Dr. Kirksson and team were great! Dr. Kirksson was able to sort out the issues of my pain and come up with a care plan that put me at ease. I have complete confidence in the medical care. His assistant was great to talk with and had very good patient rapport. I will continue to see him in the future for my pain issues.

Dr. Kirksson was very professional, knowledgeable in my interactions with him during my visit. I am told by many individuals that he is the best at giving cortisone injections and I would agree from my experience. I went into my appointment somewhat fearful, as I don’t like shots or pain, and my experience was very positive. I was amazed by it all. Thank you!

Dr. Kirksson has done a couple of injections and more recently an EMG in January, 2020. His injections were painless. The EMG, which is mildly uncomfortable no matter what a physician does went great. Excellent technique. He really puts you at ease and has a calm confident approach to things. Very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. I really felt that he actually cared about me personally and I wasn’t just another “procedure”. I myself, having been in the medical profession for many, many years, appreciate the quality of care I received by Dr. Kirksson. Thank you!

Dr. Kirksson was truly wonderful for me. He listens carefully and you really come to understand that he cares about you and wants to help you with your medical problem. Listening carefully and taking the time with a patient is rare today, but he does it naturally. His calm demeanor and thorough explanations immediately lowered my anxiety and stress levels. I initially saw him for problems with terrible pain with my neck that other doctors – surgeons – had said required surgery. He successfully treated my neck without surgery and it hasn’t bothered me since. Years later when I had persistent lower back pain, he was obviously my first choice. I recommend him to my friends and family, as needed, without hesitation.

Dr. Kirksson was just such a blessing to meet! He listens and hears your full story and then helps you come up with a plan to heal and/or become more comfortable. He’s thorough with his testing and has creative ideas for healing and helping you become pain free. In today’s world it is hard to find a doctor who is not so pressed for time that they are watching the clock while you are talking. He truly listens–is knowledgeable and compassionate!

Dr. Kirksson treated my condition with professionalism, skill, and honesty.  Helping me feel better was obviously his goal and he treated me in a way that made me feel like my health was important to him.  He and Carrie, his clinical assistant, are very nice people and are an asset to TCO.

Jeff H.

Just a quick note to thank Dr. Kirksson for his outstanding work diagnosing my shoulder injury.  After rounds of MRI’s and other testing my diagnosis was alluding other Doctors. Dr. Kirksson was able to diagnose the issue ten minutes into my visit.  I am grateful that his superior diagnostic skills put me on the path to successful treatment and recovery.
