SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Excellent care.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Very kind. Failed to discuss treatment options other than surgical. Later discovered other options through research. This greatly disappointed me.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Dr. Kirilcuk is an excellent doctor. One of the best!

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

This doctor also performed a difficult colonoscopy for me as a precaution. She is very thorough.
