very understanding and reassuring !!
liked my visit and will be using him again.
I had an appointment over a month ago and still no results of my blood work. I have called the doctors office phone number and it says I need to call within business hours, even though it is in the hours stated.
excellent visit in every way, thank you!
I had arrived for my appointment with Dr. Hirschman about an hour early to fill out paperwork and I planned to wait. He was so kind and took me in right away. When collecting info from me, he definitely listened to my concerns and took the time to hear me out. He knew the second I walked in there I was nervous and calmed me down. Definitely a great doctor and person! The front staff is also very kind and helpful. I highly recommend!
Dr. Hirschman was exceptionally friendly and kind. He seemed very experienced as well. I felt very good about the care I received.
I am glad I found this doctor on Zocdoc. The whole experience was fantastic, the secretary Arlene is great and very careful in the way she deals with us, the patients. I had to do some tests and I did right there at the office. The doctor made sure to keep me calm and explaining the tests. I love it!
Dr. Hirschman and his medical assistant Arlene were a joy to be with during my annual physical - I really appreciated being seen right away and how friendly and efficient they both were. Also love that some of the blood work can be done in-house for instant feedback.
He was very nice and makes you feel comfortable
An excellent doctor, with a very friendly staff.
Great doctor (A+). Never had to wait for an appointment for more than 2 minutes over three years of seeing this guy. Highly recommend.
Dr. Hirschman was incredibly kind and spent a long time talking to me and asking lots of questions interspersed with personal stories of family and friends who have gone through similar experiences, which put me at ease. In addition to my physical health, he was very focused on my mental health and zeroed in right away on some of the issues I'm struggling with.
Dr. Hirschman is thorough and kind. Listens patiently. His nurse and office staff were super nice and efficient. Highly recommend.
I've been looking for a good Hematologist for awhile, and its safe to say that I found that with Dr. Hirschman.
Wonderful long time doctor. The best!
Very knowledgeable and thorough about hematology, explains a course of action to make the patient feel comfortable.
He very caring and knowledgeable.
In tune and caring. Professional and amazing all around.
I was super nervous but the ladies at the front desk were very sweet and helpful. I didn't have to wait at all to see the dr he's a really nice guy and dies his job very well.
Dr. Hirschman is pleasant and knowledgeable. He was able to quickly determine exactly what specialists were for me and gave me options with respect to treatments. His office assistant and nurse are also very courteous, professional, and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Hirschman's office.
Dr. Hirschman was very professional and made the check-up feel perfectly comfortable. Something to keep in mind is that they don't publish test results online but they were extremely prompt to fax them/mail them. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hirschman in the area!

Such a lovely man and lovely staff. Really warm and attentive. Makes the whole process smooth and quick. Good accessible location with good hours. I am so glad I found this practice. I can't imagine going to another. Thanks!!
This guy is great. Very good bedside manner. Great personality, too!
I arrived ten minutes late due to train delays, but was still seen immediately. The doctor was extremely kind and informative. He made me feel comfortable and answered any questions I had. Highly recommend him and his staff, who were also very friendly!
He's quick and to the point which is great but can also feel a little rushed. I'll definitely be going back, but check ups are a breeze.
A most excellent mensch.
Dr. Hirschman is the best doctor I've ever gone to see. Sounds like an exaggeration, but I can't recommend him enough. Amicable, knowledgable, experienced.
The visist was warm, friendly, and quick'
Great doctor and amazing staff. Highly recommend.
Very friendly, knowledgeable doctor who referred me to a GI for procedure. He only did a blood test because of anemia. The office charged me a small copay for blood work. I was there in August. In January of the following year I received a bill from Shiel Laboratory for a lot of money - the didn't have the right insurance info. I gave it to them and they sent another bill, this time for a small co-pay. Two months later I get another bill for random small amount. I call them about it and they say I am paid in full and should ignore the bill. I almost expect to receive another bill in a random amount in a couple of months. Something fishy is going on with Shiel. I have never had an issue like this with Quest Diagnostics. So just be sure to tell the doctor's office which lab they should use and don't take for granted they will pass on your insurance information correctly.
Typical old school no nonsense New York Doctor. Richard was exactly what I expected and exactly the type of doctor I wanted to see.
Very throrough and a pleasant Dr.
Dr. Hirschman and the nurses were all very friendly and helpful. Almost no wait time, would definitely recommend him to other patients.

Right on time and great bedside manner, everything I was looking for in our visit.

