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 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!

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.
