Very thorough. Have maximum confidence in Dr. Fishbein, so much so that after we moved 60 miles away 18 years ago, I still come to him for G.I. needs. He has been my G.I specialist for many years, .

Though the prep has gotten much better I still don't look forward to it. I know the colonoscopy is important to do and do feel I get the best of care with Dr Fishbein. I will see you again in 2022. The email reminder and phone calls were very helpful.

Dr. Fishbein asks questions, listens intently, discusses in detail the testing required for diagnosis, responds to patient as soon as he receives results then recommends treatment. He is pleasant while doing all of this. A definite "bedside manner."
in Severn, MD |
Dr. Fisbein's staff provides a professional, upbeat attitude. They provide responses to questions and continually check on the state of wellness before and following the procedure. Information provided by the Doctor in preparation for the procedure and the post procedure is reassuring.

For a colonoscopy, it was a "pleasant" experience. Staff members introduced themselves and explained what would be happening and what their role was. Dr. Fishbein welcomed any questions I might have. The anesthesiologist was great; there was no awkward waiting for the anesthesia to take effect. I awoke after an hour's sleep and got immediate feedback from Dr. Fishbein on the procedure. I plan to do it again in five years.

Dr. Fishbein and his staff are, by far, the most professional and caring that I have ever experienced. I have been a patient of Dr. Fishbein for many years and have always been happy with his expertise, professionalism, and caring manner. When I come for an office visit, he never rushes and seems genuinely interested in what I am telling him. The procedures of colonoscopy and/or endoscopy that I have experienced were not awful due to his and his staff's caring manner and expertise.

Dr Fishbein and his entire staff were wonderful and professional in every step of the way from the initial prep information,...up to, and including the actual procedure of a first time colonoscopy.I was initially hesitant to have taken the referal for Dr Fishbein because I was not satisfied at all with the ''primary''doctor who had recommended Dr Fishbein,....but,....I am thankful that I took the leap of faith and went to see him.Thank you and your staff Dr Fishbein.

No one enjoys a colonoscopy, but Dr. Fishbein makes it as easy as possible. He spends enough time with you both before and after the procedure so that you know what to expect and understand the results.

Very pleased with Dr. Fishbein. I waited to long to come for exam. I figured I had stress related problems since my wife's illness beginning in 2014. When my Hemoglobin level was down that triggered me to search for answers. I figured I may have blood in stool but not sure. Any way all staff that worked with Dr. Fishbein are excellent and caring. At this point I thought maybe I have Cancer. So come to find out I did not. Thanks to every one in his staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fishbeins for many years. He is a caring and gentle doctor. He listens to your problems and is very thorough in his explanation of treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Fishbein as a gastroenterologist.
in Pasadena, MD |
If all doctors were as knowledgeable and understanding as Dr. Fishbein, more people would get their routine exams done (especially in this field) and take better care of themselves. I always recommend Dr. Fishbein to anyone looking for a great doctor. I always hear great things about Dr. Fishbein from other medical practitioners in various other fields and that is the greatest recommendation of all!

I was so impressed when I first met Dr. Fishbein. He is so kind, caring and very professional. He listened to all of my concerns and questions without making me feel like i was asking dumb questions.
