Testimonials for Dr. Hirani
“I particularly appreciate Dr. Hirani’s attentive listening, which is something that I have not always experienced in encounters with members of her profession. Further, I’m impressed that her goal is to keep me well rather than fix me after I get sick!” - Tom
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hirani for over five years now, and she now sees my entire family and lots of my friends! I am always impressed by her breadth of knowledge and calm, engaging demeanor. When I’m in her office, she is concentrating only on me, and I never feel rushed or dismissed as I have with other physicians. Even though she is foremost a holistic practitioner, she doesn’t hesitate to utilize antibiotics or painkillers when the situation warrants them, but her expertise with natural hormones proved invaluable in helping me survive a miserable menopause. I feel very lucky to have found her!” – DS
“It would not be an exaggeration to say you have changed my life. Nine months ago I came to you suffering from insomnia, night sweats, and panic attacks so severe, they left my shirts drenched. Main stream medicine’s solution to the insomnia was Ambien, which made me sleep, but had serious side effects, and resulted in me still being tired after awakening. Today, thanks to your assistance, I am sleeping well, and wake up rested. My night sweats are almost non existent, and the panic attacks are gone. I feel better now, at age 63, than I have for over 6 years.” – JK
“I just don’t know what my life would be like if I hadn’t had the good fortune to have you in it. I met you at a crucial time in my life when in terms of my health I had hit a wall. My journey back began with you. Your generosity with your time and your clam and caring demeanor encouraged me to trust that you really care about me as an individual. Your knowledge of both traditional medicine and alternative medicine wisely guided me back to health and balance. Since I have been in your care I have learned about better eating, I have learn to listen to my body, and I have internalized good habits. I can never thank you enough.” – Anne
