This office is SCAM!! It's a "vision center" so has both an eye doctors office and optical. I went to Dr. Fishman's office to get an eye exam and prescription for contact lenses. I was called to the back and saw 3 Techs/Medical Assistants before seeing the doctor. They did what seemed to be usual eye exams as I've done these many times before at other facilities. I found it weird that not ONE person asked the reason for my visit (not even the doctor himself) but I assumed that this was because they saw the reason for my visit on ZocDoc. Once the doctor came in the room he took a look at my eyes and told me to go to the optical in the office and come back in six months. At this point I was confused because he didn't mention anything about my contact prescription and since he didn't bother asking the reason why I was there, I decided to volunteer the information and tell him that I'm there for contact lenses. He told me "they'll take care of that at the optical." When I walked over to the optical the young lady told me the price of purchasing contact lenses if I purchase them there and that if I wanted a prescription to get my lenses outside of the office, the prescription would cost me also. I have worked in healthcare for almost 12 years and currently manage a very successful medical practice and have never heard of a doctor charging to write a prescription. I had already paid my copay and my insurance covered the office visit, so I didn't understand why I had to pay extra for a prescription??! It was just absurd. Seems like a huge scam to me and like they are double billing patients. They're basically charging patients for 2 visits on the same day. If that was the case, patients should be told this UP FRONT so that they can make an informed decision prior to getting an eye exam because I have no idea what the doctor and his techs even tested me for. I could've just gone to lens crafters for all of this. They should direct patients to the optical if there are two separate charges. My visit to this office was pointless. I will investigate further and file a complaint against them. What they are doing is not right!

it seems like all this man wants to do is sell eyeglasses. once he found out that that wasn't what I was therefore and that I just needed someone to give my son a thorough eye examination he basically dismissed me and my son didn't get the help that he needed.

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.

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.
