I have seen Dr. Kirtland regularly over a six year period. He is always interested in how I am feeling and my activity level as well as up to date on my test results. His saying "I treat the patient not just the test results" has really worked for me. I feel I am a full partner in my care.
Seems like a nice guy at first but came to find out that he was extremely insensitive. I had a blood test to rule out cancer and was obviously anxious. The results were available in 2 days. Dr Kirtland however could not be reached. He made me wait 6 days to find out that my results were negative. He referred me to a specialist and has never followed up with me since. This guy doesn't give a crap about his patients.
