He and I have a good relationship; he listens to my concerns, and then tells me what options I have on how to best care for my medical problem. He lets me think about the options, and then gives me his advice, and we come to an agreement on how to best proceed.

Dr. Kilpatrick is always friendly and listens to my concerns. He seems to be rushed because of staffing issues however never rushes me. He always listens slows down as needed. I think he is doing the best in the situation he's been put in and could probably use more help, providers. I know they lost some providers which causes a hardship on the others that remained.

Dr Kilpatrick was excellent.

Dr. Kilpatrick is an excellent, caring, and knowledgeable physician. Because he cares about his patients, he takes as long as necessary to help patients with their problems, which means he tends to run a bit late for appointments.
