This may be the worst run medical practice I've ever encountered. Never have I waited less than 1.5 hours to see Dr Hirschfeld. If you're bringing an elderly person to see the Dr, make sure they can sit for 2 hours. More important, Dr Hirschfeld has absolutely no patient-centered skills. You're lucky if she says hello to you. Don't expect an explanation of your condition, and don't expect to have a conversation of any kind. After 4 terrible experiences I've moved on.

My first appointment wasn't bad. I waited 45 minutes. Dr. Hirschfeld was very personable and knowledgeable. 2nd appointment, 2 hours, 15 minutes. No apology. 3rd appointment, 2 hours 15 minutes, I couldn't wait any longer. Told them why. She had an emergency. There was no emergency. I was sorry, but I couldn't wait any longer. There was no emergency.No phone call, no email. As though I never existed. Then a phone call saying I was overdue for an appointment. I will find another dr.

She is knowledgeable and explains everything very well. However, being kept waiting EVERY single appointment for over 90 minutes is not only disrespectful to the patient but shows the practice either doesn't care or is unable to properly manage their scheduling. I really do understand emergencies, however it is EVERY single visit.
