I don't know that words can adequately express my appreciation for Dr. Kirsch. Around 5.5 years ago, I took my son in to GA Urology for what I thought would be a relatively routine visit. After some testing, we were surprised to discover that he had several very unusual, alarming and serious urological issues. Dr. Kirsch handled his case with determination, professionalism and compassion. Not only did he look after my son, but he was also thorough and caring when answering my questions and addressing my many concerns. It was not an easy road, but I am thankful for Dr. Kirsch's involvement every step of the way. The improvement and progress made in my son's urological health is nothing short of remarkable, and I give Dr. Kirsch and his staff all the credit in the world. He is truly a gifted doctor, and I couldn't be more thankful for all he has done for my family.

Scheduling the appointment was a nightmare...I called the pediatric line and was on hold for over 1/2 an hour. Then when someone answered it was the main Georgia Urology Switch board. They said they sent me to the pediatric line but after waiting another 15 minutes, the main switch board answered again. The same thing happened another time. It was very frustrating. But, once someone called me they were very kind and helpful. Our in person experience was exceptional! I waited 30 seconds in the lobby before being called back and only a few minutes for the doctor. The staff was incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome as a new patient. Dr. Kirsch was very kind and relaxed, took time to answer my questions and was very reassuring. I felt confident in him as a physician and surgeon.

We always find Dr. Kirsch wonderful to meet with - he is personable and kind, and he explains very well his medical position (dx, or possible dx) and course of treatment in easy-to-understand terms for parents who do not fully understand his field!

We are very grateful that Dr. Kirsch offered this visit via telehealth. We live in Columbus, Ga and we appreciated not having to add a 4 hour car ride with our 3 month old to our Thursday morning! He was very helpful and put us at ease!

Every visit since my son was born and he is 13 now, we have had almost an hour wait. I keep coming back because these doctors are the best. Please respect my time, especially since I drive an hour. Appointments are made for a reason. Thank you
