Dr. Hirschberg’s areas of interest include orthopedics, ophthalmology, dermatology, and low level laser therapy. He is a recognized authority on photomedicine and its application in companion animal medicine. His treatment protocols are published in Thor Photomedicine’s veterinary treatment manual, and his speaking engagements have included WALT (World Association of Laser Therapy) and NAALT (North American Association of Laser Therapy). Outside the hospital Dr. Hirschberg enjoys sailing, rock climbing and tinkering with sports cars. Having to choose between a partner allergic to cats or cats, Dr. Hirschberg chose the human. However, he has had a long term relationship with Irish Setters and you will most often find him with a red dog at his side.
