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 time for Dr. Kirchner. He is very thorough with his examination and explanation to the patient. He also takes time to listen to what I, as the patient, have to say about my symptoms. He is great!!

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.
