Hickory, NC |
Rude, does not listen to your pain or why you went there, my husband went to him one time and he did not act as he was a caring doctor told him his injury was not severe enough so my husband was sent for MRI by his doctor and found his source to all his pain in which is severe now been going on for six months now, was sent back to Dr. Kirkland in which told him needed to see a spine specialist he has pinched nerves. We choose not to see his partners in his practice and he again was rude!!

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.
