Absolutely the most caring and personable Dr. I have ever seen. Dr. Fishman is very knowledgeable and explains in detail his diagnosis and the prognosis for me. Dr. Fishman is relentless in his efforts to make my life better by the use of medication, noninvasive outpatient procedures and therapy. Do yourself a favor, let Dr. Fishman help you and I promise you wont be disappointed as he will take the time to go over his testing, listen to your concerns and most impressive personally follow up.

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 always recommend him to family and friends who are looking for a specialist in his field. Very trustworthy!

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.
in Miramar, FL |
Dr. Fishman is very nice and takes the time to explain everything in simple terms that can be understood by all!

.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

Dr. Fishman is one of the best in his profession. He makes you feel at ease and treats you like he's known you for years. His knowledge and recommendations proved to be beneficial and cured me of my lower back pain, something other doctors have tried and failed at. I recommend anyone with any issues with back pain go see him immediately. He will change your life.

Always pleasant, always reassuring, kind, soft spoken and always ensures the patients understand the diagnosis and treatment. At least in my case and those I have had the pleasure of speaking with that have seen Dr. Fishman. I recommend his services to any I kmow that has issues within his area of expertise. I can truly say that Dr. Fishman has my full respect and trust. He is a blessing to his patients.
in Weston, FL |
Amazing Doctor... I visited Dr. Fishman originally because I started to experience a REALLY bad pain that radiated down my left leg and around my knee. I literally could not walk for weeks the pain was so bad. Dr. Fishman diagnosed me after carefully listening to my symptoms and running several tests followed by an MRI. It turned out I had a herniation of the L4 L5 disc and it was going to take some physical therapy. After just a few weeks I was pain free and back on my feet.
in Pembroke Pines, FL |
My experience with Dr. Fishman made me feel and know that I was going to get better under his care. He recommended me for rehab which is working well for me and I'm on my way to healing. He's through, shows care and concern and takes time to answer all of my questions. He is a wonderful doctor and I'll recommend him to all of my family and friends.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr M. Fishman is everything you'd want a medical provider to be. In my opinion he brings to the Patient's treatment a rare attribute which is the ability to convey his knowledge, understanding and assertiveness of his care which in turn and ultimately help to improve the Patient's health .

in Pembroke Pines, FL |
Dr. Fishman is a very wonderful doctor. He is very courteous and understanding. Takes time to explain things to you. Does not rush you and takes time to answer. He even called me on the phone to explain a procedure that I was apprehensive about having. The procedure was quick and painless and I can sit and walk without pain. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know that has back problems.
