Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Kirshner successfully repaired a mitral valve for my mom, who is 75 years old. He was informative, personable, kind and explained everything so that we could understand the procedure. He was confident, easy to talk to and showed compassion. He never made us feel like we were rushed when asking questions and stopped by frequently to check on her before and after surgery. Dr. Kirshner is an excellent surgeon and my mom had wonderful results. We are grateful she found such an amazing doctor!

This is my five star review for Dr. Kirshner. I had my open heart surgery on 4/18/2016 and had several valves replacement. My procedure was invasive, but his precise ability was top-quality which allowed him to complete my operation with ease. I am very particular person, especially since this was my first open heart surgery. I highly recommend him to any patient. He is professional, genuine, and compassionate. I have a second chance in life to be with my family because of him. In my opinion fiv

Dr Kirshner saved my life when others were recommending my wife look into to Hospice for me. He didn't promise anything but said he thought he could help. I trusted him and here I am 4 years later still alive and living a good life. Thank you, Dr. Kirshner.
