Dr. Fleishman did a cataract surgery on me that has long since proven that I didn't need and as she said that the cataracts in both my eyes were equal and I don't have any in the right eye ( Per a very good physician that was appalled that surgery was done on me) and then 2 more doctors stating that there isn't a cataract in my right eye. The vision in my left eye is basically ghosting and I am legally blind in it after her surgery. She takes no responsibility. Stay away

After suing Dr. Fleishman in NYS court to recoup my out of pocket expenses due to two failed routine cataract related surgeries she performed on my same eye, my faith in doctors and the legal system has dwindled away. Her first surgery resulted in lost of sight. Her second surgery to my same eye resulted in ghosting vision for one year until I went to another MD. Her lawyer's defense was that I signed the consent to have the surgery. I found Fleishman untruthful,egocentric & Avaricious.

Dr. Fleishman and staff are a very professional group. My surgery and exams were made comfortable by the friendly staff.

I came to dr. Fleishman with a problem that I have had for ages (severe headaches/migraines) My previous doctors had told me they could do nothing and that I should just learn to deal with the pain - even if it was seriously interfering with my life/work/ability to function normally. Doctor Fleishman took a long time to talk to me, and offered to test a treatment. Within a week my migraines were gone!! Needles to say, has been a life changer for me. I can only recommend dr. Fleishman!
