This doctor is a great doctor, and I am lucky too have him as my doctor!

May 11, 2020 7:17 PM

This was a telehealth visit. I feel this video visit went well, though I did forget to mention a few concerns to my doctor.

May 11, 2020 7:17 PM

All things considered, it was a good visit, but I would prefer to see doctor in person.

May 2, 2020 8:41 PM

I always feel that doctor takes time to explain my choices as far as keeping my blood pressure in a good range. We also discussed getting my weight down too.

May 2, 2020 8:41 PM


April 11, 2020 10:38 AM

Dr Kirschner is an outstanding doctor!

April 11, 2020 10:38 AM

March 21, 2020 3:05 PM

A visit with Dr. Kirschner is ALWAYS a good experience.

March 19, 2020 7:14 AM

I can't thank Dr. Kirschner and my health care team enough. They have all kept me alive and improving.

March 17, 2020 9:29 AM

Dr. Kirschner is always pleasant and a great listener. Knows his patients life style and truly cares about them. Offers suggestions and recommendations as needed.

March 14, 2020 12:00 AM

My doctor was very concerned about what was going on with me. He asked a lot of questions and gave me a lot of medical advise.

March 14, 2020 12:00 AM

My experience was very good. A great dr.

March 10, 2020 7:12 AM


February 24, 2020 11:15 PM

I always have had a great experience with Dr Kirschner and his staff. The front desk and nursing staff are excellent. The only issue I had was with an office manager, who I had a very unpleasant interaction with at the end of this last visit. I was not impressed at all with her or her attitude toward the issue that I brought to her attention regarding a referral which was not sent, which then resulted in me getting a big bill. Additionally, she was supposed to contact me to follow up in 2 days. I never heard back from her.

February 24, 2020 11:15 PM

Bad experience with an office manager this past visit. I have already put in a complaint to Advocate regarding this.

February 17, 2020 3:40 PM

very thorough in exam and questions

February 17, 2020 1:50 PM

Dr. Kirschner is simply one of the best physicians I have ever been associated with. The entire team at Nessett family practice are all good doctors. Dr. Kirschner is the platinum standard!

February 17, 2020 1:50 PM

Dr. Kirschner always listens and encourages further digging into the issues at hand, in the past and looking to the future. I dread the time when he decides to retire.

February 11, 2020 10:40 AM

Excellent. Greg Kirschner has been my primary care doctor for over 15 years. Seeing a doctor regularly has been an excellent experience. Greg is a good doctor and a concerned person.

February 11, 2020 10:40 AM

Can't say enough about the benefits of a primary physician who I see regularly.

February 10, 2020 5:03 AM

Very good.

February 6, 2020 12:27 PM

Always pleased with the services provided by Dr. Kirschner. He listens to my issues/concerns and explains things in detail. I am always involved in decisions regarding my care.

February 6, 2020 12:27 PM

My only complaint is that it remains difficult to get an appointment with Dr. Kirschner when care is needed "right away" as for illness or injury!! This is ongoing!!

January 28, 2020 11:23 AM

Dr. Kirschner is an excellent physician!! I have been seeing him for years.

January 27, 2020 6:17 PM

Dr. Kirschner exceeds my expectations in kindness, respect and knowledge

January 27, 2020 3:01 PM

Dr Kirschner provided a thorough annual physical and listened to my questions. He always provides caring, thoughtful advice to my concerns and looks for the best solutions.

January 27, 2020 3:01 PM

My experience has always been very positive. Dr. Kirschner and his staff treat their patients with respect and genuine sense of caring. I am so fortunate to have Dr. Kirschner ad my PCP for the last 15 years.

December 23, 2019 1:34 PM

Dr. Kirschner is an excellent listener and takes the necessary time with his patients. Am concerned that institutional medicine will diminish his ability to spend time with patients and turn him into a record keeper.

December 16, 2019 5:09 PM

I have NOT come across anyone in health with more communication skills, showing a total investment in compassion, having an ear for purposeful listening or the ability to really understand a patients needs like Dr. Kirchner. Simply, he is the best ambassador for advocate and for medicine. I wish the younger entrants in the medical practitioner' field had the aptitude for the skill sets that Dr. Kirschner has. He models the behaviors we'd want of every physician.

December 16, 2019 5:09 PM

a great experience as there is a genuine and honest investment in my needs and questions.

December 5, 2019 3:01 PM

Dr. Kirschner is top of the line as a physician and a person. He cares about my 'overall' health and is very knowledgeable to my history.

December 5, 2019 3:01 PM

There will never be a bad experience with Dr. Kirschner because he is wonderful.

