I chose Dr. Kirkman when I needed a cardiologist because I had worked with him in the cardiac care unit for eight years. I personally know he is a doctor with integrity, knowledge, caring (his patients ALWAYS come first) and excellence in every medical decision he makes. He needs to be cloned!

Grateful for his help

I have always had good visits at your office & with *Dr. Kirkman.

11/20/2014

I was referred to this Doctor through the VA system - and found Dr. Kirkman to be very informative to my condition and what needed to be done -- Unfortunately since my care is through the VA - the procedure that Dr. Kirkman suggested I receive will be handle by the VA in Ashville -- I would have trusted Dr Kirkman along with the staff at Baptist Hospital to carry out his recommendations

Great doctor who really seemed to want to listen to me and seemed concerned about my health. He (note, I said "he" not someone else) even called within a couple of hours about results from my stress test. I would highly recommend him and hope that he does not leave the Med Ctr!!!
