Dr. Angela was truly lovely. She has fantastic bedside manners. The office was pretty busy but when she was in the room with me discussing my case she made me feel as if she doesn’t have anyone waiting on her. Shealso talked to me about a wide range of options as opposed to just pushing me to the most expensive option. I was very pleased with my experience and highly recommend her!

This is my 2nd time to this office. I saw Dr. Fishman a few years ago and then Dr. Canady today. It is an unusual experience for DC, because literally EVERYONE on their staff is nice. Both doctors took extra timeto sit with me - and both of them actually listened to me. It was almost surprising, since nowadays doctors are so quick with patients. I feel like I'm in great hands and I trust that they are going to stick with me until we figure out what's going on with my body!

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 appreciatethat he ended our time by saying, "Welcome to the practice."

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 rushme 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.
