He's the best
My actual appointment with Dr. Fishman was pretty good. He was initially extremely welcoming and conversational. His office was extremely cluttered and disorganized, which didn't give a great impression, but the practiced moved soon thereafter, so that may have been part of it. For a while as we talked, Dr. Fishman was very willing to answer my questions. However, once he covered what it seemed he considered the basics, he quickly became frustrated with my questions, and he seemed dismissive of my remaining concerns. None of that would have been a big deal if it weren't for my subsequent treatment by office administrators. First, I attempted twice to schedule a follow-up visit here on zoc-doc. Both times, the appointment was cancelled, and I was notified by zocdoc, but NOT by the office, nor was I given an explanation (I later found out when I called that this was due to the move). Today, I called for a new prescription because I misplaced the box and physical Rx for one of my creams and didn't know if I had refills, or if my pharmacy would honor them if I didn't have the Rx number. The receptionist was EXTREMELY rude and very obviously put out. Before she even attempted to check, she stated that I needed to tell her what the Rx was, as they wouldn't necessarily know. I clarified, "What do you mean? You don't have a record of what he prescribed to me?!" and she sighed, "well, hopefully...". In the end, she found it and told me what it was, and that I had three refills, so I should just call my pharmacy and ask for a refill. I said, "Even though I don't have the Rx number?" and she said, again clearly exasperated, "Call your pharmacy." I will not be going back here, as not only do I feel I was treated very poorly, but the overall impression I was left with is one of laziness and disorganization, so I no longer trust in Dr. Fishman's care.
Dr. Fishman was great at listening and walked me through each step of the process to figure out what could be causing my allergic reactions. I walked away feeling more knowledgeable and assured that all would be okay. I also appreciate that he ended our time by saying, "Welcome to the practice."
I have been seen by Dr. Fishman and Dr. Canady. Both are extremely friendly, good listeners, and ask the right questions. The support staff are also very nice.
Dr. Fishman is the best.
I actually saw Dr. Cannady who is in his office. She was excellent. Attentive to what i was telling her and thoughtful about what she was suggesting the problem may be. I would go back.
I saw Dr. Angela Canady, who listened and asked lots of questions and had a great bedside manner. The nurses and other professionals in the office were also friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Canady was fabulous and I would highly recommend their office!!
My visit to this office was excellent. The information given was extremely helpful. This appointment exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend!
Funny thing. I did not see Dr. Fishman. He does not have hours on thursday so I saw Dr. Canady. So please attribute the above feedback to her for HER wonderful care.
Professional, friendly admin staff. comptetent, pleasant medical staff. My appt was at 10:30, and I was seen at 10:30. Dr. F. consulted with me twice during my time there, and listened well. Will recommend!
He is great! I highly recommend him!
I felt that he was telling me something rehearsed as if he had mesmerized a script. He did not like questions and he gave me a lot of papers to read.
Dr Fishman was very knowledgeable about my allergies including foods, medications and environmental. He acknowledged my concerns and alleviated many of them. He is quirky which I liked. He makes a personal connection with his patient's and his staff. I would highly recommend him and the office experience.
Dr Fishman was very friendly, informative and professional. It was my first visit and I couldn't believe I was called back to see the doctor right away. Zero wait time in DC is almost unheard of. Dr Fishman did not rush me through the results and instead patiently answered all of the questions I had about my newly discovered allergies! Thank you, Dr Fishman.
He was fantastic!! I had never been to an allergist and was a bit nervous with the tests, however his whole office was incredibly warm and friendly. They walked me through the whole process and were great.
Dr. Fishman was great - took time to talk with me 1 on 1 before doing tests for allergies/asthma, and took time to fully explain the diagnosis and treatment options afterwards.
Excellent experience and exceeded expectations!
Laid back and friendly, does not try to overshoot or upsell. Friendly staff and a quick visit.
My visit was its usual positive experience. Dr. Fishman is someone whom I like and trust -- enormously. The same goes for his staff.
Excellent, thanks for help setting it up.
would definitely recommend Dr. Fishman to anyone in need of an allergist. This was my first appointment and it was an excellent experience.
