Self-verified patient of Dr. Anthony J Kirby - Posted on November 8th, 2018
This Dr. has dismissed my daughter's ailments, while she is under the care of several specialists who are trying to sort out her condition. He refused to even discuss any alternatives to opiods, told her that she was not coping with her problem and that she needed to be admitted to a psychiatric unit for a month. He lacks compassion. For example he threatened to call the PCP who referred her, to state that she was a psychiatric case(not his area of practice) telling my daughter that she was not trying enough, even though she struggles with physical therapy. He became harsher than he already was with her when he learned that she was on Medicaid.
Uncaring and injection happy
