in long beach |
Dr. Fishman is a very knowledgeable and sincere doctor. He takes his time to listen and observe your problem thoroughly. He takes time to share every detail which helps the patient not only understand but learn about their diagnosis. He gave me preventive and pain management techniques and supplies. He is not a eager doctor to go to surgery, he truly wants what is medically and naturally best for his patients.

Dr. Fishman says...

  • Utilizing the latest techniques and technology when performing surgeries we are able to take an individual approach and consider all aspects of our patient's life in order to provide the best outcome. With the use of minimally invasive incisions, Intra – Operative STEM CELL Therapy and precision driven techniques we are able to speed up the recovery process and minimize post-operative pain
  • We offer the Newest Generation of Orthotic technology and have created " Bio-Orthotics "  A Biomechanical theory created by Dr. Fishman has resulted in the next generation of custom molded orthotics. This specialized technique involves individual foot and ankle mechanical evaluations separating each foot and ankle into a separate entity. As a result of Dr. Fishman's casting technique there is a very minimal " breaking in " period resulting in rapid adaptation of the orthotic device and near instant relief of your foot ailments
