Office staff was amazing! Tech that did my initial in take was patient with all my questions and explained everything thoroughly. Front desk team and glasses specialist were spot on helping me pick out new lenses. The office is high tech, organized and uber professional. Dr Hirachfeld is clearly an expert in his field. He was efficient and direct, but not necessarily warm and fuzzy. Felt a little rushed and some explainations came via video rather the Dr himself. I would however 100% recco the practice as a whole!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hirschfeld since 2008. Since then, I've seen him about 4 times a year for follow up appointments. Dr. Hirschfeld's knowledge, caring demeanor, and successful treatments have put my mind at ease. I can honestly say that there’s no other eye care specialist I’d rather trust with my vision. Dr. Hirschfeld takes a true interest in my well being and always takes the time to answer any questions and discuss treatment options so I fully understand the details. I never feel rushed and I never leave there feeling something was not covered or “missed.” Everyone on his staff is always courteous and very professional. As an aviation professional, my career depends on my vision. Dr. Hirschfeld has helped tremendously with ensuring the longevity of my career and more importantly, my vision.

After each visit with Dr. Hirschfeld, I thank the powers that be for my good fortune. I had been seeing a variety of ophthalmologists since I was in second grade. The search for the right fit ended 8 years ago after my first experience with Dr. Hirschfeld. When it comes to vision, I have issues that are not properly addressed at a drive-through eye examination group. Dr. Hirschfeld makes the right call time-and-time again, adjusting prescription strength, exposing me to lenses that are right for me (and not some product he's hawking), and counseling me on maintenance procedures. What sets "Dr. James" apart is that he is a highly educated individual, but never speaks down or patronizes folks who may not have had the opportunity to obtain the standing in academia he has achieved. When I ask questions, I get direct and accessible answers that do not contain the patronizing upsell. It is without reservation that I recommend Dr. Hirschfeld to anyone in search of the Holy Grail of ophthalmological service.

Dr. Hirschfeld is probably the best doctor I've ever had. He truly cares about my health. His staff is also extremely professional, they are very flexible with my limited schedule, and are friendly on the phone and in person. I have, and will continue to recommend Dr. Hirschfeld to my family and friends.

Dr. Hirschfeld saw my son on a Sunday night (at 9:45pm) in the office for an emergency. He also had us follow up the first thing the next morning to assess him once again. So glad he was on call that night! He's been our ophthalmologist for years and we've been very happy with his care.

I cancelled my follow up visit and will find another doctor. I sat in the exam room for 30 minutes after the nurse took all my information. My instincts told me to leave the office, I wished I had listened. The doctor's manner was kurt, he took no interest in me as a person. I was scared by his comments during the visit, and he dismissed my comments. The visit was not worth the emotional toll it took on me and I will be looking for another eye doctor.

Dr. Hirschfeld has a really nice office, great staff and provided great care. Additionally, they have a well stocked optical center. I had a complete a eye exam, saw a video on my eye "condition" and ordered a pair of sunglasses all within an hour. Great office. I highly recommend.
