BECOME A PATIENT

Welcome to the Health by Heather Hirsch MD Collaborative.

Taking care of women is our passion, and we are now accepting patients into our private telemedicine practice founded by Dr. Heather Hirsch. Our clinicians have been personally trained by Dr. Hirsch and provide compassionate and state-of-the-art care.

Will we be getting more states? Working on it! Stay tuned by joining my email list.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to menopause, and plans can change as you do. Menopause is hard, but it doesn’t have to be that hard. Your visit comes with a complementary copy of Dr. Hirsch’s Menopause Masterclass.

Want to be seen in person? Dr. Hirsch is accepting new patients in her NYC office.

What is it like to have a Collaborative doctor?

The main principle that we use when we see patients is first – shared decision-making: After learning about your medical history, symptoms, health goals, and priorities we use shared decision-making to come up with a treatment plan of action. We don’t decide FOR YOU, you have the final say on your treatment plan! 

We also use your menopause type (or types) to help custom tailor your plan to the T. There is not a one-size fits all approach to menopause and plans can change as you do! 

FAQs

All your ‘hormonal havoc concerns” including; premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), perimenopause, Menopause, Post-menopause, hormone therapy, sexual health, and post-menopausal concerns like bone health, fatigue, and weight challenges.

How does it work? New patient visits are 60 minutes in length. After registering, you will receive an intake form to complete that we review prior to our visit. You will also receive a free copy of my course covering perimenopause and menopause right in your inbox. Together we decided on your diagnosis, order any necessary testing or lab work, and prescriptions (including HRT) can be sent to your local pharmacy. A lot of shared-decision making is done along the way. Also, we work right alongside your primary care doctor and gynecologist as needed.

We prescribe FDA-approved HRT that can be sent right to your local commercial pharmacy that is covered by your insurance!

We cannot serve as your primary care doctor. And if we are virtual, we cannot do pelvic exams, pap smears, or procedures unless you see Dr. Heather Hirsch in-person in her NYC office. However, your local doctors can certainly continue to help with these in-office tests.

New patient visits are 60 minutes in length. After registering, you will receive an intake form to complete that we review prior to your visit. You will also will receive a free copy of my course covering perimenopause and menopause right in your inbox. We often schedule follow-up visits in 2-3 months and we see you every 2-3 months until you feel amazing!

We use an electronic medical record system (called Avon Health). We can easily send copies of our visit, medications, and any other documents to your clinican to review.

We do not. However, you can easily access a superbill after your visit. This is essentially a medical receipt that you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement. You can also use an HSA if you have one to cover your visit.

Nope! Just here online and a few days in Manhattan!

Testimonials

Hear directly from patients

Amazing. It is such a relief to find a true expert in an area of health care that has historically and tragically been so overlooked. Peri and menopause are a big deal, mentally and physically, and it can take so so much from a woman’s life. The best money I have ever spent was booking the appointment with Dr. Hirsch.

Leanna S.

I am finally sleeping again, and my hot flashes have stopped, but I worry that I have too much estrogen, my chest is feeling a bit tender, like I’m 13 again and I am getting a small hormonal breakout like I did before I would get my period. In any case, I am in my 2nd month and I am hoping by the end of the 3rd month my issues will be leveling out.

Laurie W.

I feel I have a comprehensive understanding of menopause symptoms, research results and facts, and effective management strategies. I am confidently moving forward with a plan. Within 2 weeks of low-dosage hormone replacement therapy, I stopped having hot flashes. Dr. Hursch’s expertise and guidance have empowered me to navigate my menopause with confidence and grace.

Christy M.

I feel like I have someone who is knowledgeable in this area and who I can trust with safe and effective treatment of my symptoms. I also feel very validated in that Dr. Hirsch understands how difficult it has been to deal with my symptoms.

Leslie N.

I’m feeling hopeful! I’m excited to see how it goes when I start the treatment. I really appreciated the perfect balance between specific recommendations and being offered several potential approaches/options. In addition to receiving expert advice and guidance, I felt like a true partner in my care. I also appreciate Dr. Hirsch’s energy and enthusiasm for her work. It makes “treating a problem” feel more like simply taking positive action for better health.
