Dr Fishman treated me two years ago for back pain (bulging Disc) not one problem or pain since. I put my trust in him 100% . I am revisiting his office for a new aliment which I know he will help me.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr Fishman is kind, compassionate, super easy going and easy to talk to. I have chronic incapacitating back pain and have received excellent advice and treatment. Life is so much better! His staff is polite and professional; they always answer the phone and schedule my appointments easily.
in Plantation, FL |
Dr. Fishman has an incredible medical practice that has really helped. He and his office staff have helped me manage a very painful back injury with great success. Dr. Fishman himself is very kind and knowledgeable, and I only have positive things to say about him. The rest of the office staff is also fantastic, from the physical therapists, Marcus and Eddie, to the front office staff, like Maribel -- just a great overall practice. Highly recommended if you're in need!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Fishman has made a positive difference in my life. He is a caring outstanding physician. He has my highest recommendation.
in Plantation, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr Fishman for many many years. Dr Fishman has great bedside manner and always takes time to actually assess my back/neck pain. He is great at giving suggestions to treatments he feels will help and takes the time to make sure I always understand what the procedure is and possible outcomes. I trust that Dr Fishman is always looking out for my best interest as his patient. Dr Fishmans office is clean, modern, and front desk staff have always been polite.

East Windsor, NJ |
We are from NJ and were spending time with our daughter and family when my back began to hurt so badly I could not walk with out assistance. I was looking for a physiatrist who could help me manage the pain. Dr. Fishman was outstanding, he listened to what I had to say and ordered an MRI after looking at my x-rays. I had my MRI within 2 days of seeing Dr. Fishman. Within a week I was scheduled for my injections. Within 10 days I was able to walk without pain. Thank You Dr. Fishman
in Pembroke Pines, FL |
My daughter and I were in a car accident in December 2016. Until we found Dr. Fishman in February, 2017, we suffered with injuries that another orthopedic doctor didn't even acknowledge or find. He & associate, Dr. Romero, WERE/ARE FANTASTIC! Both doctors addressed our conditions with personal attention, care and concern. Their office staff is superior and we cannot thank Marcos and Eddie enough for their patience during therapy. THERE IS NO OTHER ORTHOPEDIC OFFICE WE WOULD CONSIDER! 10 STARS

i was in extreme pain down my right leg when a friend who had the same problem recommended Dr. Fishman. i was given an appointment the next day. He took x-rays and examined me and asked all the right questions. i had gone in with an fixed idea of what i wanted done (the same as was done for my friend) however due to medicine (he explained) that could not be done. He had me go to rehab and much to my surprise i was without pain in 3 weeks.
Hollywood, FL |
Dr. Fishman is very passionate about his work. He listens to your issues. You don't feel rushed at all. When he explains his diagnosis you can understand his explanation. He even showed me a model of my issue. I knew exactly what to expect during certain procedures. Dr. Fishman will not prescribe or do anything just because the book says to. I felt very comfortable working with him. His physical therapy staff is awesome too. Thank you for making me feel better.
in Miramar, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr Fishman for over 10 years. He has been instrumental in my total recovery from back surgery and being healthy and energetic. He has great bedside manners, the ones you rarely see nowadays…. He is confident in sharing with you good or bad news and help you every step of the way to get you back to where you need or want to be. I consider myself a very picky patient and he supersedes my expectations each and every time. I love his new office too!!
in Davie, FL |
I've been seeing Dr. Fishman for some time at his past location and just saw him at his new location. I would say hands down Dr. Fishman is the nicest doctor I have ever met, caring, and thoughtful, and very knowledgeable. The new location is gorgeous and he seems very comfortable there now in his new surroundings. He has sent me to other specialists making sure I get the care that I need. I recommend him highly to anyone who needs a good orthopedic doctor.

I cannot say enough about Doctor Fishman. He is a kind compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to his patients like old time doctors used to do. When I first went to see him I was having tremendous back pain. He listened to all my complaints of pain and was able to diagnose what was causing the pain, what my options were and suggested what he thought would be the best for me. I highly recommended doctor Fishman.

The care I have received from Dr. Fishman in the past 10 years is exceptional. He spends as much time as I need to explain my condition and for him to provide/explain available options to remedy.

For 3 years been taking meds for Neuropathy, but my back not getting any better. Decided to seek 2nd opinion, and Dr Fishman was suggested. He has the best attitude and manner I have seen in a doctor in a long time. He discovered I have major arthritis and inflammation in between my vetrebras and we decided on injection. I am 2 weeks out, and for the first time in over year not having to wake up to back pain. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr Fishman for several years now and he always makes me feel very comfortable. He cares for his patients. He is never in a hurry and always has time to listen which is hard to find a DR who does these days. He takes his time to explain different alternatives for medical treatments and will recommend the best one for you. I always recommend him to family and friends who are looking for a specialist in his field. Very trustworthy!

in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
I have been going to Dr. Fishman for almost ten years. He is compassionate, concerned, and caring. He is always warm and kind and ready to listen to your health concerns, and the reason for your visit. He is an extremely good listener, who takes the time to examine before making his recommendations. This is not a physician who readily hands out prescriptions, however he does believe in therapy and will make that referral if needed. I sincerely hope he will be around for many years to come.

.An exceptionally knowledgeable, attentive and caring physician, he has a personal manner that engenders trust and confidence. In spite of having to deal with my chronic back issues, he takes each visit seriously, remembers personal details, and works with me to encourage progress in coping with pain and regaining lost strength. I am grateful for his quiet persistence as he has led me to a degree of health I would not thought possible two years ago.

I was experiencing lower back pain that was affecting my quality of life. I tried everything; physical therapy, stretching, strengthening, massages, anti inflammatory medication, but nothing relieved the pain. Dr. Fishman gave me an injection and 90% of the pain was gone the next day. If you are experiencing back pain, I would highly recommend a visit to Dr. Fishman!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I saw Dr Fishman for significant pain running down both legs and in the buttocks. Dr. Fishman is very knowledgeable and experienced in pain management and in helping a person get to be pain free, as well as, patient, understanding, spends the time needed with you and never had to wait more than 10 minutes to see the doctor, he is on time! I am almost entirely pain free. March 31, 2016
