Dr. Fishman was awesome. He gave EXCELLENT explanations about Lyme disease and its effects. My son said he is now his favorite doctor -- the highest praise I have heard lately from my 13 year old!

Dr. Fishman is such an awesome superior physician. He spends time with you, never rushes, is open to listening and answering questions. I went in thinking I only had severe allergy problems and he figured out that Lyme and Babesia are probably at the bottom of it since a Z-Pac repeatedly made them better. He is the BEST!!!

Dr. Fishman is very knowledgable, friendly and patient. He takes time to listen and put together a treatment plan. He starts with the simplest plan and increases necessary medications only when more is needed. Fortunately, I have not needed a great deal of medication. The best knowledge I walked away with after a great deal of blood work had been completed, was that I am very gluten intolerant and that the gluten, when removed from my diet, decreased my Lyme's symptoms and made them manageable.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fishman for almost 6 years, during which time he has helped me both understand and begin my recovery from Lyme disease and the co-infections that came with it. He is extremely patient in explaining the results of lab reports as well as his reasons for choosing the recommended treatments. I cannot imagine a doctor being more diligent, helpful, and intelligent about my treatment. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Fishman has helped 4 members of my family. He cured one daughter of Chronic Fatigue after other doctors could neither diagnose or help her. He helped another daughter come back from Lyme disease so debilitating she was out of college for a year; she just finished her MA. He diagnosed my husband's gluten sensitivity. He has brought me back to functioning after a terrible case of Lyme disease. I always recommend him to friends; they share my deep respect and appreciation for him.
