Am I a good fit for working with Dr. Hirsch?2018-11-06T20:22:44+00:00

Beyond the symptoms you are dealing with, the 3 most important things that I look for in a client are:

  • You are committed. You will stop at nothing to get better.
  • You are coachable. You will follow the recommendations I make and the treatment plan I create.
  • You are resourceful.  As obstacles present themselves, you will navigate around them.
How do I schedule an appointment with Dr. Evan?2019-03-28T05:00:34+00:00

Dr. Evan does not accept everyone as a new client. We require you to apply by filling out a questionnaire  and based on your answers, you will be directed to some of our programs or to a discovery call with Dr. Evan. On this call, Dr. Evan will determine if we’re a good fit.

Once you have been accepted, you will be prompted to click on a link to get started as a new client. You will be guided through the process of setting up your account, logging into the secure online client portal, filling out your new client paperwork, and scheduling your first appointment. For your convenience, this is all taken care of online, but you will be given the contact information for our office at the beginning of the process, in case you have questions or need assistance.

What is unique about Dr. Evan’s approach?2018-11-06T20:33:02+00:00

If you’re like most of our clients, you’ve seen 10 to 30 doctors trying to get well. So why is this experience with Dr. Evan going to be different?

Dr. Evan has found that the problem is that most people with fatigue are looking for the right treatment when they should be looking for the right causes. Dr. Evan has found that there are 15 different causes of chronic fatigue and everyone has multiple causes. To complicate things further, everyone has different multiple causes. This is why there is no one treatment that works for everyone and the reason why it is essential that all of your causes of fatigue are found and treated.

Unfortunately, conventional doctors, natural doctors, and even functional medicine doctors don’t address all of these causes! They either specialize on one of these causes – like Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Leaky Gut, Thyroid Disease or Adrenal Dysfunction – or they are generalists and don’t have the experience to appropriately treat chronic fatigue.

And that was Dr. Evan’s story… he had almost every cause of fatigue for 5 years and didn’t know it when he started his health journey. He would get a little bit better with each cause that he treated, but it was only after finding all of the causes and treating them that he truly found the resolution to his fatigue. And this is what he sees over and over again in his clients. This is why he developed the Fix Your Fatigue Program — to help you figure out exactly what your causes are and how to reverse them. This program is the exact formula that he has used in his clinic to help thousands of people resolve their fatigue.

What type of things are used with Dr. Evan’s protocols?2018-06-08T21:35:32+00:00

Lifestyle changes (food, movement, sleep, water), nutritional supplements, herbs, technologies (like saunas) and more.

What is Dr. Evan’s philosophy about lab tests?2019-03-29T02:16:34+00:00

We believe in the value of laboratory testing, but always in combination with all of the data available. This includes laboratory tests, your subjective experience, and a visual exam.  Our goal is to leave no stone unturned. To make sure that we find all of the causes of your fatigue. This is the only way to resolve it.
