Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Kirschner is thorough in his intake and provides a compassionate and comfortable environment for his patients to describe symptoms. Knowledgeable and responsive with good action plan.
I was seen RIGHT AWAY when I saw Dr. Kirschner, even though I arrived 20 minutes early! Dr. Kirschner was attentive and wanted to get to the root of the problem. He listened to what I had to say and was very efficient. The staff was very helpful and nice as well and the office is very aesthetically pleasing. He gave me information about how to follow up and made me feel confident about finding a diagnosis.
Dr. Kirschner was very attentive and took his time to make sure all questions were answered. The staff is friendly. I will continue to use Dr. Kirschner.
Doctor's appointments and the fact that I haven't had medical insurance for a few years makes me nervous. I expected Dr. Kirschner to be more welcoming with his bedside manner especially after a friend referred me. There's a lot of questions I would like to ask during my visit and about my results but don't know how to. I wish Dr. Kirschner would've helped with the formation of that particular conversation.
Dr. Kirschner is always very thorough and gives excellent care. He provides good referrals to specialists & makes sure you leave with all questions answered.
Great doctor and zero wait time!
Very efficient. Got answers to all mybquestions and was refered to apppropriate specialists for additional treatment.
Great service and doctor
Excellent doctor, asked many questions and was very patient. Took his time to formulate a well thought out assessment to my issue. I would undoubtedly see him again.
He was great but his admins were not very helpful. It's like pulling teeth trying to get any questions answered.
Always a pleasure with Dr, Kirschner. Pilar is also wonderful!
Completely unprofessional, did not address any of my symptoms. Waste of time.
So fortunate to have found such a wonderful doctor with such a wonderful staff. I highly recommend him.
Great experience overall: thorough, fast, pleasant and good communication. Everyone in the office was also very nice and helpful.
Doctor Kirschner was excellent for my annual physical. Incredibly thorough and thoughtful while being prompt. I would highly reccomend him for anyone looking for a primary care physician.
Very nice and personable - gets directly to the point and I felt comfortable asking him and the RN any questions. One thing to be aware of - it's their standard procedure to do an EKG, blood test, and urine test even for routine physicals, which I was not expecting when I went in. Wasn't a huge issue though, and the visit was great otherwise.
Dr. Kirschner was very professional and kind. Laid back and very quick. I'll be back.
Dr. Kirschner took his time and was attentive. I have no complaints
I thought he was very professional and efficient with my time.
Fantastic! Very helpful and nice
Extremely kind doctor. The best doctor I had so far in NYC.
Was very attentive and very fast! I highly recommend him
Dr. Kirschner is very kind and welcoming, and thorough as well. Also, you can get lab work done on site, so no need to find a lab to get blood drawn or anything. Very convenient.
VERY EFFICIENT OFFICE. GREAT EXPERIENCE.
Everything went smooth, this place rocks
Dr. Kirschner is fantastic. He's thorough, he's a great listener, and has a great bedside manner.

It was awesome. Staff was very friendly. Doctor was patient and listened to my concerns.

Very professional. Happy to answer any and all questions.
Excellent Doctor, I'm so glad I found him.
Great appointment all around.
On time and helpful diagnosis.
Nice bright new offices, more modern setup than their previous location, no wait time and if you're just in for your annual checkup, you can get your exam, bloodwork, EKG and flu shot done and be on your way in minutes. I do wish Zocdoc would let the doctor's office know that I'm there for my annual physical. That information doesn't seem to be transmitted.
I had a great experience. Highly recommend
Dr. Kirschner is great. Fast, effective, and easy to book. Highly recommend.
Very nice, very knowledgeable
I have been a patient of horizon medical group for 23 years. This was my first. I sit with Dr. Kirschner. Asa,ways horizon medical is n 11 on a scale of one to ten. The doctors and office staff here are simply the best.
Very nice guy, and helpful.
Friendly, no wait time, modern office and equipment. Easily smoothest doctor's visit I've ever had.
Eric is just concerned about money!!!!! He has no interest in his patients. He especially did not follow my referring doctors instructions for blood tests. He did half the tests and still wanted me to pay for him to correct his own mistake!!!!! WARNING STAY AWAY if you are not looking for a bad uncaring Doctor. Your welcome!
I was nervous trying to find a general physician after moving to NY, & I think I made the right choice. Dr. Kirschner was very kind, listened carefully to what I was telling him and referred me to a specialist so that my questions could be answered more adequately. He has excellent credentials. I have seen doctors who try to do everything on their own & run so many unnecessary tests & I'm glad Dr. Kirschner is not one of those. The office staff were also courteous and the office was very clean. I am glad I found a good general physician.
Very nice guy and very helpful!
quick and friendly
I had such a nice first visit today with Dr. Kirschner. I immediately felt comfortable with him and his staff. The office is decorated very nicely, and there is a good vibe in there. I know it's tough sometimes to start with a new doctor but Dr Kirschner and his team made me feel like I had been going there for years. I highly recommend him!!!
