Specialties

Dr. Scott Hirsch has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    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.

  • Neurology

    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.

Hot and cold

He can be friendly but lacks warmth and a sense of compassion. I don't feel like he really listens, it's like he had an idea, makes up his mind, and that's it. He doesn't seem to want to do any research on cases that don't fit a mold. Unfortunately that seems to be pretty common.

One Star

I find Dr Hirsch very professional. He was able to control my mother's condition by stripping away all medications and starting from the ground level. No other doctor was able to do that. I found him to be very caring.

Bipolar is hard. Finding the right doctor—Invaluable.

I've been under Dr. Hirsch's care for six (6) years. I have bipolar disorder. Today I am doing well—I am working, I am loving, I am not fighting, I am not angry, I am not crying every day... Dr. Hirsch works with me when making decisions on medication. And when I talk he listens. He sugarcoats nothing when telling me what I need to do moving forward. He's direct. For patients who have mental illness and often can't trust their own thoughts, his approach is invaluable.
