Cara is a very caring provider! You’ll love her!
Cara kirkland has been wonderful to communicate with concerning a ut problem that occured. She listens and acts quickly to correct the problem. I have been very impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. Strongly would recommend her services.
After a scary and painful experience with a diagnosed kidney stone during an ER visit I was referred to Catherine Kirkland for follow up. She was very knowledgeable in explaining a plan of action for me. She took time to answer all my questions. I never once felt rushed. Thank you Cara and staff for a positive experience.
