I met this doctor as a referral from my retiring gyne Dr Yung. First off she misdiagnosed me with a prolapsing fibroid before even examining me!! and put me on some experimental medication called fibristal which caused me to hemmorage and landed me in the ER. She then admitted she has no OR time available and referred me to another Gyne for follow up and removal of said Fibroid. She does not answer questions in a straightforward manner and makes the patient feel inferior and not worthy of knowing the full results of their tests. She's got some good reviews on here but anyone can deliver a baby that's not rocket science (I've had several at home) look elsewhere if you want to be taken seriously and be given HONEST advice and not treated like a Guinea pig.
I met Dr. Kirkham this week for the first time. I had been dealing with some ongoing health issues and many other doctors have been unable to provide me with information or a definite diagnosis and treatment options. She was incredibly thorough in explaining my condition and treatment options. She answered all of my questions, gave me additional pamphlets/info and was very knowledgeable and personable. She seemed like she genuinely cared about my well-being and didn't rush me or brush off my concerns. Definitely would recommend. The nurses and other staff were also very friendly.
I just saw Dr. Kirkham for the first time the other day, and I just felt so happy/grateful after the consultation that I met (and now have) a doctor like her! She was so compassionate/attentive/personable/reassuring...I felt like she genuinely cared! You can tell she loves what she does. She was also very knowledgable and was able to answer all of my questions. She was patient and I never felt rushed. The staff was also very sweet! I felt so comfortable...highly recommended!
Dr. Kirkham is wonderful. She was immediately able to diagnose and offer treatment for my endometriosis that my GP had been dismissing for 18 months. She is very friendly, knowledgeable, and unjudgemental, and made me feel truly at ease.
I was not really impressed with her and won't go back. She had someone else take my history and so was unaware that there were reasons why I couldn't just take some naproxen for my pain. I had to reexplain and she wasn't so interested. I understand that its a teaching hospital, but she still needs to know the history. If I could just take some naproxen, I would not come to a specialist, trust me. Her clinical skills might be good, I don't know. But she wasn't interested in the details and the details make all the difference.
Very Abrupt and rude - did not listen to what I had to say and did not want to discuss my history - kept trying to give me birth control which i told her does not work as i have tried it before. Just not helpful
a dream for surgery. was on time, and finished it earlier than expected. felt really good after, as she promised me pain wouldnt need more than advil. spoke with my accompanied driver re:results. highly recommend!
I agree the person responsible for answering the phone never does. When you leave a message no one calls you back therefore the doctor is very hard to get a hold of. I would not recommend for this reason
secretary a little bit of a dud, doesn't really answer the phone and when she does shes not much help. dr. kirkham has this thing for being on time. she was a little late with mine and apologized but then when she tried to do me a favour and she was late for the next pt she rushed thru the stuff. she seems sweet and kind. ive just met her for the first time but she has a short waiting time for surgery and i think im comfortable letting her do it. it did take 4 months to get an initial appointment though.
