Dr. Hirsh did my mother knee replacement. Great job, he is kind, warm hearted and sympathetic. He has a great staff, the surgery went very well no complications and my mom is elderly women with many underlining diseases. Thank you Dr. Hirsh.

Dr. Hirsch is a great doctor. I has helped me out for a long time with my Total R and L hip replacements. My experience with him has been great. Also he has done my friends hips too. with no problems.

Dr. Hirsch was recommended to me by Dr. Susan Pollan, my pain management provider. I trust her implicitly and she was correct in her assessment of Dr. Hirsch. He replaced my cousin's knee and will replace mine in late July. My cousin's experience was great and I am certain that mine will be, as well. The only difficulty I have had is in reaching the office staff by telephone.

My former review of Dr. Hirsch was not accepted by HealthGrades. I suppose they felt it was too harsh. What's harsh is a doctor treating patients and their families like they are clueless, stupid people.
