Dr. Fischkoff is soft spoken and attentive. I felt he listened to everything I had to say, gave me short and long term advice, asked if I had any questions and went out of his way to accomodate my fear of needles. He is excellent and if you're having arthritis pain, he'll do all he can to help you.

Worst doctor I have ever visited, appointment felt very rushed and he seemed so disinterested and disengaged that it was almost sad. Only had medications as recommendations and did not seem at all sympathetic or that he even wanted to be there. Looks like this doctor truly hates his job and answering questions. Will never be returning to this awful office.
in Hightstown, NJ |
Just had a follow up visit. First, Dr. Fischkoff returned my phone call on Saturday. Within 5 minutes of my leaving a message with his service. Really impressed. When the urgent care facility could not take care of me, I iced my elbow and waited until Monday morning. Called his office and had an appointment for 12:30 same day. Was seen promptly and was done with procedure by 1:15. Extremely impressed with the staff at the Toms River Office - superior to the Freehold office.
