Dr. Lawrence J Hirsch has the following 3 specialties
- Clinical Neurophysiology
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Showing 5 of 10
I have been a patient of Dr. Hirsch's for over 11 years. He is the most knowledgeable neurologist I have ever seen with the most caring and sincere intentions as a doctor. After seeing the "best" doctors, I switched to Dr. Hirsch who finally got my seizures under control and found an underlying cause of dizziness that no other doctors (with thousands of tests) could ever detect. I owe my health and better quality of life to Dr. Hirsch and his practice.
This is the worst neurologist that I have seen since I was diagnosed 20+ years ago. For nearly every appointment with him I need to leave 2 and a half to 3 hours as I know I will be waiting at least 2. During this time frame, I will speak with the nurse for 5 minutes, the P.A. for 5 minutes and if I am lucky I will get a whole 10 minutes of Dr. Hirsch's precious time. One day I was late for work, I was waiting for them to finish up with me, and I came out and found the doctor and P.A. having a cup of coffee and laughing. His most recent diagnosis is also a clear excuse not to have to give any thought to my case. Finally, getting an appointment with this doctor is an adventure. It must be scheduled three months in advance. I am currently in the process of searching for a new neurologist that accepts medicaid.
