I met with this "pain specialist" and although he was patient and nice, he really didn't offer me any valid solution for my pain issues. I struggle with advanced OA and was told to take Pilates, get walking poles and try topical cream. I was very disappointed with his advice since I waited two years to see him. I have already taken yoga, have canes, and have tried every topical cream on the market. He told me I was not a candidate for any injections or blocks. He also told me to get a brace that was exactly the same as the brace I already had. He then told me not to wear the brace as it was atrophying my leg. So, I was confused. At the end of the meeting, I expressed my disappointment with a collegue of his, and the collegue told me not to loose hope. Dr. Hirsch was my last 'hope'. I was left the appointment hopeless and crying after I met him. Thankfully, I was able to see a new complex pain specialist at the Change Pain Clinic on Cambie, and the doctor there told me I WAS a candidate for injections and nerve blocks. There were also many other procedures that I was a candidate for. Dr. Hirsch never mentioned any of these procedures to me. I was at least expecting him to give me something worthwhile to go on, but he did not. I unfortunately did not have a positive experience with this doctor. He seemed very limited in his pain knowledge. I was even suggesting things to him.

I had tennis elbow and had already tried many non-invasive treatments. Dr. Hirsch listened, was empathic, and really worked hard to get to the bottom of my troubles!He asked I phoned after a treatment and even returned calls to the home! I am way better thanks to him!Thank you!

Very cold and rood. Does not listen to your complaints and details. Rushed through the consultation. I would not reccommend him.
