Stuck me with a permanent limp.
Woodstock, VA |
What a blunderer. This man misdiagosed my back pain as a pulled hamstring, prolonging my pain and delaying my treatment for what another doctor correctly diagnosed as spinal stenosis. After my scorching response to a questionnaire about my treatment from the local hospital, Dr. Hirsch soon departed for Florida. I hope he likes it there.

One of the finest orthopedic surgeons in the area. No nonsense approach. Tells you like it is and what to expect. Gives you got choices and levels the decision to you. I wouldn't go to anyone else. Had a full hip replacement and was walking 2 hours after surgery. I'm actually ahead of schedule in my recovery. Treats you like an equal not a superior.

One of the best orthopedic doctors in the business. His no nonsense tells it like it is ways could easily be misconstrued as a lack of bedside manor. If I ever have to have another procedure and he's not available I don't know what I will do. He treated me like an equal and told me exactly what to expect and how to recover quickly. 5 days after a full hip replacement I'm walking without a walker. Although I keep it handy in case, I'm very impressed that in just a few short days I'm ahead of
