Dr. Fishman was a second opinion and we are so glad we did. He was very straight forward with regards to my surgery. (I had the same surgery 6 months prior with another physician) My husband and I felt immediate confidence in Dr. Fishman. I feel we made the best choice in choosing him.

Having this doctor do my neck fusion has left me disabled. He did everything he could to release me from his care without any compassion at all. Would never recommend him to anyone!
