Had a colonoscopy. Visit was quick professional and a polite as can be in what is an uncomfortable procedure. Dr. Fishbein did a good job explaining what to expect during the procedure (not much I was knocked out) and what they are looking for. The anesthesiologist was pleasant to talk with again great at explaining what to expect, and had me knocked out before I knew it. Nurse before / after and during, were all professional and made a person at ease in what can be an uncomfortable setting.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Fishbein for years now. She recently had to undergo an endoscopy. As usual, Dr. Fishbein met with us beforehand, discussed her situation and explained everything that would happen during the exam. On exam day, he greeted us, put my wife at ease, and, post-exam, revealed the results. He has a great bedside manner that reflects his care for patients. His staff was friendly and helpful as well. We highly recommend him.

I've found Dr. Fishbein to be very thorough and responsive and I have a very high level of confidence in his competence. I will continue to consult with him and highly recommend him to others who may need specialized care for GI issues.

The facility did in fact observe the Covid-19 protocols recommended by the CDC. The nurses and staff went above and beyond the call of duty to help make the visit as comfortable as possible. Dr. Fishbein was thorough and professional. I felt safe and confident that I was receiving compassionate care.

Complete and utter garbage staff!!! I scheduled out a month in advance to take off work for an apt with this doctor. Trying to get a new gi because my wife and I moved and they canceled on me the day of my appointment!!!!!!! They claimed I had seen a gi doctor recently and I had not. They said the doctor doesn't do second opinions, like I'm some train wreck going from gi doctor to gi doctor. I don't know what else to say, but doing business like this makes me wonder how your in business at all.

I saw Dr. Fishbein yesterday for a endoscopy. Everyone I met during my visit was awesome. From the receptionist (I wish I knew her name), the nurses--Jenna, Mary and Sharon, the anesthesiologist, Dr. Thomas, and of course, Dr. Fishbein, everyone was kind and professional. They all made you feel at ease. They explained everything thoroughly and answered every question I had. They are quite efficient too. I was in and out in less than two hours, but never felt rushed. If you are looking for a gastroenterologist, I highly recommend Dr. Fishbein and his team.

He makes you feel at ease and answers any questions you may have. The office and his team are also professional with his practice genuinley established. You are not just a lost number in a big place.

This was my first experience. I have never needed anesthesia in my life. I was very anxious over the procedure. The staff was so caring, they eased my nerves and sure enough, the procedure was over before I knew it, and I was back up and running. It was a pleasant experience that I now have no reservations about repeating as necessary.

Had an upper GI and colonoscopy at the Anne Arundel Digestive Center this week that went well with no complications. Procedures were performed by Dr. David Fishbein and the staff at the center. Staff was very attentive and made sure I was well taken care of during and after the procedures. A follow up call was made the following morning to once again insure I had no issues resulting from the procedures. Several days later I received an email from Dr. Fishbein that detailed the results of the tests. I highly recommend this facility and associated Doctors, Nurses and support staff for gastroenterology related tests and procedures.

I commend Dtr Fishbein, Dtr Thomas and assistants, for their caring, comforting professionalism, while successfully administering the medical procedure and practicing excellent safe COVID19 regulatory standards . Dtr Fishbein and associates have an excellent check-in-balance system in place, ensuring they had a thorough understanding of my prescriptions, and medical/family history before expediting. He conducted an exam prior to the procedure, explaining the procedure from beginning to ending in recovery. Dtr Thomas (anesthesiologist) explained his role and how he would regulate the anesthesia during the procedure. Additionally the technicians explained their roles with care. I really felt at home, relaxed and knew I was in good hands; and was not disappointed .
