Specialties

Dr. Steve T Kirk has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

I'm a student at UNC, and this doctor is the only doctor who actually listened to me. You can tell he is mentally quick and knows a lot of medicine. I'm going to get him to see my mom when she comes in to visit.

Cares

Wow. This one really cares about us patients. The phone system is a little bureaucratic and their online chart system needs work but he really cares. It's obvious in the way he talked to us and his mannerisms.

The only doctor

I saw Doctor Kirk for an odd facial pain. He has been treating it successfully and I see him only once a year. Last year he typed up my medication list for me. When my husband passed away last year, Doctor Kirk was the only doctor of mine to write me a hand written, very sincere letter. I am older and see many doctors, and the one that sees me for the least of my problems sent me the only card. He is a kind white man.