Great doctor, great staff! It was a very comfortable visit.
Visit was great. I can see why he's consider one of the best. He reminds me of my doctors growing up... Old school and to the point.
Great visit! I would highly recommend Dr. Hirschman. I have terrible white coat hypertension, but Dr. Hirschman made me feel at ease. He is both personable and professional, and his staff couldn't be nicer. He definitely deserves a 5-star rating.
Amazing doctor. Very caring and personable. The physical was extremely quick - he saw me immediately and his staff was very friendly.
Dr. Hirschman was very nice and I had a very pleasant visit. His staff were very friendly too and I was in-and-out of my physical in less than 30 minutes.
Great staff and doctor. Easy, professional, fast. Highly recommend. And very accommodating after passing out giving blood. Thanks!!
Incredibly nice doctor and staff. As a new patient he spent a great deal of time with me going over my medical history and my exam.
Dr. Hirshman is a true professional. He really cares about his patients and treats us as humans and not just a number. Through my entire illness and followups, he has always made me feel at ease. Definitely would recommend him!!!!
I'm male at a high risk age for testicular cancer, but he did not conduct a testicular exam. I found this very strange. I've had a testicular exam at every other physical I can remember.
Great visit - very professional, friendly, thorough, felt comfortable and in good hands.
Very kind. Great Doctor.
Love this guy. Funny and smart. Felt right at home.
Dr. Hirschman was great.
Great doctor. Very thorough. I enjoyed his knowledge as well as personality in the office. The office staff is also very helpful and accommodating. It is a refreshing experience to get to an appointment and see the doctor within a reasonable amount of time; other offices have little to no regard for your time and make you sit to see the doctor.
Very nice doctor. Virtually no wait in the "waiting room". Very professional. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Hirschman and his staff were very nice; they made me feel very comfortable. He had a very good demeanor and was very knowledgeable about my medical situation.
Dr. Hirschman not only has a great bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable, but he really knows his stuff. He is an excellent doctor. I highly recommend him.
The doctor and staff were incredible friendly and helpful. There was essentially no wait time. He has a very comforting bedside manner. Highly recommended
Could not be more pleased with Dr. Hirschman. He was thorough, took his time to answer all my questions, at no time did i feel rushed or was made to feel that any of my questions were silly or insignificant. He explained things in a way that were easy to understand and soothed a lot of my concerns. Both the doctor & his nurse were incredibly nice. When they realized the lab they had recommended didn't take my insurance, his nurse took the time to find one that did & gave me all their info. I highly recommend Dr. Hirschman to anyone who is searching for doctor.
Had a short wait because the office was full. He seems to know his stuff. A bit aggressive but overall seems to be a good doctor. The Nurse that took my blood was wonderful. My veins are super tiny and it is usually a problem for other nurses to draw my blood, but she got it right the first time and she was very understanding and kind
Dr. Hirschman took the time to answer all my questions, I did not feel rushed. He is very professional yet friendly. His staff is courteous and attentive, they checked me in as soon as I walked in. My search for a primary care physician is finally over!
Excellent friendly staff, made me feel right at ease. Was seen very promptly and was finished in less than a hour door to door which was perfect since I went on a lunch break. Very amiable doctor.
Both Dr. Hirschman and the nurse were very polite. I was taken care of right away and will return for any future health issues.
Prior Military - I hate the doc. Doc hirschman was funny, personable, and efficient. Can't ask for much more than thatQ
Very friendly and engaging Doctor. The practice looks a bit outdated and had an informal ambiance that didn't bother me because over the years I learned that stuffiness doesn't necessarily come with professionalism. It was a very pleasant first experience. I have a feeling my 5 year long (not so intensive) search for a PCP might be over.
Excellent experience. Blood work done on site and takes only a couple of minutes. Doctor took time to explain things.
Dr. Hirschman and his staff are amazing!! Its rare to find a doctor who will actually sit and have a laugh with you.
Very experienced and knowledgeable, the best MD/PCP in the city!
Good and friendly staff.
Dr Hirschman proved to be experienced and professional with great bedside manor. The offices are not fancy, but that is not important. Since he is an oncologist, blood work is very quick which is an added bonus. I highly recommend both him and his staff, who were quick and friendly.
this is by far the best Dr. and Nurse combo i have ever been too! since he is a Hematologist and Oncologist, some blood work comes back immediately. imagine instant feedback that you are ok. He is extremely experienced and so is his Nurse, it's the first time in my life that i look forward to my next Drs visit. you are in great hands with this office!
I thought he was excellent. And his staff was so pleasant, which was an added perk!! Highly recommend!
