Ratings for Dr. Keith A. Kirby
After seeing some Doctors at Optim orthopedic, I was sent to Dr. Kirby as a last resort. After not knowing what was wrong with me for a year, My first visit Dr. Kirby diagnosed me with CRPS. And since then I have been going there, almost 12 years now. I love the staff, they all know me and I Love his PA's. The Male PA saved my life, Ski, he found an abnormal EKG, from me, and immediately informed me to see my Cardiologists. I Love Dr. Kirby, Ms. Libby, and Ski.....
Dr. Kirby is not a warm and fuzzy doctor. How many doctors have you gone to are warm and fuzzy? Probably none. I don't expect that from any doctor He has two PAs and one is really great and the other is very matter of fact You see them on a rotating basis and I dread it when I have to see one of them. She makes comments under her breath about what the other PA had done/prescribed, shakes her head and then prescribes the same thing the other PA did. When the good PA had to go away for six months, they brought in another PA and she was fantastic. I really hoped they would keep her on after the other PA came back but they didn't. I haven't experienced what other reviewer have said about being pushed into doing procedures. The staff is like any other group of people - some are friendly and so are no.
I was injured on the job, and I was referred here after failed back surgery (no pain relief). The only relief I've received is due to the small dosages of hydrocodone finally prescribed to me after being undermedicated for 2.5 yrs before seeing them. However, I have found them to be highly judgemental except for one PA who just returned here. The doctor was too busy being on his laptop researching Trump while seeing me in the beginning to get my care right. He had all my meds in detail before him, yet he almost prescribed me Lyrica which was highly contraindicated for people taking ACE inhibitors for high blood pressure, which I do! I looked it up on my phone as I sat there, and brought to his attention! He made at least 2 or 3 other major mistakes later that would take too long to describe here. I only continued to see them because I was locked in with the insurance coverage I had at that time. As soon as my insurance choices changed I ran for dear life! He was constantly trying to push invasive procedures in me that didn't work for others I had talked to that had them and doing research. I already had one failed back surgery so I wasn't going to just allow extra procedures with no hope of relief. They seemed to take my not agreeing to more invasive procedures personally! I say choose a real doctor.
Dr Kirby looks like he is a drunk or pill head he and some of his employees are not friendly you can hear them in the hallways discussing things about the patients he is rude at times when I first went there his office had a lot of employees but now most of them are gone he is not a good Doctor at all you go there and find out for yourself
Worst Dr ever!!! Was doing a spinal on my daughter and kept dropping the instruments an started screaming the f word while listening to loud heavy metal music!!!! If I find out that I am sick and only have 3 months to live I would consider taking him out for what he has done to my daughter!!!!!!!
