Review of Dr. Kirschner

-New York, NY |

My husband has played sports his whole life, and with that comes a lot of injuries. Dr Kirschner has been a Godsend for our family. My husband was told he needed back surgery and was able to avoid it thanks to this incredible physician. Any time he has an injury, he goes to see Dr K and is able to get the care needed to resolve his issues without invasive interventions. If you are facing an injury or chronic pain, I highly recommend going to see Dr K to understand your options.

Review of Dr. Kirschner

-New York, NY |

Dr. Kirschner has improved my quality of life immeasurably - specifically by helping me rejuvenate my body and avoid unnecessary surgery. After years of chronic lower back pain, I was resigned to having a complex yet completely unpredictable disc surgery. Dr. Kirschner, however, methodically examined me and pinpointed my lack of flexibility/core strength as key problem areas - and I haven't had a lapse in two years! He's engaging, thorough and knows his field cold - I highly recommend him!

Review of Dr. Kirschner

-

Have seen Dr. Kirschner several times. The first time, he seemed disinterested and bored with my case, as other reviewers have complained. Just when I was ready to give up, I had an excellent appointment, confirming the positive reviews others have given. He finally seemed engaged in my case and interested in helping me. The office staff has been consistently rude, however. I'm hanging in there, because I think the treatment is finally working, but it has been a bumpy road.

Horrible experience. The Dr. seemed bored, didn't listen and had minus zero bedside manner. He treated me like a car that was broken, not a person. Wow. HSS ???

This was one of the WORST dr. experiences I've ever had. He actually said, "well I order some tests if you them but I don't think you need them." Limping in pain, I found a great Dr. - she ordered a test and it turns out I have a huge spur at the insertion point of my hamstring that's causing enormous problems. He paid NO attention to the pain and only said I needed to exercise. C'mon, HSS, get some decent dr.'s. He also made me wait in a gown for over an hour.

I will definitely recommend this doctor. He cares about husband patients and explain in details the problems and listen to you.

Review of Dr. Kirschner

-New York, NY |

Very bad experience with Dr. Kirschner. During my visit he did not appear to be listening as he uttered "ahmm" every 2 seconds as if to be dismissing/rushing me through my explanation of symptoms. Once finished he asked if I had seen a therapist, suggesting my pain was in my head and to just continue along as I had been. When I told him this was not possible because I was in constant pain he suggested that maybe what I was feeling wasn't actual pain. This was the most insulting Dr appt ever.
