Biography

Dr. Kirts has been an established psychiatrist in DeKalb since 1972. He is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. “I’ve never been particularly talented with my hands. I was never an artist or a carpenter. I was always better at talking to people. I’m 71 and I always thought I’d retire at 65, but I’ve stayed on because I enjoy working with my patients,” said Dr. Kirts.

Dr. Kirts specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorders and oppositional, defiant, and conduct disordered pre-adolescents and adolescents.

In his spare time, Dr. Kirts enjoys spending time with grandchildren, running, and playing the clarinet.
