I only saw Dr. Fischbach for a few short months but he is great! Very caring, listens and doesn't rush. You can tell he loves his job and cares for his patients. He's also very old school and knows his stuff. If you don't understand he will take the time to explain. I would definitely go back to him if needed. He also always has a smile on his face, which can help with the bad days! :)

I have been a patient of Dr. Fischbach for about half a year now. What compelled me to write this review was the fact that to me Dr. Fischbach is a very attentive and caring person. After working with me a for a few months, we were able to determine that my original diagnosis was incorrect and really I was taking medicine that wasn't helping me as much as it should have been. We are still working to get to the best point, but I am so happy to (finally) visit such a wise and helpful doctor.

Cold, Callous, and very evidently uncaring. Someone who should have never entered the field of human psychology.

I am currently in treatment Dr. Fischbach, undergoing medication changes for the first time in 12 years, which is a terrifyingly experience. Dr. Fischbach is respectful and listens. He regularly says, "we'll get through this together" and I feel he actually means it. He is old fashioned (hand writes notes and only takes checks) and is not warm and and fuzzy, so he may not be a good fit for someone seeing a psychiatrist for the first time. However, he knows his stuff and I trust and recommend him

No other doctor could make a diagnosis, but Dr. Fischbach was able to in the first visit. I have felt better than I have in years. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Fischbach cares about getting the best mental health and quality of life for his patients. He knows all the medications, including the new ones. He's not afraid to treat, if potential benefits outweigh risks. For example I am treated for ADHD in addition to bipolar, even though ADHD medications can complicate bipolar. It saved my job, and I am still stable with bipolar.

Dr. Fischbach helped me with medication to overcome depression and panic disorder. Each visit is a learning experience because we talk about how the medications work to help me. I feel so much better. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed summer like I did this year. I'm grateful that I chose to visit Dr. Fischbach and to trust him to help me feel whole after years of trying on my own.

Amazing Doctor takes his take to help you as much as possible. A+++

Had to wait over an hour after my scheduled appointment to be seen. He rushed me through a bunch of questions and was not respectful of my request to not take more medication (I've been stable for over a year on my current meds). I have heard a few similar stories, including one in which he misdiagnosed a patient and prescribed her some very strong medication.

I have seen multiple psychiatrists in the East Pittsburgh area in the past, and Dr. Fischbach is the best. His expertise in diagnosis and treatment has resulted in incredibly positive changes in my mental health. I started to see Dr. Fischbach for problems with anxiety and panic attacks, and within the first two months of treatment, I was able to start to manage and cope with my disorders for the first time in my life.
Pittsburgh, PA |
Routinely late for appointments. I just stopped going to him because at the last visit, I was waiting for over 30 minutes. He actually called me after his previous appointment left to tell me I had missed the appointment; I was in the waiting room at the time he called me and 30 minutes before that. He blamed me for not sitting in a more visible area. He also said I needed to pay him for a no-show appointment. I had to pull out my phone to show him I called him and re-scheduled two days before.

I began to describe my experience but 500 characters isn't enough space to give a meaningfully specific description.

Dr Fischbach is a rare gem. I've been with him for twenty years now and has been able to keep my illness under check. He talks quietly and calmly. Very intelligent, this guy knows his stuff. Very old fashioned , no secretary, answers his own calls and keeps all his notes handwritten in your file. Very unique, dependable and listens to you as he observes what your troubles are.

I had a lot of trouble sleeping and repitive thinking. I couldn't fall asleep until every item on my list was completed. My family always just accepted that's the way I was and told me I was just a type A personality. Hesitantly, after lack of sleep and not being able to enjoy myself with family and friends, I decided to call Dr. Fishbach's office. He has a very calming personality, talks very quietly and has a serene personality. I appreciated his feedback.
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Psychiatrists are impossible to find in Pittsburgh, but not only did Dr. Fischbach make an appointment within a week, but he also found a treatment for my social anxiety almost immediately, to the point where I went from hiding in a hotel room to fielding multiple job offers over the course of a few months. Granted, past performance is not indicative of future results - but he changed my life.
