Ratings for Dr. Larry S. Hirsch
Dr. Hirsch saved my life. I was diagnosed with endometrial carcinoma, and in a 7 1/2 hour surgery(completely bloodless, no transfusions necessary)I was back to normal in 3 weeks! I even did some tile-setting on the 21st day after surgery. Dr. Hirsch is, in my opinion, an eccentric genius. His manner can be occasionally abrupt, but I would rather have an abrupt genius gynocologist/surgeon than a smooth-talking doctor who is medically not up to par. During examinations, Dr. Hirsch and I have discussed everything from the Homestead Act of 1862 to the ancient Sumarians. He is an interesting person in addition to being an outstanding doctor.
Horrible doctor. He was rude. Didn't answer my calls when I had a high fever when pregnant. Disasterous delivery. Didn't come see me in the hospital to check me after the delivery and instead called and informed me I could remove my own bandages (c-section). In a post partum appt. he told me I needed to make sure to start having sex with my husband again (I didn't bring it up as it was not an issue) as my husband needed this. I thought he was MY doctor? He could be nice sometimes and rude and inconsiderate others. Ask a nurse about him. . .
Over 9 years ago Dr. Hirsch was my doctor, he helped my husband and I with getting me pregnant with our daughter.I had problems conceiving and he was there for us every step of the way.Dr. Hirsch also helped us with insurance stuff, that he didn't have to involve himself with.He was great and helpful at all times. Sometimes his humor went over my head, but I didn't mind. I wasn't there for his humor. Sometimes he could be to honest and come out of no where with stuff you don't want to hear. But, give him a chance. He's very smart and knows what he's doing! I wish I could have him as my doctor again!
After he told me I didn't need my ovaries anymore and should just yank them out, I left. There was nothing the matter with them, so I don't understand his attitude. Also, he prescribed standard hormones (not bioidentical)which increases risk of cancer. I felt I could get better advice elsewhere. I also think he was creepy!
