What People Say About Dr. John Hirsch, MD

The most arrogant individual I've had to deal with. His personality coupled with people in severe pain is a disaster waiting to happen. I'm quite surprised there is only one ding on his medical license. I encourage others to read the disciplinary actions taken in the report by the Texas Medical Board. My situation in the report is eerily similar to what happened to this poor patient in the discipline report by the medical board. Beware.

I personally use Dr. Hirsch and I have referred him to 3 of my friends. Myself and one of my friends use him specifically for back pain and the others are for shoulder and hip. We all love his treatment and his professionalism, and his staff is very accommodating. I read some other reviews from last year and it seems they must have been speaking of a different doctor

Worst care possible. Dr. Hirsch did a procedure on my neck to releive pain. Instead it left me in bed for 2 days and limited work for over a week. I called his office the next morning and took over 7 hours to prescribe pain meds. No appt to find out what happened,just meds (which was nurese, to this day Dr. Hirsch has yet to call me). Instead i get a letter stating i am no longer a patient ( for stating my concerns for lack of care).
