Excellent bedside manner when discussing cardiac issues. I worked in healthcare for 40 years and he did explain my cardiac situation better then most had done in the past. Great personality . We share an interest in a hobby but he makes sure I understand my medical issues before we get to talking about other things. I do suggest Dr Kirchhoffer to other people in need of a cardiologist.
