Dr. Irion is a wonderful doctor. He takes his time with you, answers questions you have and most importantly HE DID NOT HURT ME when giving me my knee shots. I used to see Dr David Wadell but he retired. His shots hurt me bad!! I’m so thankful for Dr Irion. He is an awesome caring doctor.

Had been struggling with undiagnosed shoulder pain for ~8yrs, had seen many many Dr's prior with no results. One trip to Dr Irion & he suggested we look at my neck since 2 shoulders often indicate a neck problem...sure enough I have had spinal MS this whole time. Thank you Dr Irion for knowing enough to look beyond the source of my pain!! I am now finally able to receive treatment for the underlying condition.

Dr. Irion is a great doctor. He and his staff have worked very hard to get to the root cause of my problem. I've seen him quite a few times and I never feel like I'm getting run around like I do at other doctors offices. Not many doctors take that much time to make sure their patients are really taken care of. He actually cares.
