Patient Comments (3)
Birmingham |
this man is a liar and will be sued for telling a patient that he will do knee surgery when a patient is in dier need and he refused that he came into the room and told us and we have witnesses. He takes an oath and he lied and I am the witness and we will be going forth on a lawsuit on him. He is the most horrible, dishonorable, fligazy surgeon and i would NRVER RECOMMEND him to anyone. Run if you see him. Not a good doctor or surgeon. Beware. He is horrible with no heart.

I was given no hope for my ankle repair. The doctors all stated that the ankle was too far gone to repair. Dr. Kirchner recommended ankle replacement. Thanks to Dr. Kirchner I had the surgery and have been very mobile virtually pain free for two years.

I have been a patient of his for years. I completely trust this man with any decisions pertaining to my health.
