Pretty good, very attentive, but would wish he could be more conscious of being communicative during the appointment (likegiving warning before opening my gown, or procedure - for example “I’m going to check your heart rate now” instead of reaching directly with no warning. But overall pretty great!

Had a nice experience as a new patient. Very clean office. The staff was very attentive and explained how my insurance worked. The technician Melissa was so friendly and warm. She definitely made me feel at ease. Dr. Kirschner listened to my concerns and took his time. I didn't feel rushed at all. He advised me of what procedures needed to be done and what I should do going forward to get healthier. I felt very comfortable with him. Looking forward to my follow-up!

Despite the short wait time, Dr. Kirschner has a terrible bedside manner. When he walked into the room, he said hello and walked straight to his computer. A few seconds of awkward silence followed, and once his computer was up and running, he inquired into the reason for my visit. There was no introduction, and it didn't appear that he was interested in getting to know me as his patient. He gave a cursory check-up, suggested over the counter medication for my ailment and was out the door in less than 10 minutes. I have been looking for a quality primary care doctor for the longest time, and sadly, I have no desire to return to Dr. Kirschner's care.

Quite a bad experience here: waited for over 30 minutes in the room, staff were rude and unprofessional (swearing at each other in the hallway), doctor saw me for less than 5 minutes, I had one item I wanted to talk about that he dismissed altogether, no one called or emailed me to give me my results or even told me how to receive them, overall would not recommend at all

Very relatable doctor. I came for a yearly check-up, but was also concerned that some chest pain might be heart related. I was expecting him to dismiss this as amateur crazy talk, which by experience happens too often with doctors, but no. He went the extra step, did an electrocardiogram right away, just in case something might be wrong, and of course everything was fine. This is the kind of gesture that shows you the doctor does care and take your opinion into account, even when deep down he might think there is no reason to worry about. The signs of a 5 star doctor...

Dr. Kirschner was very kind and informative. He considered all possible causes of my symptoms and walked me through his thinking with each one, which was super appreciated!

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.

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.
