Dr. Fishman performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. I was very concerned about the surgery and choose Dr. Fishman based on the high recommendation he received from a very good friend. Dr. Fishman made me feel comfortable about his methods and the procedure in general. Then there is Dr Fishman's personal assistant, Easter, who is extremely knowledgeable and personable; and guided me through the whole process. Thank you Dr Fishman.

Dr Arthur M Fishman MD was recommended buy my doctor as the best in his field. I I trusted my eyesight in his hands which I am glad that I did. From day one his staff treated me as if I was family. Every step was explained in detailed and the time there was devoted to my every question and need. Transportation for my wife and I to and back from my home was taken care at no charge to the surgery center. At the surgery center I saw the latest equipment and the the total caring staff I was happy.

I can not believe my good fortune! After suffering from cataracts and poor eyesight, my primary doctor recommended Dr. Fishman. What a blessing. I can attest that Dr. Fishman is the best in his field and his staff is superb. You can't find a more competent group - from the receptionist to the surgery coordinator. While speaking to other patients in the waiting room, I find they also had the same experience. Not only is my eyesight immensely better the care I received was outstanding!

I highly recommend Dr. Fishman as I recently had cataract surgery. His professional staff is couretous and efficient. My vision was 20/25 the day after surgery. They scheduled the surgery & follow up visits at ,the times I requested . The staff at the Surgery center of Weston was very efficient.

I am a terrible eye patient & needed cataract surgery. Dr Fishman's prestigious education & professional background aside, I felt immediate trust; he is kind & empathetic, & took extra time with me. After he explained the surgery & lens options, ALL MY FEARS GONE ! Post 2 procedures, literally, I am liberated with vision I did not know was possible; "20-20" with Technis Intraocular Lenses! The Doctor, Surgery, Staff & Office follow up (everything) WAS MORE THAN PERFECT from start to finish.

The office is like a factory. Dr. Fishman is like a robot. Getting in tough with him was nearly impossible.
