Dr. Brian Kirsh is a no nonsense doctor. He is a true professional, a genuine and an honest individual. He is one of those excellent doctors' that I visited in my lifetime . If you have a genuine problem go to him and you will get the right treatment you would need - Syed
I was diagnosed by Dr kirsh as bipolar and now I have problems getting to jobs that I would love to volenteer cuz his stupid assessment wen I really was an alcoholic n I would go to see him wen I was under the influence so now my medical records stipulated as bipolar ya right I wish I never saw him he ruined my opertunity to do better now that I'm sober and I can't erase his error I'm not taking his stupid meds they make me feel worse than I first went to see him now that I don't take those crazy pills I feet disoriented i feel lot better n my mind is clear thanks for messing me up
I really wish I had seen this before I met him and wasted time with him. I don't even know where to begin, so I'll just say that if there were a zero rating for him, that's what he'd get. He's rude, unethical, unprofessional, ignorant, condescending and VERY inappropriate. People who are in need of a good doctor should not be made vulnerable to finding a doctor like this instead.
I have been seeing Dr Brian Kirsh for 9 years for Chronic Pain Management, I have visited Dr Kirsh in his previous practice at the Chedoke Pain Clinic and was involved in his 10 evening course in being Mindful as it relates to Pain Management and I continue to travel from the Niagara area to see him in his Toronto practise because I believe he is very good at what he does. I have had chronic pain for 18 years from a MVA and have seen more than my share of Doctors over the 18 years and over a dozen medical procedures. I feel qualified to make my comments as to the high regard I hold Dr Kirsh and how much he cares about the well being and long term care of his patients. Dr Kirsh is always fair , he can be firm but he is always empathetic to your situation and will always listen well and give you honest feedback, he has seen his share of patients from all walks of life and he calls is as he sees it, he is professional and is knowledgeable in his field of practice.

I think Dr.Kirsh represents the model of what a psychiatrist should be. He is understanding, patient, highly educated, informative and knowledgable about the issues that concern the patient. It is this rare combination of traits that makes Dr. Kirsh an outstanding physician. I have been going to see Dr. Kirsh for a few years now and am well aware of his ability to guide his patients through difficult issues and times. Frankly Dr.kirsh has helped me and continues to make a difference in my life.
Worst Dr I have been to, and I've been spending my whole life playing this game. Could tell the first day he was off gave him a chance anyways. Formed an opinion based on what he saw come through the door. Constantly pushing things on my husband and myself that would cost us money despite REPEATEDLY reminding him we were on ODSP and couldn't even afford public transit to see him the once a week. Always trying to find a reason to be "AHAH!" like he caught me lying. Obsessed with drug testing me and constantly trying to push me to admit smoking crack or meth even though with my health problems (try reading my chart!) it would kill me, and clean drug tests did nothing to quell it either. Left because he would not be reasonable about my meds, insisting I didn't need an extra day or 2 before I ran out, to get the prescription, that it suggested malice, and that every month has EXACTLY 4 weeks, so if I got my scrip on the 28th I should get it every month on the 28th cuz it's exactly 4 weeks!
If there was a magic pill that would fix everything incuding pain, we wouldn't need doctors. I've experienced chronic pain for 5+ yrs and been a patient of Dr. Kirsh for approx. 3.5 yrs. It upsets me to read some of the negative feedback on here. Dr. Kirsh has helped me deal with many issues, some of which I didn't know I had and some I never thought I'd ever share. Yes, trying different meds and doses can be a frustrating part of pain management as we all search for that magic life changing pill. But Dr. Kirsh invests his time into you and helps you search for other factors that may contribute to pain. Honestly, the group sessions didn't help me as I couldn't get into it. I did take some tips that help. I enjoy and look forward to our one on one appointments. I have easily learned to trust and let him into my world. I'm certainly not "fixed" and I still have pain but it's pain management, which teaches you to manage and live with pain as nothing will make it disappear entirely.
