Not recommended at all! Dr Kirschner is condescending, rude, and looks down on his patients. He’s not interested in your input at all and actually misdiagnosed me dangerously because of it. You will get better care elsewhere!

Dr. Krischner has been working with me on my migraines. He always takes the time to listen to what I have to say and reviews my migraine diary with me each time. He is excellent about discussing options with me and working with me to find an option I'm comfortable with. Overall I've been very happy...more
