Patient Comments (4)

He wasn’t rude to me... but he wasn’t empathetic. He seemed thorough but didn’t find anything significant

My son had injury that fixed by Dr. Kirkland. The surgery went very well and we are pleased with the outcome. He explained everything very well. I would trust him again for myself or my family.

Poor communicator, gave wrong information, as a result I had to go elsewhere for a surgical procedure.
