    *Dr. Kirk delivered both of my babies and I couldn't have been happier with the care I received.

    I don't normally complete surveys, but Dr. Kirk was exactly what I needed in a healthcare provider. He acted as my advocate and "coach". He gives me confidence and recommendations that I will follow. I trust and respect him.
