Dr Fiman has been treating me for many years. I am so fortunate that I found him. He's the greatest! I am especially thankful to the care he has given my daughter who was 15 when she started seeing him for Crohn's Disease. She is now 22 and has been in remission for two years all thanks to Dr Fiman. Highly recommend him for GI needs

(1) office overcharged me for consult; took 8 mths to obtain refund (2) Colonoscopy Report had 2 errors; took multiple calls to obtain corrected report (3) despite dr/facility being in-network and UHC confirming 2x procedure covered 100%, Fiman/facility used out-of-network providers for which I was billed $1,500+. Never would I recommend Fiman/his admin facilities/staff. Plenty of good Gastroenterologists who have efficient office staff and who use in-network providers.

Dr. Fiman has been my doctor for over 5 years. He is excellent and very up-to-date on the latest research for Crohn's Disease and other digestive tract issues. I moved from the Houston area and I travel 3 hours to come back to see him. Having a competent, knowledgeable, and personable physician is well worth the drive. I appreciate his frankness in explaining my illness in terms I can understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone searching to find the best doctor in his field.

I have never seen a GI before. He was friendly and made me feel at ease talking about embarrassing issues. I know he hears stuff like this all the time, but I was mortified to discuss my stool - frequency, consistency, etc...Dr Fiman and his staff are professionals. They make you feel like every question is valid. He took his time to address all my cnocerns

Dr. Fiman's Care Philosophy

I believe in a patient-first approach to medicine. My job is to educate my patients so that they can make the best decision about their own bodies. I am there to help any way I can, as a patient advocate as well as a treating physician.

Dr. Fiman says...

Dr. Fiman has been treating patients with gastrointestinal disorders for over 25 years.  He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology, with 2 additional recertifications in Gastroenterology. He is a Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology, and a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.  He is a past president of the Texas Gulf Coast Gastroenterology Society. He is also a former United States Naval officer, with a rank of Lieutenant Commander.  He has also been listed in The Best Doctors in America for over 10 years.  

He has more than 500 patients with inflammatory bowel disease in his practice, one of the largest patient populations with these disorders in the Houston area, outside of the Medical Center.  He is one of the few adult gastroenterologists who will see adolescent patients (age 14 ) with these disorders.  He also serves on the Medical Advisory Board of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, Gulf Coast chapter.

Dr. Fiman says...

He has performed over 15,000 colonoscopy exams and over 7,000 upper gastrointestinal endoscopies, and his performance on colonoscopies grades out in the top tier of gastroenterologists across the United States.

He has also successfully treated hundreds of patients with symptomatic hemorrhoids with the CRH-O'Regan hemorrhoid banding device, which allows patients to have their hemorrhoids treated in his office in a quick and pain-free manner (some mild discomfort can occur, but there should be no pain with this procedure), and allows them to return to work or full activity in a manner of hours.