He was great, took plenty of time answering any questions I had and made me feel very comfortable while being examined
As always, Dr. Kirschner took was very attentive and took time to ask and listen. His new office required filling out forms that I filled out months ago. I wish they had the forms on their site like they used to. Everyone in his office is very nice and friendly. I would recommend Dr. Kirschner to anyone looking for a primary care physician that actually cares.
Helpful and accommodating. Professional.
Nice guy. Competent, thorough and - most importantly - NO WAIT.
Dr Kirchner is an excellent doctor, professional, with a laid back approach that I find refreshing. He is not trying to sell his services or over medicate his patients.
As usual, Dr. Kirschner was very patient with and thorough. You never have to wait an longer than 5 minutes. He takes time to answer your question and does not make you feel rushed. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kirschner was great and very professional. He even went to bat for me when I couldn't get a follow-up appointment for scans fast enough. Really thorough and I definitely recommend him.
Appointment was easy to set up. Staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Kirschner was knowledgeable and approachable. Highly recommended.
He's great! Returns calls promptly. Listens to your concerns. Is current but has that old fashioned doctor feel. I would highly recommend him! My new PCP!
This office is very sterile and uncomfortable, but they get you in and out. I would not recommend if you want to find a doctor that gets to know you, and builds a relationship with you. I went in for an annual physical and found it to be unpleasant.
Doctor Kirschner has been my primary physician for the past for years. I have always found him to have a calming influence. He's concerned and honest. I'm comfortable with his care.
Very nice and professional
As a four year patient of Dr. Eric Kirschner I can truly say that the service has not deminished.He is always professional and he makes you feel like your care is important to him. He is the best.
Thought he was very cursory. I would seek a more-involved dr in the future.
Whether you're there for a full physical or a pressing concern, there is almost never a wait at Dr. Kirschner's office. I was a few minutes early and I was seen right away, barely got a chance to sit down in the waiting room. Little wait for the assistants to draw blood, give shots or conduct EKGs. Don't expect the doctor to spend a whole lot of time with you, but he does check you out thoroughly and make sure any concerns you have are answered or monitored going forward. Dr. Kirschner and his staff are pleasant and professional. A visit to this office is generally a low-stress experience. Highly recommended!
He's very easy to talk to about your health concerns.
He was not very thorough and I felt rushed out of the office. On top of it, his diagnosis as to why I have seizures after receiving injections is because I need to drink more water... Would not recommend.
Dr. Kirschner was great! He empathically listens to you, even when you're listing a bunch of symptoms (that might be more info than he needs). He explains procedures when you are unclear what they do. Just an FYI if you are scheduling a first time appt, check your junk email-- I was sent an email to confirm my appointment but didn't see it because it went in my junk email -- luckily they could still see me-- woman at front desk was very nice/understanding about it!
Dr. Kirschner is a great doctor and very thorough. I felt very comfortable with him from the beginning and he is a really nice guy!
The way a doctors visit should be ! two thumbs up!
Excellent physician!!! Dr. Kirschner is a true professional. The office staff was pleasant and helpful. I was greeted in the waiting room by the doctor himself. The visit felt very personal and comfortable; I absolutely hate doctor’s visits but I felt very much at ease and the visit was a breeze. I went in for a general physical and was in and out in no time. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kirschner to my family and friends.
Experienced and good doctor
Excellent experience! This was the first time I've ever visited a doctor when I was greeted in the waiting room by the doctor himself. He took my BP and spent time hearing about my concerns. He had a nurse give me an EKG, draw blood for tests and give me a flu shot at my request. He read my EKG on the spot and was generally very friendly and approachable.
Dr. Kirschner is a caring professional, whose judgement can be relied upon. He listens. He never rushes through an appointment. He shares his knowledge, explains clearly, and respects his patients.
He is a very knowledgeable and professional physician.
Friendly, thorough, and quick.
Great! Went in for a physical. I saw the doctor within 5 minutes of my appointment time, the paperwork i filled in online was already with the receptionist so all I had to do was let them photocopy my insurance card and sign 3 forms. Dr. K was kind and efficient. I would definitely recommend.
Always great; attentive, fast, supportive.
Shirt and to the point but extremely knowledgeable. And professional
A good no-nonsense style.
I was seen very quickly. His staff was helpful and professional and Dr. Kirschner was great!
Seemed calm and attentive. Not awkward. Was serious even though im a jokester. I would see him again.
No wait time. Great doctor. Highly Recommend.
It was fine. The office did not have a record of the appointment made through Zoc docs. They fit me in anyway, thank goodness, but I thought this service is a stressor, not a help. If you are going to offer the on line service, it needs to be accurate.
Good bedside manner. Very informative and concise. Sincerely asked me if I had any questions. Wow!
Dr. Kirschner was very attentive, a great listener and thorough. Very professional and friendly!
Dr Kirschner is amazing! He was very friendly, professional and thorough. I saw him almost immediately and the staff was extremely helpful and very friendly as well. I would highly recommend making an appointment with him.
