    I liked Dr. Hirsch. He doesn't say a lot but he gathers your information, records it and then analyzes it. He is no nonsense. I'm confident in his analysis. He helped me with my vision whereas no one else could. I definitely recommend him. Smart guy!

    The visit was a waste of time! He kept typing without asking me anything about my symptoms. He sneezed and blew his nose with tissue paper, but never washed his hand before he examined me. During exam, he put a wooden stick in his mouth for me to look at, then he touched the part that was in his mouth and never washed his hands. Very poor hygiene!! Then he wanted to do an expensive test that I don't think is necessary. I will never go back. He over billed too!
    Will never go back. Drove 2 hrs 1 way to see a doctor that was a waste of time and gas. He walked in sat n typed typed typed before acknowledging me. Then said come close i dont bite, follow my ball over n over, sent me to another room for a test then had to wait to see him again for results. My daughter wasnt allowed in with me. Very short with you, doesnt answer questions, will flat out ignore you, and all this after a 4 hour wait! Unreal. Never again.

    UNBELIVABLE. TYPED TYPED ANSWERED QUESTIONS WITH 1 OR 2 WORDS.WOULDN'T LET MY WIFE IN TO ASK QUESTIONS, FINALLY DID. ONE OF 3 THINGS WILL HAPPEN. VISION INPROVES STAYS THE SAME AND GET WORSE. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS I CAN'T HELP YOU

    Don't waste your time with this condescending physician who was less than professional. He was exceptionally rude and in fact seemed to have very little medical knowledge. He ran a bunch of tests said he could do nothing for me but would like to see me back in a couple of months. I'm sure you would like to charge me more money for terrible patient care. No thanks!

    I had my appt today with Dr. Hirsh. Needless to say I was not impressed with him. I was called into the exam room by a female (don't know her name or her title as she didn't introduce herself), she asked questions, ran tests. My husband and I had to wait in the waiting room 30 minutes until Dr. Hirsh became available. They sent me to another exam room to see him. He said hello. No introductions. Sat there, typed into his computer, looked in my eyes, typed some more, and said he couldn't help me.
