Welcome to my Website

I’m Dr. Marc Hirsh. I came to Hanover in 1989 when there were no medical cancer specialists in this area.  Since then I have dedicated my life to providing quality oncology care to this community.

I grew up in and around New York City and then went to college at Johns Hopkins. After medical school, I became an internal medicine specialist and then volunteered for the National Health Service Corps for seven years in rural Virginia as the only physician in about a 20-mile radius. While caring for cancer patients in my practice there, I felt called to become an oncologist and went back into training at Hershey Medical Center before moving to Hanover.

My staff presently includes three oncology nurses, a certified pharmacy technician, four medical assistants, a billing/financial specialist and a patient advocate, who provides emotional and spiritual support. Last, but not least, our office dog “Jake” provides pet “therapy” every day. I believe my staff is of the highest quality and extremely dedicated to helping you, the cancer patient and your caregivers.

As of May 1, 2018, we are no longer accepting new patients.
