I love Dr. HIRSCH. He has now been my gastro Dr. For 6 yrs now. He his a no BS doctor. If you want a doctor that will give to you straight, he is your man. No excuse Dr. You follow his instructions or his wonderful nurse... Who is also ewually knowledgeable...you will very happy.

DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR. I did not realize how poor the care I received from his was until I went to see another doctor. He walked in for 5 minutes to briefly listen to my health issues and concerns. Then proceeded to prescribe a medication that is to be taken daily for chronic constipation without any further test nor did he request a follow up appointment. He then told me that his nurse could explain the medication better than he and left the room. Gastroenterology Associates are far better.
Jackson, MS |
Worst office and bedside manner of 100's of physicians I have seen. His nurse, however, is one of the finest individuals you will find. She explains everything in detail and stands ready to assist in a very kind manner. I will NEVER again see this doctor again. He, and his operating staff, treat patients much like a superior officer treats the lowest ranked soldier. Once in the operating room, the patient is jerked into various positions without being warned or asked to do so voluntarily.
Lafayette, LA |
I really like this Dr. He is pleasant; responsive; knowledgeable; and quick. I was in and out in less than 40 minutes.
