      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
