Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kirschner "I treat a wide variety of neurological disorders including stroke, epilepsy, Parkinsonism, dementia, multiple sclerosis, and headache. I have special expertise in electrodiagnostic testing and in the management of periperal nerve and muscle disorders. My goal is to treat people and not just test results, so I listen to my patients and fully explain my findings and proposed therapies. I strive to respect your busy schedule by seeing patients on time, and I am usually able to work in urgent visits within one or two days. I am an attending physician at five area hospitals, and I participate in most health insurance plans in our area. Please contact my office if you have any questions regarding your neurological care."
