Reception Area courtesy should read ZERO. Rude, nasty girls on phone and in person trying to help fix wrong pharmacy fax sent twice. Disrespectfully hung up phone on disabled who needed meds and they couldn't ask Dr or Pat to fix, send.

At first I was intimidated by the first phone call when I set my appointment. After meeting my Doctor, and her co workers, I am so thankful. She is awesome. i have not met Dr. Hirshfeld, regardless, I highly recommend this office for local patients.
