Beware of this doctor, neither she nor her nurse will return phone calls, just want to prescribe prednisone and then the side effects are your problem! When my son got thrush in the first couple of days, the nurse just barked at me, take him to your regular doctor! Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor.

Dr. Kirschner is a internationally renown pediatric crohns specialist... she isn't very open to alternative medicine, but as with any doctor, at the end of the day your healthcare is up to you...so if you tell her what kind of treatment you're GOING to do she'll have to accept it

she (as well as the other doctors I've seen at U of C) all seem very judgmental and close minded . . .but she got me better from my flare up when I came close to the brink so I guess I have a bit of a softspot for them in a way.

I agree though they are very big fans of prednisone

I completely agree with ( emillerstudio) we had an awful experience with her also.
When she can't figure out what is going on with the child she wants to blame the parents. There were times when it was an emergency and her nurse nor her ever returned our calls. When my son was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks she couldn't even come to see what was going on with him, she was only a few floors away in her office. Worst bedside manners I have ever seen.
