Zion, IL |
Dr. Kirch ordered blood work and an x ray and when I didn't hear back in a week I called for the results. I was told they had been put in another patient's file and they just found them. They told me the doctor would call me later. The next day his nurse called me instead with the results and told me to just stay on the plan the doctor prescribed. No follow up visit, nothing. I had been going to Dr. Kirch since he graduated medical school, since 1977, but no more. I have suffered too long.

I saw Kirch 3x, each time he acted like a jerk (I suspect because of my insurance) and refused to validate my symptoms. He interrupted me a lot, told me I was making things up, that my problem was diet and chronic inflammation. When I showed him the results of my HIDA scan (Gallbladder Test) he told me surgery wouldn't help bc my problems weren't GB related. I started tearing up and he mocked me. I'm now a month post-op and doing FANTASTIC. Kirch is has abuser vibes and I feel bad for the staff.

My daughter saw this Doctor, he was not helpful at all.Went to ER for pain, they did a cat scan, advised her she had proctitis, made an appt with Dr. Kirch, but was having more pain, tried to call the office to get in sooner, left messages for nurse, it took me to finally call before we received a call back 2 days later. She was able to get in sooner, but was told by the Dr, colon's do that sometimes. No colonoscopy needed, did not feel that it was serious - new Dr, she has ulcerative colitis!

Dr. Kirch is a great doctor. I went to him for digestive issues, and after changing my direct I wasn't getting any relief. He schedule a colonoscopy right away, and it was discovered that I had a large tumor in my colon. Although he was about to go on vacation, he made sure I got in with a surgeon ASAP, and took the time to call me and discuss options after I underwent other tests. He made it his priority to make sure I was taken care of, and was very friendly and compassionate.

He is a very rude Doctor; no patience at all with patients.
