Dr Hirschfield has been our pediatrician since our first child was born in 2015. He was a 30 weeker premature baby, and helped Jack thrive. He is now also our daughter’s doctor as well. We trust him completely with the care of our children, and to make the best decision for their health. Highly recommend!

Dr. Hirschfield & his wife are simply amazing. My daughter’s pediatrician is Dr. Moore but Dr. Hirschfield is one of the on-call doctors for Dr. Moore. Both times I needed to talk to Dr. Hirschfield, he called back within 20 minutes after I left a message. He & his wife are both extremely caring, humble, & down-to-earth. He never once tried to convince me into “monitoring” my daughter or sending her to the ER if there was an emergency. He listened to my parental judgment and without question, he opened his office so my daughter can be seen & both times he opened within an hour. My daughter had a high fever last night and we all got tested for Covid after hours, right from our car. His wife called in less than 24 hours with the test results (we were all negative). We didn’t have to worry for days wondering if we had Covid. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing everything you have done four our family, especially for my daughter. More doctors should learn from you!

Doctor Hirschfield was available to our family after hours, within 30 minutes notice to provide much needed telemedicine that began the healing process for myself and my daughter. I have never had a doc more personable and concerned about our well-being. He took the time to assess our illness by asking as many questions as needed, instructing us on any self examination needed via telemedicine. His instructions were clear, and the diagnosis spot on. We are already feeling much better. In addition to the amazing appointment via zoom, Dr. Hirschfield was also available on a Saturday morning via text to answer questions regarding medicines. I am very pleased and will be seeing Dr. Hirschfield in the future for our medical needs.

Dr. Hirschfield is energetic and cares deeply about root causes of illnesses. He emphasizes nutrition, nutrition, nutrition - a great message for kids and parents alike. He is involved in a number of groups that research diet and wellness, and I like that he seems to be on the leading edge of food as medicine.

Dr. Hirschfield not only came in to the office to evaluate my feverish son on Christmas day, but did so with a smile on his face and a welcoming spirit. It was a true blessing to have his expert pediatric opinion in such an urgent situation, rather than spending hours at an ER visit with outrageous costs. He was kind, patient, and did a superb job narrating his thorough physical examination and treatment recommendations. I strongly recommend him to anyone. Too bad we live out of state!

Dr. Hirschfield is a great pediatrician! I am very happy to have found him for my daughter. She was born in August of 2015 and we have been with Dr. Hirschfield since then. I have been an ER nurse for over 8 years, so I know a little about the medical field and physicians. Dr. Hirschfield is extremely knowledgeable, competent, and he has a very good bedside manner. The office staff is great and are very helpful.

Dr. Hirschfield has been our pediatrician since our son was born. He is very knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions. I like that he will recommend more natural remedies when the situation is appropriate. I.E. Saline rinse for sinus congestion rather than immediately prescribing medicine. Of course sometime prescription medicines are required and he will tell you if he thinks that is the case. Great doctor, I recommend him to all my friends.

Dr.Hirschfield is the best! His emphasis on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle is one of the things I love most about him. He truly cares about his patients and that is evident by the research he does and the plethora of information that he gives to his patients and their families. He is a stand out physician that addresses the foundations of health rather than simply push the pharmaceutical aspect of health care. I know my son is in the vest of care.

I'm a first time mom and visited several pediatricians before making the decision to take my son to Dr. Hirschfield. After meeting with him I was impressed. He is very knowledgeable, personable, and compassionate. My son had a clogged tear duct at 1 month old and it happened on the weekend. I used the on call doctor after hours line. They were very helpful. However I still wanted my son to see a doctor. I was able to schedule an appointment that week. That makes a difference for a worried mom

Dr. Hirschfield and his staff are extremely accommodating and professional. They always get my kids in when they are sick and we never have to wait long. They always return calls and are polite and patient. Dr. Hirscfield always takes his time to listen to my concerns and always helps me gain a clear understanding of my child's condition. Even after we visit the office staff calls to check on my kids to make sure they are doing well. I highly recommend Dr. Hirscfield and his staff.
