Dr Kirschner is a true credit to his profession. He exemplifies physicians who take the Hippocratic Oath and then live out their pledge by providing smart, attentive patient care. My own 30-year career in the medical industry included grading health care providers. So, my perspective for excellence in care is probably more "tuned' then most people. When diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer, I consider it a true blessing to have been referred to him. He is, without doubt, one of the nation's top up-and-coming doctors in his field of practice.
