I have been a patient of Dr. Fishman for years. I always see him and he always spends as much time as I need. I can reach him by phone if I have any problems and he always returns my calls within hours. I have and continue to refer people to him. A specialist that actually listens to you.

He is like a dad or uncle to me. Been seeing him for over a decade. He is warm and kind, very experienced and knowledgeable. He genuinely cares about his patients. I would absolutely recommend him!
