He is a gifted eye surgeon. He has the best bedside manners. The combination of these two traits are hard to come by.

He ruined my life. Because of the severe pain and vision loss after his surgery I can no longer work.

Dr. Kirchner's staff worked me in quickly when I had an eye emergency and we're very courteous. The optical staff take you right back and begin the various testing required before seeing the doctor. Once that is complete, you go right back to the room for the doctor. I've never had to wait a long...more

I was made to wait for 90 minutes after my scheduled appointment. No apology, very rude staff, very hard to get through to them by phone.
