We are so grateful for Dr. Kirsch, he did an amazing job with my daughters surgery. I actually googled him before i met him and, from what i saw, i was relieved to know that one of the best would be helping my child. Everything about our experience with him and his staff was more than I expected. Isabella is also amazing! Im appreciative of both of them for being there for us in this whole process. I would recommend them to anyone!
