Our 2 yrs old is Dr Kirsch's patient and we couldn't have asked for a better doctor for him. He explains things in the language that a non-medical professional can understand and takes a really good care of his patients.

I really like Dr. Kirsch and find him to be personable and very intelligent. I do believe he cares about my son's health and well-being. I do wish he would take a little more time to explain necessary procedures, just to help understand it better in layman's terms. He is willing to answer questions, but sometimes as a layperson it can be difficult to know what to ask. What is routine and simple for him is not for us as parents/patients. I really don't want this to come off as a negative criticism however. He is a fantastic doctor and I know my son is in the best hands. I just wanted to offer some constructive feedback.
