I really liked Dr. Irions. He was very nice and friendly. This was my first visit with him and the first medical doctor I have seen in this area. I was driving back to Hickory to see my doctor. I liked the way that Dr. Irions handle himself, spent a lot of time with me, listened to all my concerns, asked questions, and even called me after my appointment to give futher instructions on the medication he stated me on. I was able to see my test results that evening (really liked that) and I received a letter from his office with his recommendations 2 days after my appointment. As a RN, I can honsetly say he impressed me greatly, he was excellent and I am planning on moving my husband to his practice.
