Don't come here if you are young. You will be looked upon as a waste of his time.

WORST bedside manner! Rude and has no empathy for patients. I would never recommend him to anyone I care about. Cold Fish.

Dr. Fish is one of the smartest doctors and finest men I have ever known. An injection into your eye is a most frightening experience and Dr. Fish has a calm and confident manner that makes this experience much more bearable. He has treated my macular degeneration for several years and I am grateful to say that his treatments have been very successful. His staff is kind and understanding and they keep the office running very efficiently, helping with appointments and health insurance issues.
