No not go to Dr. Hirsh for Lyme. Staff is nice enough, office is clean enough, didn't have to wait long, but none of that matters is the doctor isn't knowledgeable on treatment.

My overall experience with Dr. Hirsh was not pleasant. When I was with her, she dismissed my symptoms and chalked it up to mono, which I told her I already tested negative for multiple times. She said that she was going to test again anyway and then when getting my blood drawn, the nurse takes 7 vials of blood without telling me what other tests they are doing. I come to find out later that she ordered five other tests without telling me. And it was a nightmare just to get my results back.

I saw Dr. Hirsh after not feeling well for a month. Another MD had diagnosed me with possible Lyme, and I wanted to be re-evaluated. I anticipated being actually tested for Lyme, and potentially for other tick-bourne diseases, as I had been in the past when I had similar symptoms and saw an ID physician in DC. Dr. Hirsh told me that there was no way that I had Lyme, that I didn't need to be tested, and that I should just 'wait out the symptoms.' I have been sick a month! Waited 70 minutes.

I would decidedly not recommend Dr. Hirsh. She spent about 15 min. with me and ordered numerous blood tests and an ultrasound. The office said the tests would take about 2 weeks. After 2 weeks I hadn't heard a word from them, so I called. I was then told that the tests normally take 3 weeks and they weren't all back yet. It has now been 4 weeks and not a word from them. The seeming indifference is astonishing.

I was seen by Dr Hirsh as an inpatient. I was not really happy with her assessment of my injury. She did multiple tests that I thought were unnecessary. Her bedside manner is not that great either. She also billed my insurance company with code of 1hr+ consultation when she only saw me for a few minutes. She makes a mountain out of a molehill.
