My review of doctor hirshorn is one of the easiest I? have every done. How to review the doctor that took my hip pain away? It is totally gone!!! Thank you Dr. Hirshorn!
in Gulfport , FL |
I chose Dr Hirshorn after reading and studying reviews. I was extremely disappointed in my choice. He was very arrogant; inpatient and showed little professionalism. I brought a recent MRI film & report of my knee to my appointment. His office required x rays anyway. He only read the report & didn't look at all the x-rays. Eachquestion I asked about my knee seemed to irritate him and he would Only answer in reference to the MRI report, not offering his own evaluation. wouldn't check add'l prob!

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Hirshorn! He's an extremely skilled surgeon, thorough in his evaluation of the problem, and very easy to talk to about possible solutions. It is obvious that he really cares about his patients. His staff is warm and welcoming and his surgical coordinator has great follow through. I really appreciated her knowledge, pleasant personality and warmth as we made preparations for my surgery.
