Dr. Matthew Kirby, MD

Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor

Professional statement

Dr. Matthew Kirby is board certified in otolaryngology, and treats all aspects of ear, nose, and throat problems, with particular interest in rhinology and sleep apnea. He is skilled in diagnosing and treating myriad problems of the upper airways and offers both surgical and non-surgical treatment options based on a patient’s individual needs. Patient relationships are what make practicing medicine special to Dr. Kirby. “Working at Atlanta Institute for ENT gives me time to sit down with the patient and really get to know them, not just in terms of their immediate medical problem but as a person. This makes for a close physician – patient relationship, and keeps the lines of communication open.” He said. Dr. Kirby received his bachelor’s degree from Austin College in Sherman, Texas, graduating summa cum laude. He attended Baylor College of Medicine in Houston for his medical degree, residency, and fellowship. Dr. Kirby has been certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology since 2006. Dr. Kirby is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. He has been an officer of the Metro Atlanta Educational Society for Otolaryngology for two years, and is a current member of the Georgia Society of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Kirby also is on the medical advisory board of the Men’s Health and Wellness Center. A Dallas, Texas native, Dr. Kirby has enjoyed getting to know and call home the city of Atlanta. “Atlanta for me is a vibrant city with all the amenities of a major metropolis but still some of the small town charm,” he said. When not practicing medicine, Dr. Kirby spends time travelling to exotic locations. “My brother is the president of US Airways, which affords me the opportunity to travel all over the world. I’m also an avid hiker, so one of my most recent, memorable trips was to the summit of Mt. Kilamanjaro in Tanzania.”

Dr. Kirby took great time in explaining my problems due to an accident I had in Costa Rica that put me in the hospital for almost 8 days. He gave me great news about my perforated eardrum and Lineal bone thatwas cracked. He is very specific about my total recovery. I will see him in a month and look forward to totally recovering. Thank You Dr. Kirby!

Today I was a new patient to Dr. Kirby and this practice. I was warmly welcomed by all of the staff I encountered and was very impressed by the caring and professional tone of the office. When I met Dr. Kirby,it was clear he had taken the time to familiarize himself with my medical and health background and was fully prepared for this appointment. Since it is sometimes difficult to find a good match when you must change doctors, I was happy and relieved that I had found a doctor who would not only continue the level of care I had received from my previous physician but become a trusted adviser.

He was knowledgable and thourough. He has an apporpriate sense of urgency. I was recently diagnosied with thyroid cancer and he explained everything to me that I needed to know prior to going into surgery. I was disapointed that I wasunable to schedule surgery while in the office, simply because I'm anxious to have it completed. The scheduler needs to find out the availibility of the hospital and should call me back in the next day or two. Perfectly logical reason.

Even though today was a semi-hard day, I was completely comforted by the care and attention to detail provided by Dr Kirby. It is not easy to relay or receive that someone in the entertainment industry is loosing their hearing. ButDr Kirby and the team offered me more than a few options that I can live with. Thank you!

He was "too" professional. We think he should have taken more time to get to know my husband especially since he was a new patient to Dr. Kirby. Perhaps it was because it was a late afternoon appointment and he had had a really busy day.

Office was great getting us in. Nose bleed on my 4 year old autistic child that needed to be taken care of quickly. Worked through the referral challenge with insurance and got us in to be seen. Dr. Kirby was amazingwith my son. Very patient, explained everything to him and made sure that he was safe and taken care of during the time he examined him as well as cauterized the bleed in both sides of his nose. Could not be happier with the care he was given!!
