Marshall Hirshman, M.D.

" I have practiced ophthalmology for over 45 years and have been joined by partners with increased training, as well as expertise in the latest technology and state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic equipment. I believe in comprehensive eye care, blending medical and surgical diagnosis and treatment. My philosophy is that the patient should participate in their care and decision making. I look forward to discussing all aspects of your eye care. "
