Morris Plains, NJ |
Waited for 45 mins. Doctor was very rude to me and my 6 years old daughter during the check up and finished testing in 5 mins and recommended to see a pediatric ophthalmologist. When I told him that his office said he will see 5 years and above and if he is not comfortable making the assessment, he said he can write whatever glasses,but wanted to make sure. If he is not comfortable making the diagnosis, why is he seeing patients and wasting our time and money. Behaved like a jerk and cut me off.

Dr. Hirschfeld is the most outstanding doctor that I've come across. He has preformed cataract surgery on me recently. I would highly recommend Dr. Hirschfeld to everyone in need of an ophthalmologist. He is very attentive, takes time to explain things to his patients, and makes you feel secure in his performance. I cannot say enough about his staff. Everything about his office was and still is outstanding for me. Everyone working for him was sincere and truly cared about me as a person.

NO bedside manner at all. Very abrupt. DOESN'T listen and DOESN'T explain.Treats you like you're an idiot. Continuously runs out of room to work on other patients -- leaving you waiting there for a very long time until he finally comes back in. I just hope that he knowledgeable and knows what he is doing as far as my eyes are concerned.

Very abrupt, doesn't listen to what you have to say. Corrects his staff in front of the patient. Leaves office visit quickly
