Dr. Michelle Hirsch has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Child Psychiatry
A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.

I went to see Dr Hirsch for an eating disorder in high school. Her answer was prozac! Now years later I'm still trying to recover from all the negative effects I experienced from this drug. This psychiatrist doesn't seem to have any understanding of the human psyche or any empathy; she just prescribes toxic mind altering drugs, and makes a fortune from doing so. Just say "no", kids.
This Dr was the worst... Was seen for eating disorder, and she kept piling on tutors instead of recommending dietitians. She was inappropriate with other professionals, and during sessions took calls from other patients and also personal phone calls. she was often very late for appointments, and prescribed medication that made my child ill . When we finally found appropriate care, we realized how much damage she had done.
I've been under Dr. Hirsch's care now for nearly 3 years and she has been a wonderful boon to my life. She is patient, caring and always available - she's so obviously gone above and beyond even when I had panic attacks on holidays, she would find a way to help me. She is very conscientious in asking questions about how I'm feeling in all areas of my life, and for the few periods when she placed me on medications we would always review constantly the dosage and try to reduce it over time. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Hirsch to absolutely anyone, and I'm lucky to have her.
My wife and I have been to a few Psychiatrists and I can tell you she is in a different class. She did more for my kid with excellent results in five days than when my kid spent 3+ weeks in and outpatient at a Psychiatric hospital.She was in communication almost on a daily basis with my kid and us wanting to know the details of the day, walking us through step by step and giving us explanation of the whys and what to do's.She is worth every penny.
