I'm amazed at Dr Kirwan's own appraisal that he is "the most appreciated" .
My experience & that of others who have contacted me along with reviews on the Start Local review site, is the opposite.
He is all very charming until something goes wrong then he claims its your fault or all in your head.
Dr Kirwan stood over me, inches from my face, abusing me & then ordered me to "get up on the bed".
I left the room very emotionally upset having never been spoken to like that by a doctor or any professional.
I didn't go back but instead went to Melb where it was removed & replaced.
Dr Terence Hillier gave me back my life. After 25 years of chronic back pain, Terence operated on my spine where two discs were completely missing. He inserted two titanium discs 2 yrs ago, and even though I am 65yo. I now feel as though I could do just about anything. He might not be the most jovial doctor on the block but he is a miracle worker as far as I'm concerned and I owe him an enormous debt of gratitude for his expertise and professionalism.
