Many years ago, Dr. K did a partial knee replacement on my right knee. That knee is doing great. I just saw him for my left knee. I was really afraid that I was going to k=need a replacement again because even though I did so well I don't like the idea of surgery. After an x-ray Dr K told me I did not need a knee replacement and I am being treated differently.

Dr. K operated on my knee a few years ago so when I had pain in my other knee there was no one else I was going to. He he so good. He spent an awesome amount of time with me and explained everything completely. I Don;t need surgery now. He put to together a plan for me to avoid that. I really appreciated it. Thank you.

For the past 2 years I went to a bunch of hospital clinics and doctors to get help for my shoulder. One of the places finally got an MRI but I then went to 7 more people who said they could not do anything. I heard about the clinic at BronxCare and went to see Dr. K. He told me he was not a shoulder surgeon but had a lot of experience seeing shoulders in clinic. He examined me and took a good look at my MRI. The best thing was that he showed me how his partner there will be able to fix the tear in my shoulder. He set me up with an appointment to see Dr. Allen soon. This was great news and I appreciate the time he spent with me and the care he gave me.

I have really horrible arthritis in both knees. I have not seen a doctor like this who spends time explaining everything that needs to get done. It seems he is the chief of the bone surgeons here and his team is great. He sent me to his knee replacement surgeon for surgery. I am glad my problem is finally being taken care of.

I had my left knee operated on but my right went to Dr. K for what are called platelet rich plasma PRP injections. He draws my own blood, puts the tube in a spinner and then pulls out some fluid that takes care of the inflammation in my knee. After three of these I am feeling amazing. Great that the office gives these kind of shots.

I went to another bone doctor who told me I needed a knee replacement. Dr. Kirschenbaum went over all my x-rays very carefully showing me why a knee replacement was not going to help with. This was great news! Now I am on medications and getting an injection and it's working.

Good doctor. He worked with me a long time to help get rid of my knee pain from arthritis without surgery, This is good for me because I can't have surgery now. He uses a new type of injection for the pain in the knee.

Not many people have rheumatoid arthritis. I do and Dr. K really knew a lot about how different treatments can help me. He treated the arthritis I had in his specialty and sent me to hid hand surgeon for that. I am so glad they have so many =good doctors there.

I had surgery with another doctor at another hospital and Dr. K was kind enough to see me because I was in pain. He made sure I did not have an infection which was good. He gave me some pills for my inflammation which worked great. I recommend him and his entire clinic.

I saw him in a clinic near his hospital. The hospital, I think, runs this clinic in Washington Heights. I had a thumb injury. He knew exactly what I had, even though I found out later he really is a hip and knee expert. Looks like he knows a lot more because he got me right to a hand doctor to fix my problem. Thank you.

I always love it when I read about the good things other people are saying about Dr. K! I met him almost 10 years ago when he first came to my hospital in the Bronx. He replaced my right knee and has taken care of so many other body parts, I almost can;t count. Glad I met him.
