March 30, 2020 2:04 PM

I was scheduled for a 6 month routine checkup with Dr Hersh. Due to the ongoing Covid -19 pandemic the office contacted me about canceling the appointment if I felt all was good. Because I was having a possible issue I asked if I could at least speak to Fr Hersh. Dr Hersh called me and we had a very good and thorough conversation over the phone. Based upon the information I was able to provide him he advised I wear a heart monitor for a month. He arranged for me to come in that afternoon to receive one.

August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

dr hersh is always helpful and explains thinks about my health over all lproblems.

July 23, 2018 7:00 PM

The biggest problem with all the providers at LGH is the problem of parking. I have to start one hour before my appointment time to insure being on time for my appointment. I only live 15 minutes away. Walking up the ramp from the parking lot across the street is a stress test all by it's self. I seldom find parking in the underground no matter what time my appointment is. If I use the valet parking, I have to walk the length of the hospital to get to my doctor's office. Very hard to do in my condition.

July 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Hersh is tough but he has my best interest at heart. everyone in this office is very nice and responsive.

July 1, 2018 7:00 PM

wait time too long

June 29, 2018 7:00 PM

very good service

June 25, 2018 7:00 PM

I see Dr. Hersh every 6 months. In addition to his examination he goes over all the medication and asks about other health issues such as my seeing a dermatologist and the last time a lot of confidence in him and appreciate all the time he takes with me.

June 11, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Hersh was the worst medical professional I have ever encountered in my life. He left the room 3 seperate times to take a phone call during my appointment, and answered a phone call on his personal phone in front of me. Mind you, this was not even from a number he knew, but a random telemarketer. On top of this, he said very discomforting things during the appointment, such as, "Although I consider myself close to God..." hyping up his own intelligence or medical expertise. He also asked, "So will you be donating your body to science after this?" because of my young age exhibiting heart problems. I hated everything about this visit, and his only response to all of my questions was that I was, "too young" to be exhibiting these symptoms. This was an appointment that easily could have happened over phone, or even voicemail, because he clearly did not listen to my concerns about my health, or at the very least did not address them. I wish I had not wasted my time and my parents money with visiting this doctor. I'm even getting a second opinion from a different doctor for the same condition, for this appointment went so badly. The fact that a professional this poor is even employed is appalling. Needless to say, I did not enjoy my appointment with Dr. Hersh.
