Eugene H. Hirsh, M.D.

It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from the practice of medicine effective December 31, 2017. The past 37 1/2 years have been fascinating, exhilarating and fulfilling. It has been a privilege to have worked with you and an honor to have earned your trust. I will miss the doctor-patient relationships, which in many cases have spanned over generations in my patient families. The tasks of a physician are humbling, and I am grateful.

As I look ahead to the next phase of my life, including time with family, friends and fishing, please be assured that my colleagues and our excellent staff at Gastroenterology Consultants, P.C. will continue to provide exemplary care.

Dr. Alan Fixelle and Dr. Bruce Salzberg will be assuming responsibility for both my existing patients, as well as welcoming new referrals at our Emory Saint Joseph's location.

Dr. Melvin Bullock will provide patient care at the Smyrna office.

My professional career has been a gratifyingly, long and winding road. I hope that the best is yet to come for each of us.

With heartfelt appreciation,

Eugene M. Hirsh, M.D.
