Dr. Kirsch is a wonderful surgeon! My 3.5 month old son had to undergo surgery recently and we could not have had a better experience with him! As a previous urology nurse, I question everything- and as a mom, I fear everything.. Dr. Kirsch put me at ease, answered my questions, and calmed my nerves about the surgery. His bedside manner is amazing, which I appreciate more than anything! I highly recommend him and would go back if we ever needed anything in the future.
Dr. Kirsch and his staff are phenomenal! They are always so accommodating in seeing our son in a pinch. Dr. Kirsch has such a great bedside manner, and my son was really comfortable with him, which made our visit a million times easier! I can’t say enough good things about him.
Intelligent, kind, genial doctor. Would recommend to anyone. Surely a favorite among kids and adults alike!
My daughter is a patient with Dr. Kirsch. He performed procedures that have made my daughter's special needs much more manageable. Any issues we have had, Dr. Kirsch has helped us resolve them.
