I had a very good visit with this provider and left feeling better that I was when I arrived.

July 20, 2020 3:51 PM

All was great!

Everything was great with Dr. Kirk and the staff. My son is on the road to better arm health. I am so grateful we have access to great healthcare.

June 29, 2020 9:39 PM

Dr. Kirk is a compassionate and thoughtful physician. I had an appointment booked with Castle orthopedics that they canceled on me a few hours before the appointment. I called Dreyer looking to get in right away and they did not just that they scheduled me with Dr. Kirk who is amazing. I am so thankful that they did because I was able to see a Doctor Who is truly passionate about what he does.

June 29, 2020 7:13 PM

May 15, 2020 11:36 AM

The front desk folks are swamped @ times but should never take the smile out of the moment, because most folks don't feel well & need a smile & not someone rude.

April 4, 2020 9:12 AM

excellent experience. everyone was very kind, did not have to wait long. the provider was very friendly, thorough. I felt like he and the staff listened to my symtpoms, explained all treatment options, and discussed procedure before and during.

March 23, 2020 3:00 PM

Dr. Kirk was very kind and answered all of my questions.

January 20, 2020 10:26 PM

I was very impressed with Dr. Kirk's care, concern, and expertise. I have had knee pain for 2 years, and he was able to relieve it, and explain it to me much more thoroughly than the previous specialist that I saw.

January 20, 2020 10:26 PM

I am to follow up with Dr. Kirk in 6 weeks, and I feel confident being his patient!

January 19, 2020 5:59 AM

very good

January 18, 2020 8:39 AM

Dr. Kirk rechecked my thumb that I had broken last year and then reinjured. He was great, just confirming that it was a sprain.

November 27, 2019 5:59 AM

I like the way he interacted with my son, he explained and communicated with him since he was the patient. He let him make the decision on what he want to do about his knee and didn't force him to do it.

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent care

October 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent experience...

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirk is very knowledgeable and really tries to strike a balance between what is optimal and what is practical while achieving a positive outcome after my injury.

September 17, 2019 7:00 PM

I liked that Dr. Kirk used the ultrasound machine to guide him to give me my knee injection. Other providers have never done that and I questioned whether they even injected the right place.

September 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirk was very professional, listened well, and described the situation and diagnosis clearly - Very happy with the appointment.

July 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirk was extremely professional, a wonderful listener, offered sound advice to move forward from an injury that was sport-related.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirk is a very good doctor I'd recommend him to anybody that needs the shot in the knee. No pain. He's straight forward in saying what needs to be done.

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor Kirk was good

June 9, 2019 7:00 PM

My visit with Dr. Kirk was excellent. I went to the wrong location because I wasn't aware that an Ortho office was at Sequoia. The receptionist at Highland was kind enough to call Dr. Kirk's office to explain what had happened and let them know I was on the way. In spite of being late, they were still able to see me. X who checked me in, as well as Dr. Kirk were excellent in reassuring me that the mixup was ok. They were very nice and spent a good amount of time with me so it was a full, not a rushed visit. They were professional and courteous, which I really appreciated. They also explained that Ortho at Sequoia was new so the mixup was understandable. I really appreciate how they made what could have been a negative into a very positive experience.

May 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Clearly answered questions and explained what I needed to do during the next few weeks! Also had me schedule a follow up visit!

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

My experiences with Dr. Kirk and his staff have always been very positive and upbeat experiences.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

He come to my apptment., and he did a good job.

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Very professional, also seems genuine, a nice guy

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Kirk gave me an injection in a knee 6 weeks ago, and the results have been very good. He has discussed further treatment if the pain returns, and I feel confident about his ability to treat my problem. I like his personal qualities too.

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Kirk was excellent. He gave me a cortisone shot that I barely felt, and had no discomfort with in the following days - a stark difference from my experience with Dr. X. He also had a great sense of humor combined with a no-nonsense approach to treating my osteoarthritis. I appreciated his concern for my symptoms, and the fact that he ordered PT and a follow up visit in six weeks to keep track of how everything was going. Again, a VERY stark difference from how I was treated by Dr. X.

November 24, 2018 6:00 PM

my appt was not on time only because I had an X-ray before the drs visit. I was very pleased with my appointment
