What People Say About Dr. Mark Fishman, DO
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Fishman and the staff are courteous and timely with appointments. One of the best Dr. experiences I have ever had. My primary Dr. recommended him for my back problems. He was a great listener, meticulous and genuinely caring. Because of his experience and guidance I received for the cortisone shots procedure, I am truly feeling so much better than I have over the past year. I am able to be active with very limited restrictions. I highly recommend Dr. Fishman for any spine related injury or soreness.

I would just like to thank Dr. Mark Fishman and all the staff at S.F. Spine. From the first day that I arrived, I was treated with great care and diagnosed quickly for my severe sciatica pain. Under Dr. Fishman's care, along with Eddie and the gang in Physical Therapy, I am now pain free. Very professional, understanding, and still able to laugh and have fun doing PT. From the girls at the front desk and the nurses, thank you so much for all your help. Top notch and 5 stars all around. I would highly recommend them!

My husband (79) and I (77) are both patients of Dr. Fishman. He is treating my back pain on a regular basis with great results. He has saved my husband's life by prescribing a CT scan which revealed a brain bleed based on his findings. The CT scan showed that brain surgery was necessary. Surgery was done immediately and he is presently on the mend. We both agree that Dr. Fishman's knowledge, bed-side manner, and caring are superb. His staff is very pleasant and efficient.

After suffering with lower back and sciatica pain for approximately 6 months, Dr. Fishman helped to alleviate most of my discomfort. When medication and physical therapy failed, he suggested Facet Injections along the spine. Relief was almost immediate - within 24 hours. Dr. Fishman is a most competent physician. He has exemplary medical expertise and outstanding bedside manner - both which are reassuring to his patient! Highly recommended!!

I have been seeing Dr. Fishman for over a year now and I am very pleased with the services I receive from him and his staff. He has diagnosed me with a hamstring tear that has been plaguing me for almost 2 years now. What I like about Dr. Fishman the most is that he did not give up me until he got to the bottom of what was causing the pain. After being properly diagnosed, I was able to receive the needed treatment for a speedy recovery. May God continue to bless Dr. Fishman!????

I was fortunate to be able to locate Dr. Fishman at his practice in Miramar when my lower back pain flared up after a few years; he is very knowledgeable, always listens and is very compassionate; he always shows interest and concern; he suggested physical therapy and after each session I definitely felt improvement. I only have wonders to say about Dr. Fishman when asked how is my back feeling. His staff is professional and accommodating. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Dr. Fishman to anyone!

Dr. Fishman has an exceptionally compassionate manor. When explaining an xray or MRI he used words that showed he was very respectful of how I recieved information regarding changes due to aging. It was so touching. That was a first for me. He was very mindful of all that was important to me in a Physician. My trust level was high and I felt very comfortable. I am a healthcare professional also. I highly recommend him to anyone and will!
