some of these questions were tricky. Especially the ones that say in the past 3 months. I am in the process of changing doctors and hospitals. this is my first visit with dr. Kirchner. Also my first experience with Lutheran General. the experience almost wants to make me cry. A good cry! It was scary to go to a new doctor and a new facility. I was so pleased at how kind everyone was and how helpful everyone was. everything went smoother than I could possibly expect it to. dr. Kirchner was incredible! He came across as such a caring, knowledgeable health care provider. I praise the Lord that him and his staff came into my life. after his conversation with me I do not think I have any secrets at all! He was so thorough and humble. I am so glad I decided to change all my doctors and the hospital. I know that I'm in good hands.

The best doctor I ever had. He calls even after hours to speak about blood work every six months and explains my quality of health with my wife. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. Since I go to the appointments while she is working I can count on the doctor to give results in detail when he speaks with her in the evening. Not many doctors are this committed.

Dr. Kirschner is a bright, kind and thoughtful doctor that genuinely cares for his patients. I feel confident with Dr. Kirschner that he is offering his best advisement for my health and my family's health. He is the primary doctor for my husband and daughter and my late parents. He always devotes his complete attention and time during my visit and shows genuine care and compassion for my personal situation and health.
