Ratings for Dr. Jerry Kirsh
I read the comments and I'm stunned. This not the Dr I grew up with for 20yrs. Very old school indeed. He must be 90 now. He used to tell my brother he was a fountain of MISinformation. Very behind on current issues. Over medicated my father with 4 different cholesterol meds. When I tried to tell him that I was concerned about this regiment that obviously wasn't helping, he looked at me and snapped saying that when I get a medical license, then I can talk to him. When I told him that 4 pills for cholesterol is too much chemicals, he couldn't argue with that. He gave me a snarly look and he scaled it back to 2pills. Later he bumped my dad back up to 3, so I fired him. Had all our charts transferred to my current Dr who has been wonderful, well educated, and collaborates with pts and their families. The receptionists were snooty, but he was intolerable. A real stick in the butt. Good riddance !!
He is an amazing doctor! He delivered my dad and has looked after my family for years. I am now in my mid twenties and I trust him completely. He knows his patients health and how to prevent future issues because he is thorough , knowledgeable, connects with the best specialists and communicates well. The wait time is a little long if you are a walk in, but it is so worth it! He sees you, and after some examinations he either has an answer for you or some tests that need to be done so he can conclude his ideas of what may be wrong. I only recently moved to Toronto, but before I did, my family and I have always come from Mississauga, Oakville etc anywhere we lived to come and see him because he is the best at what he does...being a great doctor
After a few years of absense I came back to Toronto, the staff really took care of my situation, they are very professional and dedicated, everything is done the way it has to be done. Dr Kirsch is a great doctor, and he ll make sure you receive a good treatment, I have just good things to tell about this Doctor, may God bless him!
I saw doctor for the first time when I moved to Canada, I couldn't expect that it won't be expensive at all, I had a bad flu and pink-eye I didn't know what to do, I was waiting in line for almost 1 hour and half but when I saw Dr. Kirsh I undersood that it's worth it a lot, he prescripted me good medicine and gave me a few advices, I really appreciate that, thank you Dr. Kirsh!
Doctor K is old school, that's for sure. If you think of your healthcare as a cross between medical buffet and experimentation, like to meddle with new age approaches and try new techniques on your own body, he might not be the health practitioner for you. He also doesn't appreciate "but wikipedia/Science Today/my med student friend says..." sort of arguments. His knowledge is solid, treatments potent (if old fashioned) and approach very thorough. He doesn't hold back any tests you might need and is very good with making sure you get the referrals to the specialists you need quickly. He also doesn't mind addressing several health problems at a time. He doesn't judge the winners - if something's working for you, like dieting or yoga where he'd prefer drugs, he's okay with it. The wait times are a little longer (but not longer than an average walk-in) and one of his secretaries is indeed not pleasant, but overall I am extremely happy with this doctor and feel very well taken care of.
Every time I've been to Dr.Kirsh he has been helpful and attentive. Always seems cheery to me. Once I brought up 3 separate issues and he addressed them all without putting up a fuss. The worst thing is the wait which can be up to 1.5 hours. I need to take a lot of time off work for 10 miuntes with the Dr.
First of all this doctor doesn't drive a corvette (per his secretary) and secondly he's too thorough if you ask me. He sent me for all kinds of test. He keeps full history of his patients...have you seen the filing system they have. Keep it up DR. K.,
I was referred to him from a friend many years ago. On the first visits he didn't seem so bad...not that great either. But later on he seemed very detached like it's all business. He didn't like me asking him more than a couple of questions before he would become ''iritated''. He called me irrational & a fountain of misinformation. I'd cringe when I'd ask him a question... He makes you feel like your kind of dumb for asking. He's really old. One day I saw him park a corvette in one of the public parking lots years ago. As for his quality of care, I'm not that keen on him; & his secretaries seem very depressing, too. I'm not referring anyone to him. I've since found someone better. I think he should retire. And he makes you wait too long too. You have to show up about 2 hrs before he shows up. & very 'antiquated', yes.
