Avoid him, he's terrible. – If you are looking for a pediatrician, avoid him. He does not care about his patients. My baby brother had a high 105 temperature, and wouldn't see him telling us just to make sure he gets lots of rest. Then, he tells us that you shouldn't worry about how high the fever is. It's when he gets lethargic and non responsive is when you worry. So, basically worry when it's too late to do anything. We ended up taking him to the ER and it ended up being that the baby had a throat infection and a double ear infection.
A month ago, the baby had a cough, so we took him in. Again, "he's fine. just make sure he gets rest." today we find out the baby has pneumonia and he is VERY sick. AVOID HIM.
Terrible – My son was seen here for about a year. He was born with one kidney and we were told by Dr. Kirby as long as he was having wet diapers not to worry about it. He never went over any special things to worry about with a child with one kidney or sent us to a specialist or for an ultrasound. When I would go into the office with my son alone he would treat me like I was a nobody and had no idea what I was talking about. When my husband would go with me he would be a totally different guy. It got to the point I wouldn't go to doctors appt's alone. Finally after a year I had decided to try to find a different pediatrician, we found a new one and went for the first visit and she told us we should have seen a kidney specialist 2 times by now to make sure that the other kidney was working properly and to discuss special diets and activities he should and should not do. Dr. Kirby did none of this. I then went back to Dr. Kirby's office to get copies of my sons medical records and was told someone would call me, 3 hours later I had heard nothing and so I called back, they told me that they were probably busy and to hold, she came back on the phone and said we will see what we can do and hung up on me. I went into the office and asked to speak to the office manager, I was then told that I left their practice and that is why I was receiving the treatment I was. I said that I hadn't even signed a medical release yet so how were they working on it. She said that the nurse was unaware of that policy so they were going to call me later to have me come back in. The ladies at the counter don't know standard policy or telephone etiquette. This place is a joke!
horrible experience from the moment you walk in. – my children have seen Dr. Kirby at Fenton Family medicine, and I would not recommend him to anyone! Where do i begin...1. As soon as I arrived in the office i could smell a very musty scent One like of a nursing home. 2. He wrote a script for my child wrong twice. 3. when i told him my child has had a high temp of 103for days, he laughed ha ha 103 is not high, 104 is! 4. He cannot read a EKG report, he said my child was fine and was wrong. 5. He can be very rude when you call the office and have him call back, like i am bothering him he in no way, SHAPE ,or form has any business being a pediatrician. If your child has a cough or needs a basic physical he might be for you just hope nothing serious is going on with your child. after talking with other parents and pediatricians I am not the only one who has horrible experiences with him. I could go on and on, but instead found a compassionate, intelligent,friendly Dr. for my children. Good bye Dr. Kirby!
