Dr. Kirshon delivered my baby and saved her life! Any doctor you see in the HPA group deals with high risk pregnancies that require attention. So I'm willing to wait a little longer so another mother can have the care she deserves, because when the time comes I want the same care! He delivered my baby girl 3 months early and walked me through the whole process up until he left the OR. I am forever grateful to Dr. Kirshon!

I was an older first time successful in caring a baby. It was triplelet pregnancy. We called over 30 OBG and no one would see me. He was fabulous I now have 3 very wonderful 4.5 year old. Thank you!!!!

Poor experience. I am father of 5 children already and went to see this Dr. for 1st exam with wife. Waiting room was like a DMV office and smelled. 1st nurse was great, 2nd one was rude and had no bedside manners. Dr.answered his cell phone, texted when we were talking to him instead of giving us his attention. He even walked out of the room to take a phone call and didn't even say excuse me.

Dr. Kirshon specializes in high-risk pregnancies, and he deliveres babies (as opposed to whoever in the practice is on call when you go into labor like at majority of other practices). As a result, he almost always runs late, which is very annoying, yes, but to me it is a small price to pay for being in the care of the best doctor. Dr Kirshon is very personable and I loved his bedside manners. He delivered my two kids, both via Csection, and the scar healed beautifully-it's very small, and low.

I was referred to Dr Kirshon when I found out at 12 weeks I was having TRAP sequence twins. He was extremely helpful. When I went in to my next appointment he found that the healthy baby did not make it and was so gentle with me and making sure I was ok and knew what the next step would be. I am now going back to him in a couple weeks for a level 2 ultrasound at 27 weeks due to my baby MAYBE having a heart defect. I know we will be in great hands!

He was awesome, accurate, and very detailed. He was very professional and gentle. I normally prefer a female doctor, but I'd choose Dr Kirshon over any female dr Ive seen in a heartbeat.
