  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Mom loves *Dr. Kirtland with now very serious health issues to face; we opted to drive 100 miles to see him instead of a very good doctor in Mt. Vernon.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
I felt that perhaps Dr. Kirtland had something else on his mind, as though my problem is minor compared to what he might be dealing with another patient. I don't mean to complain, I am very thankful its not worse, but my issue is new to me, and can be very scary. He did Rx a new med and it is helping a lot!!

Dr. Kirtland is top notch. My experience throughout the past 1 1/2 yrs that I've been in his care has been incredibly positive. He shows genuine concern for his patients and has never made me feel rushed during our appts. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a pulmonologist.
