    How was your appointment with Dr. Kirkwood?

    Mar 02, 2021
    I feel like I hit the jackpot by having her be my Dr.! Dr. Kirkwood is very patient and understanding. She had an excellent bedside manner and has so much expertise...especially when it comes to pancreatic cysts....which can be terrifying to have. I feel like she has my best interest in mind and that no matter what I will be receiving the best medical care possible.
