Another former patient that misses her

I was referred to Dr. Hirsch a couple years before she left OH an am grateful for her podcasts. In my mid 50’s I was overwhelmed by how much I didn’t know about menopause let alone all the women’s health issues that preceded that. Her clear explanations in her podcasts are a must listen as there is never enough time at any office visit. I have recommended Dr. Hirsch’s podcasts to my 20 something daughter and she listens to those relevant to her. I appreciate Dr. Hirsch’s genuineness, honesty and transparency.

Great podcast: holistic patient-centered perspective

Full disclosure- I was lucky to have had Dr Hirsch as my physician/health coach. I miss her!

Although I no longer see her at my annual appointments, I still am able to soak up her health education information by listening to her podcasts.

Helpful and straightforward

Dr. Hirsch shares helpful information in a straightforward manner. I wish there were more doctors like Dr. Hirsch.
