Dr. Matthew Kirby
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 patients’ 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 four years, this past one as president, 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 enjoys travelling as much as possible in his free time. He’s also an avid hiker, and one of his most memorable trips was summiting Mt. Kilamanjaro in Tanzania.”
