Patient Testimonials

Been a long time patient of Dr Hirt. He is an exceptional doctor with interpersonal second to none. I would highly recommend him to family and friends alike. —Lee H.

I initially started seeing Dr. Hirt because the location was near my residence, but the quality of care is so good that even after the practice moved outside of my residential area I was willing to travel further in order to remain a patient. This is the best place for eye care I have ever been to. Everyone from the doctor to his staff are courteous and caring.  My son and I both enjoy Dr. Hirt's animated personality! —Sharon F.

I did a search on the web for eye doctor- Dr.Hirt’s name came up.  Also my fiancee told me he went to school with him at OSU- used to see him all the time in the library studying. —Angelique

Dr Hirt does not rush and actually listens to my comments.  He asks questions and engages in my overall health care.  —Ann K.

We have been seeing Dr. Hirt for 15 years. I wouldn't entrust the care of my eyes or my kids' eyes to anyone else! —Heather B.

Initially went to Dr Hirt because his office was right across the street from us. And then because Dr. Hirt has always been very kind, and his staff is very helpful and friendly. —Rebecca R.

Been seeing him for years and have referred many people to him.  He is awesome to work with. —Christian J.

I was a patient of Dr. Peach; Dr. Hirt absorbed patients. Dr. Hirt is an awesome doctor, I really like the personal care he offers.
