About Me

As an internist at Ohio State, I specialize in women’s health. I’m extremely passionate about taking care of women from young adulthood through the rest of their lives. In particular, I specialize in contraceptive counseling, menopause, peri-menopause, osteoporosis, hypo-active sexual desire disorder/low libido, medical management of urinary incontinence, abnormal bleeding, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), recurrent UTIs, painful intercourse, treatment of vaginal infections and follow-ups with breast cancer survivors.

I believe that every one of my patients has a unique patient profile and background. This allows me to truly create the very best individualized treatment plan that I tailor specifically to my patients’ health needs and goals.

My favorite part about working here at Ohio State is the excellent medical care that we are able to provide our patients, as well as the rich learning and teaching environment.

In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors and relaxing with my family. I also enjoy exercising and ran the Boston Marathon in 2009. I hope to go back to compete again someday!

Dr. Hirsch is very courteous, attentive, empathetic, and highly knowledgeable. She asked a lot of questions about my concerns and symptoms and updated my family history information as I provided it. She provided feedback on certain things I had concerns about and clearly explained all the tests I would undergo and why. She also explained the next steps to include a follow-up appointment to check on my progress. Once my tests started coming through (I accessed them on MyChart), she provided notes on any that were flagged and explained the next steps. I had follow-up questions that I submitted via MyChart and she responded to some and directed the others to a Nurse Practitioner who provided me with the information I asked for.
