Kirkman Medical Center puts patients first

Home/Blog, Samples/Kirkman Medical Center puts patients first

Since opening Kirkman Medical Center last March, Dr. Srinivasan Pillai has provided high-quality health care to both Central Florida residents and visitors. From immunizations to screenings to treating non-life threatening illnesses, Pillai and his staff offer compassionate care in their state-of-the-art facility.

Pillai serves about 40 to 50 patients per week at Kirkman Medical Center, and warmly welcomes walk-in patients and visitors who cannot see their primary physicians.

Kirkman Medical Center is equipped with a lab and X-ray technology, so that patients can conveniently receive multiple services under one roof. Currently, the center is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., but clinic hours are between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Clinic hours may be extended as demand increases.

An Experienced Physician
While Pillai originally considered becoming an engineer, he pursued medical school at his parent’s encouragement. He ranked in top ten of the 400,000 students who competed for medical college admission in his home state.

Pillai trained at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., and at Jackson Park Hospital in Chicago. He has hospital, clinic, nursing home and private practice expertise. Pillai worked in an emergency department in Minnesota, and also boasts intensive care unit (ICU) experience. While working in a rural area, Pillai had the opportunity to work closely with billers, and learned coding best practices that have helped him open his practice in Orlando.

Board certified in family medicine, Pillai is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians. Pillai has special interest in diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, asthma/COPD, preventive cardiology, urgent care and hospital medicine. In addition to serving patients at Kirkman Medical Center, Pillai works part-time at Florida Hospital and Orlando Regional Medical Center.

“Medicine can be truly rewarding,” he says. “I feel mentally satisfied, and good about improving the lives of my patients.”

Compassionate Care

Pillai understands the specific needs of his patients.

“My patients need their doctor to be accessible to them,” he says. “They want to be seen in a reasonable time. Patients who visit my practice can reach me when they need me, and don’t have to worry about overbooking. They can also come in with urgent matters.”

The staff maintains electronic patient records that allow Pillai access at all times.

“I can review patient records securely and remotely online, whether I’m at home or on call,” he says.

Pillai believes that physicians should be empathetic.

“Doctors must do more than offer professional recommendations; we must truly hear the issues in order to customize a treatment plan for each patient,” he says.

Pillai offers extended evening hours to accommodate busy families and working adults. He is planning to offer weekend clinical hours in the near future.

Success Stories
When a patient arrived with swelling, Dr. Pillai was able to diagnosis her in under two minutes.

“I spoke with the patient, reviewed her records and examined the swelling. She had kidney problems, and was consuming too many fluids,” he says. “I restricted the patient’s fluid, and the swelling went away.”

When another patient visited Kirkman Medical Center complaining of a swollen foot, Pillai took an X-ray of the man’s foot and found no broken bones. The problem was due to issues with gout.

“The man saved both time and money by coming to my practice,” Pillai says. “If he would’ve have gone to the emergency room at a hospital, he would have had to wait for hours to be seen. If he would have gone to another practice that did not have X-ray equipment, he would have needed to make an additional trip to have this done.”

When a solider visiting from Iraq during the holidays came to Pillai with a twisted ankle, the doctor agreed to see him even though he arrived right before closing time. Pillai was able to confirm that the man hadn’t broken any bones. The man was treated for a minor sprain, and was sent on his way.

Kirkman Medical Center is currently welcoming new patients, and can answer questions from patients enrolling in Medicare. Visit the medical center at 882 S. Kirkman Road, Suite 108 A, Orlando, FL 32811, or call (407) 298-4045. Find information online
