My experience overall was a great one. The techs and med assistance were all fairly young. Two beautiful techs started having a convo about ahving drinks and thoting in city island. I was shocked and pleased how open they were. I found it to be a family atmosphere. Even though this was my first time here I felt like a part of the family. Everyone was warm and welcoming. Best experience at a doctor I ever had.

The most horrible experience in my life. The office had more than 35 patientes not enough chairs to seat. The office attendant all were disrespecful. I will never ever recomend this professional neither this office. Evidently they overbooked with regular patientes but the doczoc has no priority at all. This office is a bad joke. Never neverever come here.

I waited for about 40 minutes, and the doctor saw me for about 3. He didn't say much and wasn't very courteous or friendly. I would not go to this office again.

Staff was pleasant ,professional and polite. Assistants did 95%of the information intake and diagnostic procedures. The doctor spent 3-6 minutes in personal contact .he spent the remaining few minutes in the exam room reading the computer screen and directing the assistants the next procedure prior to walking out of the room 2xs . He initially entered his operatory saying his last name as he sat down in front of his computer without ever turning to face me. It felt as though I was on an assembly factory line. When I was dismissed he did look towards me enquiring if I was content with my current eyeglasses.Dr Fishman said goodbye by telling me to make another appointment for this November.

Didn't spend much time with the actual doctor. Techs were unorganized, chatty and very unprofessional. It was like they were having a big party in there. Doctor wasn't very informative as everything was a big rush but I waited for so long after I was seen to get further testing. Total time with dr 10 min, total time in office 2 hours and 3 min. Would not recommend.

His assistants brought me through all of the pre-tests using the machines. The actual time spent with the doctor was less than 5 min. He was not approachable and kinda rushed the appointment. His assistants spoke with me more than the doctor did. I didn't even bother to book a follow up which I needed to. I found another doctor instead.

Amazing, caring doctor. Has tremendous knowledge of glaucoma. Very thorough, reviewed my history and evaluated my condition from multiple angles. His small office is fully electronic. His staff is courteous and highly trained. Very personal attention was given. I will be coming back and bringing my mom along. Such a gem of a find in the Bronx!

He did pretty much nothing. It was the other staff members that did majority of the work. However, most of them were too busy talking about their weekend or the pictures of themselves on FB. I snapped like 20 pics of his employees just playing around the office. You will have to do your paperwork more than once because they don't have the Zoc doc software to download the paperwork. and be ready to wait because they over book. I'm not saying it horrible, but i was very unorganized and i didn't feel a connection with the Dr. at all.
