Sam Kirkendall Is a really great Dr. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone to have him as their MD. He’s very patient, very knowledgeable, I like how he gets straight to the point. He’s quick and very respectful. The day I met him for the first time I already had this sense of trust in him. Again. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr.Kirkendall to anyone. 5 stars is underrated.



Best Dr. I have ever used. This dude is the real deal. He got me in and got my dead appendix out in record time! He maintains professionalism and is highly geared towards your comfort and needs. 10 out of 10.
