I have been seeing Dr. Fishman at Integrated Neurology Services for over 6 years for migraines. The first time I saw him, I had a migraine that had been constant for 3 weeks that would not go away with any treatment. My first referral was to another facility that had previously seen me for an unrelated childbirth issue but they would not provide an appointment for 3 months, even when I expressed my level of pain. Dr. Fishman's office scheduled me for the following week and were extremely apologetic that they couldn't see me earlier. Dr. Fishman listens to what I have to say and changes the treatment based on our discussions. We've tried several different techniques and treatments, all of which have provided relief. When side effects were undesirable, we changed the course of action, after discussing everything. I have never felt rushed in his office. I have felt listened to and consulted for my treatment. I feel like Dr. Fishman cares for his patients and works to heal them.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Fishman for several years. He was able to quickly diagnose my condition and recommend a treatment plan. I felt that I was given a voice in decisions to be made. On a personal note, he is caring, takes his time and I never feel that he is in a rush to get to the next patient. I highly recommend Dr. Fishman. His staff has always been extremely kind and help, both at the Lorton and Alexandria offices.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fishman for 11 years now. He is very knowledgable and makes sure my medicine is working through bloodwork and yearly checkups. It's easy to get an appointment with him in the event of emergencies. I am impressed with his professionalism and dedication to good service.

Short and to the point. Expectation I could not keep. Asked me to wrap my elbows in towels or some likely wrap. That it would take 2 weeks to change my habit of bending my elbows completely. I have pain in my upper arms when bended. My concentration span does not take me this long.

i have been suffering from vertigo and neuropathy for over 8 years. He couldnt have kicked me out of his office faster as he stated that he does not work with patients on disability. He said he wouldnt charge me for the visit so he earned 1 star for that courtesy.

I have been seeing Dr. Fishman @ Integrated Neurology Solutions for about 8 years now. I have chronic migraines that had become extremely debilitating and more severe as time went on. They became so frequent that I was suffering from severe migraines about 3-5 days of every week. Since the migraines 1st began in my 20's, I have been to countless doctors, specialists, ER's, had missed days of work, spent vacations cooped up in a dark hotel room, and have taken literally EVERY migraine Rx and pain

Dr. Fishman was incredible. He was friendly, kind and most importantly...diagnosed and fixed my migraines. He spent time with me, engaged with me, and gave me insight (and say) in health care options. I generally avoid doctors, but I would have no issues visiting Dr. Fishman for any needs. He was wonderful. On a side note - his office was wonderful. They worked with me to get me in as fast as possible, and called me with earlier appointments to get me seen more quickly.

The staff has gone out of their way to get an appointment for me and assist with insurance, if I could give them a 10 I would. I am a new patient for Dr. Fishman. I found him to be very thorough in reviewing my history and explaining answers to my questions. Dr. Fishman has a very calm quiet demeanor which I found very reassuring during my visits. I was very sorry to read some of the negative reviews, as they did not reflect my experience at all.

Doctor is seemingly knowledgeable and treated me for years for constant headaches. He recommended Botox and it helped somewhat. However, the office and billing were infuriating. They screwed up my bill with the insurance and it took me a year to resolve, and they never even apologized for the error. When I got a new neurologist it turned out Dr. Fishman was giving me too low a dose and he never mentioned it to me. How strange to not discuss the finer points of your patient's treatment with them!

"Literally the worst,most degrading,belittling,rude, ignorant,and pretentious doctor I've ever met.Awful bedside manner, care, medical knowledge, practice, and treatment.Disrespectful and cruel. Tried to make me feel stupid/crazy saying my symptoms were all in my head, 1st question he asked me if I've been sexually abused,and said I should just see a psychiatrist, when I actually was suffering from and finally diagnosed with Lyme disease,fibromyalgia,and spondylitis. Do NOT go to this jerk ever.

Although I do believe that Dr. fishman wishes to do no harm, my experience was less than pleasant. During testing, he talked to the nurse about a more interesting patient he had just seen while not explaining the needles he was using with my testing. I felt like I was a less interesting headache case but worst was I was given a prescription for 5x the dosage oral steroids I was supposed to without an apology later after realizing the prescription had been incorrect. I had called in very ill.

Seriously the best neuro I've ever been to. He takes his time with you. Listens to all of your concerns and asks questions about your life outside of why you're there to see him. Truly caring. He takes all the time YOU need. You don't feel rushed out of the exam room. Only downside is that this leads to long wait times, but it's worth it for the level of care Dr. Fishman gives.
