Ratings for Dr. Yolanda Kirkham
I just saw Dr. Kirkham today. I rarely write reviews but I was motivated to do it today because Dr. Kirkam was great. She was patient, kind, down to earth, reassuring and just lovely. What a breath of fresh air it was to meet with her. She was on time, and we had a chat before my exam so she could explain things and ask for clarification about some of the details. I didn’t feel rushed and she was fully present. Afterwards, she sat with me to explain what her findings were and what some of the options were. She was very clear and patient when I had a number of questions. I have to say I’m a pretty tough critic when it comes to doctors and I’ve had some negative experiences along the way. I’m very impressed with her. Dr. Kirkham was great.
I truly believed that if I have gone to a different Doctor but Dr. KIRKHAM, as I have done previously. That cancer will again be overlooked. Dr. Kirkham save my life with her determination to find what was wrong with me. I would like to thank her and her staff for all their dedication and kindness. Thank you Dr Kirkham. You are five stars.
I waited for about 2 months to see Dr. Kirkham from my family doctor. She was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable. When she saw the biopsy results, she arranged staff to call me for an earlier 2nd appointment and referred me to a surgeon the same day. This saved me nearly 3 weeks of waiting from my original 2nd appointment time. During the expected long waiting time for surgery, she prescribed an oral medication for me to take and kindly explained to me why. All my experience with Dr. Kirkham and the surgeon she referred is excellent. I return to normal health now and want to take this opportunity to thank her for her service. The only issue I had is the waiting time is too long, but this is out of her control.
All this doctor did was to try to push me to insert an IUD she didn't ebeb discuss my ultrasound results and describe me to my doctor as morbid Obese which is untrue. She's horrible go see soneone else this hospital or doctor does not care about women's health, it's all a lie.
My appointment was yesterday. Dr. Yolanda Kirkham was a delight and what a relief. She was knowledgeable, patient, caring, thorough and action oriented. I had my consult, had a biopsy (she was gentle, caring and thankfully fast) and then I was given a referral to a surgeon all in super quick (but not rushed) time. 5/5 experience, I couldnt ask for better. Next step, Dr. Paul Davies. Thank you to the whole team, collectively you all made it wonderful during a stressful time.
Within the first two minutes of meeting Dr Kirkham I felt extremely comfortable and like I was in good hands. She was able to diagnose an issue I had been dealing with for over half a year and have been to another OBGYN about (who wasn't able to tell me the issue). She was wonderful and friendly and was very supportive. I'm honestly looking forward to my follow up because she was so nice and understanding.
Based on how happy the pregnant ladies seemed to be in her office, she might be an awesome doctor for women who don't have any reproductive issues. However, I had a similar experience to at least one other person. I waited 6 months for my first appointment, only to feel like I'd been rushed out the door with not much else except for a prescription that I did not want. No physical exams, no double checking blood work just some questions and lots of medical jargon. Looked up the medicine she prescribed and turns out its side effects would make my symptoms worse and not be good for me based on family medical history, which incredibly irresponsible, frustrating and infuriating. The only upside is that she gave me some literature that was more helpful than the visit itself. The downside is that I'm back to square one in looking for an OBGYN that will test to rule things out and explain all options to me in non medical terms.
Dr Kirkham did an amazing job on my c-section at St Josephs. She addressed our questions about natural vs c-section births and helped us make our birth plan accordingly. Definitely excels in the OR and will be seeing her for our next baby as well.
