I am extremely happy with my cataract surgery. Felt very comfortable with Dr Hirschfeld. I was scared for so long and it was very easy. I can see great. Dr Hirschfeld is very nice and the girls in the office are so sweet. They make you feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend Dr Hirschfeld.

I had both cataracts done by Dr Hirschfeld and corrective implants put in. He took away all of my fears. I am so happy now. I recommend him to all my friends and family and I tell them yes that I am very happy with Dr Hirschfeld and you should go there for cataracts or any other reason.

I had cataract surgery in both eyes done by Dr. Hirschfeld. Everything went extremely well, as explained to me beforehand. Everything was done perfectly. Everyone in the office was great. This is the best run office I have seen. There were no doubts in my mind - it's a heck of a practice.

Dr and staff are extremely friendly, kind and competent. Had cataract surgery one month ago and I am so happy with the results. Would recommend everyone to come see Dr Hirschfeld for their cataract surgery and for general check ups.

Dr Hirschfeld performed my cataract surgery in both eyes and I can now see 20/20 without glasses. I have had an excellent experience here. I am so grateful that my friend Pat Mezzo referred me here! Minyi and the office staff are so nice also. Definitely recommend Dr Hirschfeld for any eye care needs!!

I am very disappointed!! Before seeing the doctor today, I decided to leave the office. I was asked to purchase a doctor's mandated mask before seeing this doctor. The multilayered fabric mask that I was wearing, given to me by Drug product manufacturing Pharmaceutical company for their production staff, was rejected. The extra charge for the mask was nothings compared to the doctor's charges, that I was willing to pay. It was the matter of principle. If the doctor feels it's important to wear their preferred mask, they should provide it, instead of capitalizing on the current situation. So sad!! To purchase a doctor's preferred mask to wear in their office, is not a CDC requirement or mandated by the NJ state.

I went to Lakeland for 5 or 6 years. I would spent 2 to 3 hours for an annual eye check up every time. The staff is knowledgeable, professional and friendly. However any doctor that consistently overbooks or allows their staff to overbook them loses me as a customer/patient. I have gone elsewhere and am very happy.

I recommend Dr Hirschfeld. I just had cataract surgery on my right eye by Dr Hirschfeld. I was able to compare two doctors because i had my left eye done previously by another doctor. Because I can make a comparison, I can tell you that Dr Hirschfeld did a much better job on the cataract surgery on my right eye. I am much happier with the result, so the doctor you go to does make a difference! Everything went smooth as clockwork.

Excellent. Excellent. Staff is excellent. I had cataract surgery done by Dr Hirschfeld on both eyes. I did not feel any pain - nothing at all. Not after surgery - not at all. I was scared because I thought I would have pain but I had no pain at all. I am seeing very clear in both eyes. I am VERY happy with the surgery. I would tell all of my friends to see Dr Hirschfeld.

I had cataract surgery in both eyes with Dr Hirschfeld. I am extremely happy with my result. I can see very clearly with both eyes. Dr Hirschfeld is a fantastic doctor. Everyone is friendly and nice people in the office. My sister is coming also to get her cataract surgery!! And years ago, Dr Hirschfeld removed metal in my brother-in-law's eye after he had a little accident. We have been so happy with Dr Hirschfeld and we are so happy to recommend him.

It's wonderful to see again and I thank Dr Hirschfeld and his staff for his professionalism and follow-up. Any calls were promptly responded to and everyone was really great. I would recommend Dr Hirschfeld to anyone with any eye issues. Definitely.

The office staff - everyone is wonderful - so helpful. Honestly, they are all wonderful. I tell all of my relatives and friends how highly I recommend Dr Hirschfeld.

I am thrilled after having cataract surgery in both eyes. Everything, the whole experience, the surgery, has worked out better than anything I expected. I am so glad that I was recommended to come here. From the front office staff to the doctor, everyone has been very pleasant. All questions were answered. I had a great experience from start to finish. Everything was explained in perfect detail. Also, when I needed glasses right away, the doctor accommodated me since I needed glasses immediately
