in Algonquin, IL |
Due to the extent of my esophageal problems, my gastro doctor in Elgin, IL sent me directly to Dr. Hirano for treatment, as he felt that my condition should be handled at Northwestern. Dr. Hirano is a wonderful doctor, has superb medical knowledge, takes the time to address your condition and advises next steps and will always get you in for testing if there is a tight schedule. I would advise anyone to directly see Dr. Hirano - I have full faith in him to handle my condition.

Awesome doctor. I have been through about 25 endoscopes over the past 5 years including the elimination diet while seeing Dr Hirano and could not be happier that he is my doctor.

Dr Hirano is kind, intelligent caring and listens. Wish my new insurance covered him.
