Patient Comments (1)
Grayslake, IL |
I am in my early 50s and have diabetic neuropathy. The office failed to send paperwork to The Secretary of State to renew my drivers license so the state sent me a letter that my license would be revoked. I called Dr. Hirshman and he said his office is short staffed and if I was so worried about my drivers license I should sell my car now and just call Uber. I have never received such an unprofessional remark from a health professional in my whole life. Avoid this office at all cost.
