    Dr. Fishman has been treating my wife, coping with Stage 4 colon cancer, since early 2018. In the past 2 1/2 years she has been to his clinic over 40 times. Through this period there have been three hospitalizations and three different crisis points that involved his calling on and coordinating with other specialists in order to stabilize her and, as appropriate, attack the cancer. In one case, his advice that I take her to the ER immediately prevented her dying on the spot. Through it all he has answered every question, been positive, and added quality years to her life. You cannot ask for more. This is a first-rate doctor. As for the fellow complaining about office efficiency, what a remarkable complaint during a global pandemic!

    His office is pretty useless to contact---you need to wade through multiple levels of automated instructions, then you end up with an answering machine. Fishman himself is very poor in returning calls or letting you know results. I won't go back.

    Dr. Fishman is a very skilled Oncologist, up to date on the most recent development in the cancer field. He is strong in collaborating with others as needed and his advice is always on point and thoughtful. Most importantly though he posesses the highest degree of integrity and compassion a patient could ask for. We are fortunate to have him in charge of our care.

    Dr Fishman treated my multiple myeloma. He provided comprehensive, caring treatment. He was always available and provided sound technical guidance through the process. He coordinated with Dana Farber Cancer Institute & Brigham Women & Children's Hospital for my stem cell transplant. I would recommend him without reservation.

    Dr. Fishman is extremely qualified, competent, takes time to carefully explain things and really can be trusted to give a patient the best care available. He remains current in the latest treatment options and gives patients' a role in deciding the best course for each one. I owe him my life and think he is outstanding.

    A wonderful doctor with excellent experience. He truly cares about his patients and takes the time to listen to their concerns and questions. I wouldn't entrust my cancer care to anyone else. He saved my life. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.
