What People Say About Dr. Michael Kirsch, MD

I read bad reviews about this doctor before my visit, but decided to keep my appointment and form my own opinion. Big mistake. He barely spent time with me and pretty much questioned why I was even there. Extremely hard to talk to. Didn't listen. Wouldn't recommend him to anyone. I've had much better doctors elsewhere who actually care and listen. This must be the reason he has so many open appointments available.

Dr. Kirsch is extremely knowledgeable about my conditions. All I have to do is tell him what signs and symptoms I am experiencing and he instantly knows what the problem is. I've had two occurrences I thought would be looked at like I was crazy but I went to see Dr. Kirsch anyway and it turns out he knew exactly what was wrong and took care of them both.

Dr. Kirsch, in my opinion is an excellent doctor and I would and have recommended him. He is patient, friendly, caring, and never rushes you, but takes time to answer questions and to be sure that you understand everything.

Absolutely horrible bedside manner. Makes every attempt to diminish your situation and how you are feeling. Very impatient when asking questions. Comes across as arrogant. Would have had a medical emergency if I would have listened to him.

Dr. Kirsch takes his time with you, is respectful and very thoughtful as you discuss your health concerns with him. I have seen him for years now, with regular screenings performed. The practice is top notch!

My wife and I have been a patients of his for 9 years, and we feel very comfortable with him. He has helped us out tremendously. He listens to your concerns and answers any questions you might have. I cannot say enough great things about him. I would recommend him to others.

Dr Kirsch has a list of questions he wants a yes or no to. If you try to go into an explanation he becomes angry and tells you it's a yes or no answer. He has no bedside manner. I'm sure he is very qualified. Recently I canceled that appointment and a few days later I got a letter threatening me and telling me I needed to reschedule. I don't think so, there are other Gastro doctors in the area that I'm sure will answer questions and not have an attitude.

Due to the fact that my doctor who I really liked and had great confidence transferred to a teaching position, I was assigned Dr. Kirsch. Naturally, I had some apprehension. I have been seeing Dr. Kirsch for 5 years. He is kind, interested in what I have to say and always answers my questions. I have great confidence in him and would recommend him to any. I am very confident in his abilities to treat me.

Dr. Kirsch is arrogant and impulsive. Had an emergency appointment scheduled and still waited 45 minutes in extreme pain. Staff was rude. He provided a brief inaccurate assessment. Performed an endoscopy and sent me home with a pill to decrease acid and to schedule a 2 week follow up. In the mean time had seen several other physicians and testing performed and had to cancel his appointment. He decided to discharge me. What because I gave advanced notice? I would not recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Kirsch was extremely unprofessional and has the bedside manner of a child. After he made me cry, his only concern was everyone out there is going to wonder what I did to you. He also took a personal call on his cell while in the room.....I've been waiting all day for this call. ....it was his contractor.
