Very good.


1. Doctor.




Had a good experience with this doctor I felt as though he was concerned with my health problem.


I had already seen three other doctors, no help. He he saved my life!


Outstanding doctor, the best I have every been to.


Dr. Kirkman is fantastic!


Very good, I felt that this was a productive visit.


First doctor that I had at WFBH that phoned me with test results. He recommended an excellent specialist to provide care he couldn't. He also provided his phone # so I wouldn't have to go through MyWakeHealth for the answer to a simple question or concern.


*Dr. Kirkman was wonderful!


*Dr. Kirkman is a great physician. He listens and is responsive. He treats my dad & I with respect. His care has enabled my father to have a better quality of life.


*Dr. Kirkman is the "best of the best" clinical cardiologists. His retirement from clinical care is a great (_____ irreplaceable) loss to our medical center.


We felt confident in Dr. Kirkmans office and were helped by his findings.


Everyone helps you with the kindest way


*Dr. Kirkman is a fine gentleman and a great, well-respected cardiologist.


Dr Kirkman is an excellent doctor. he looks at your overall health and makes decisions based on everything not just the subject at hand


A real asset to WFBH and his profession!


no new prescriptions needed or discussed. am highly impressed with Dr. Kirkman and like him very much


*Dr. Kirkman is concerned, thoughtful, thorough, and excellent in every way!


Wonderful (very good) (I love and respect *Dr. Kirkman) VERY MUCH.


*Dr. Kirkman was totally unprepared for this visit I had been sent to him after *Dr. Sandoz left and *Dr. Kirkman obviously did not familiarize himself with my history which would have informed him that one of the reasons I was having this visit was to get an ultrasound to see if my condition had changed from the previous year.