November 25, 2019 6:03 PM

Dr. Kirschner is the finest doctor I've been treated by. He is thoughtful, thorough and genuinely cares for his patients. The true for Nurse X. She's incredible.

November 18, 2019 4:03 PM

very excellent visit. very thorough

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Provider is a very good doctor. Almost impossible to see him when needed (sick). Have to see a intern instead when sick.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr K is so appreciated by my husband and I.

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Was very happy with the personal attention given.

October 16, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is very thorough and attentive during my visits. He is never in a hurry to move to his next patient.

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Always cordial. Inquisitive, asking direct and open questions about the reason for the visit and the circumstances that required it.

September 26, 2019 7:00 PM

He was thorough & caring. He took time to answer my questions, he gave me options, informed me of what he knew.

September 24, 2019 7:00 PM

I really respect Dr. Kirschner - have so for many years.

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

I have always felt very cared for from Dr. Kirschner! He is definitely concerned in me & my health. I would not ever want to change doctors.

September 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor Kirschner saw me for high blood pressure. We discussed changing or adding more medication to control it.

August 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Kirshner is the best

August 30, 2019 7:00 PM


August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

we love doctor Kirchner. He is very tuned into our physical, emotional, and spiritual needs (which is something we've requested). He is very knowledgeable, yet very humble.

August 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Greg Kirchner is a wonderful doctor. Caring, thorough, and great bedside manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM


August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is a remarkable man. A Godly man who knows I can share that part of me with him and visa versa. He is amazingly attentive and kind.

August 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Good standard visit.

July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kuschner is always great to see. The problem is that if an urgent appt. is needed, I cant' see him. The average wait for an appt. is 3-4 months.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

dr kirschner spent a lot of time discussing my health which is a good thing

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

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.

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is an excellent doctor. he is a great listener and is very attentive.

June 15, 2019 7:00 PM

June 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent experience, as always with Dr. Greg Kirschner.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Kirschner provided a caring and complete review of my health. He was sensitive to my well being, physically, emotionally, mentally. He provided excellent suggestions for my continued health.

May 12, 2019 7:00 PM

he was very caring. this was my first visit and it was on a Monday and he took the time to go over my history during the weekend my mom brought in a lot of papers and he listened wrote down notes and really cared I appreciated it

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

My visit with Dr Kirschner on the date mentioned was excellent and always excellent. He shows kindness, compassion, care and encouragement.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Greg Kirschner is a fine GP he has been my personal physician for close to 20 years. Excellent care. Excellent relationship.

March 23, 2019 7:00 PM

All went well.

March 16, 2019 7:00 PM

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.

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

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. I would recommend him to all friends and family looking for a physician.

February 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is always great - when I can see him & getting in for sick visits is nearly impossible. Appt. are scheduled months ahead for routine care.

February 5, 2019 6:00 PM

terrific doctor and nurse. staff excellent as well

February 2, 2019 6:00 PM

Great doctor.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

An excellent experience, as always... As it has been the last 15 or 20 years.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

The entire Nessett office has always been great from receptionist to nurses and of course Dr. Kirschner.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is the example for what a physician should be - respectful, listener, highly knowledgeable & professional, takes the TIME that patient's need. Could NOT be better!

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

August 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Good as always...

August 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is an excellent doctor. He is very thorough and always listens to my concerns. This visit was for my annual physical. Dr. Kirschner brought a student with him to observe the proceedings,with my permission. We went over my complete history and did a thorough exam. I think he set an excellent example for the student,as to how an annual physical should be done. He has been my doctor for over 10 years now and I feel very lucky to have had him. l hope he stays around for at least 10 more years.

August 6, 2018 7:00 PM

Had a medical student sit in on visit so more time spend going over past history etc.. overall visit felt personal and not rushed at all

August 6, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Kirschner is the kindest man I know. He is so easy to talk with and the fact that we share a common bond about God is a real bonus. That matters very much to me.

July 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Greg K is outstanding. He always provides the best care and is attentive to all my questions and concerns. Dr Greg K is the best physician I have ever had and his attention to care speaks volumes.

Very good. Doctor K. has always been professional, concerned about me, kind, and helpful.

June 26, 2018 7:00 PM

This visit was an extremely JOY-FULL one 3 months ago I was released from the hospital following an acute stroke, a neuro intervention was performed 2 blood clots removed, followed b two weeks of intense therapy. My progress is 100% complete recovery. I am thankful to Lord and very appreciative tot he medical team who were such blessings. Dr. R_____ the visit we are discussing was a celebration.
