As another person said he is like Dr. Kid. If someone's in upper 20's you shouldn't be afraid to say true definitions of words. I'm not a 6 year old. He also underestimates and wants to diagnose you immediately. Things should always be thought over. I also agree that money is all he wants. One thing is as a psychologist or.psychitrst you should not bring your wife and experience in conversation. I even corrected him on medical terms. To me it's his way or the highway.

Very attentive and the only Doctor able to address my health concerns correctly with immediate attention and care. I don't know where I'd be without his spot on help.

Dr. Hirsch is an absolutely great doctor and I would recommend him to any one!! He has helped me so much. Also, it is easy to reach him by phone or email---he always gets back very quickly. The fact that he is both a neurologist and psychiatrist is a big plus.

I've been under Dr. Hirsch's care for six (6) years. I have bipolar disorder. Today I am doing well?I am working, I am loving, I am not fighting, I am not angry, I am not crying every day... Dr. Hirsch works with me when making decisions on medication. And when I talk he listens. He sugarcoats nothing when telling me what I need to do moving forward. He's direct. For patients who have mental illness and often can't trust their own thoughts, his approach is invaluable.
