    Northbrook, IL |
    Dr. Fishman was rude and condescending. She told me my daughter "was faking it" and did not finish the eye exam.
    It is impossible to please every patient/family. I called this family as soon as we realized that they had left upset while dilating and attempted to have them return to finish the exam. Speaking with the parent, I explained I was sad they disagreed with how I explained "faking it" to them (I initially did this with the mother without the child present). Usually my parents are quite relieved to learn that their child has a thorough healthy eye exam and no need for further work up or glasses.

    I was referred to Dr Fishman by my sister whose son had lazy eye and I have been seeing Dr. Fishman for over 2 years now for my 5 yr old who has lazy eye and cross eyes. She has been great at every appointment and my son's eyes are improving. She has a unique skill to see what the kids see and help make their treatments and prescriptions to help improve their eye sight.
