What People Say About Dr. John Kirchner, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

About Me

Like many physicians, success stems from personal satisfaction.  For an orthopaedist, a patient who returns to your office with complimentary comments, improved function, significant relief of pain, and/or restoration of lifestyle signals success.  I feel most successful when my patients refer family or friends.
