Dr. Fishman Says:

Because neurologists deal with the entire nervous system, I treat many types of patients, including those with significant psychiatric illness. The last group are always a challenge, and sometimes, hard to please. I take my job seriously. I take my patients seriously. I take my oath to do no harm seriously. Giving patients what they "demand" or read on google is not always good medicine.

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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fishman for about a year now. I suffer from headaches and he has been working with me to get them under control, He is a very patient and kind doctor and I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a good Neurologist.
