma on my left leg. He Took skin from my LEFT ARM TO USE FOR THE GRAFT !!!!!! The stitches on my arm had broken open and I was blamed. I've had many surgeries and I know what not to do. The nurse said I had to have picked something heavy up or misused my arm. She said it and he swore to it !! How my left arm is terribly scarred ....
