Verified Patient Reviews
Businesslike, through and complete. Prompt, did not jump to fast conclusions, and good plan for follow up.
Extremely professional from the minute you walk into his office. The doctor's attentive, listens intently, evaluates and gives you a peace knowing that you are in good hands.
Dr. Fishman was caring. He answered all of my questions and put me at ease. He was thorough in his explanation, but didn't talk dowm to me. I recommend him.
He seemed a little rushed. May have been because of a full waiting room. Otherwise, very professional and highly recommended.
He took to explain things
This was my new patient visit. Dr. was right on time, a good listener, personable, and thorough for my exam and explanations. As a Doctor myself, I have a high standard level of critique of health professionals. Based on this initial visit, I do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Fishman.
Extremely knowledgeable, Very compassionate, Listened to my concerns. Dr. Fishman established a conservative plan to manage & track my Kidney Stone.
Very thorough exam. Let me ask questions until I was satisfied I got all the answers.
Was very informative and got to do the surgery the same day as the consultation. Very thorough in his work and explained everything to me while performing the procedure. I recommend him to anyone!
Great visit. Doctor James explained exactly what he was doing while he was doing it. I recommend getting a consultation first..

Very Professional and very thoroughl Great Doctor so far
Dr. Fishman put me at ease immediately. He helped clarify some potential issues and showed that we was very much aware of the newest advances in urology. A+++++ physician. No wonder he is so highly regarded.
"I was not impresssed. Dr. Fishman only see me in 2 minutes." This is what my husband said. My husband is the patient but I was the one who found Dr. James Fishman in the internet. And I was the one who made the appointment with Dr. James Fishman for my husband. After confirming that my husband has kidney stone from our former PCP, he advised us to see a urologist. I googled and found Dr. James Fishman and one other urologist. When I read the reviews of Dr. Fishman, they were impressive that is why I made the appointment. I also learned from the reviews that I can make appointment through Zocdoc. So I book the appointment and after a few minutes, got a confirmation right away. I was so glad that I was able to get an appointment so soon because my husband is in pain due to his kidney stones. When we get to the place, we waited for less than 30 minutes before we were seen by the doctor. Dr. Fishman came to the room and told my husband that he had stones in his right kidney, left kidney, in his ureter and bladder. He said he will send us a 24hr urine test. He then said that he will be back and left. After a few minutes, a staff came in and explain to us about the 24hr urine test. We did not see the doctor again which was sort of disappointing because there was no explanation what we should do and what is expected to be done. It was like we were left with many unanswered questions in our mind. In the reviews, I have read that Dr. Fishman has a great bedside manner but our impression was different. This is our experience with the doctor and it depends on Zocdoc if you will post this review or not.
Dr Fishman has been great the two visits I've had with him. He was very professional, explained everything clearly and was patient in answering any questions.

Great doctor, super nice staff and office. I walked in and was seen within minutes. Dr. Fishman was thorough and explained things well.
Made the apmt at zodoc which was great. When I call they said there was no time available but get in thru the zodoc. He was kind and took the time to explain my options with the kidney stone and what was our next step
Dr. Fishman was very responsive since the day the appointment was set on Zocdoc, helping direct my concerns. At the appointment, he took his time to go over with me what he thought may be going on, all though we did not come up with anything conclusive, he was able to direct to which step I should take next. Thank you Dr. Fishman
Dr Fishman was excellent, very helpful!!
Dr. Fishman did not tell us anything different than what we had already heard from an emergency room doctor and that we had researched online.
I arrived early for my appointment, and not only did I not have to wait until my appointment time (or after), I was actually welcomed to the exam room EARLY! Dr. Fishman arrived shortly thereafter. He was very well-informed; and, he answered my numerous questions very clearly and more completely than previous specialists. After assuring that all of my questions & concerns were addressed, he reviewed a methodical & practical treatment plan. I found Dr. Fishman to be VERY knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate, and professional.
Dr Fishman seemed knowledgeable, hope I get well soon.
Professional and efficient staff. DR Fishman is excellent.
Excellent doctor that provided a detailed explanation. He answered all of my questions and put me at ease.
There was quite a bit of information to cover, but Dr. Fishman took his time and covered everything in a manner I could understand.
Good initial consultation. Dr. Fishman was pleasant, communicative and did not seem rushed like most doctors these days. I am pleased with my decision so far.
Great service Thank you so much!
Made the appointment on line just hours before the actual appointment. Surprised anything was available. Dr. Fishman personally called a few minutes after making the appointment stating that he was leaving town and had a very full schedule so it could be a long wait. Wanted to make sure I was OK with that. The wait was only a few minutes. Great experience. Great bedside manner. Highly recommended.
Fast, friendly and knowledgeable. Very impressed.
Dr. Fishman was incredibly fast but very thorough. He listened to everything I said and obviously knows what he's doing. I would definitely recommend him!
Knowledgable and smart- a DIRECT doctor!
Was fast i d not have to wait at all very happy.

Dr Fishman is great but I prefer the office staff in his Phoenix location over the Glendale office but I would definitely recommend this doctor.
Dr. Fishman is a real caring and professional. I do recommend him for your urology needs and professional medical opinion.
He was exact and let me know what I needed.
Immediately showed an interest in and empathy for my circumstances, and educated me on the wisdom of an alternate course of action to what I had requested.
I was thoroughly impressed. He really seems like he wants to fix the problem rather than just push me through the system.
It was all good
Dr Fishman was absolutely professional and very thorough in answering any questions or concerns I had. I recommend him very highly.
Very informative, professional and answered all question leaving no doubt
To the point and explained all that I needed.
We are very fortunate that Dr. Fishman is my husband's urologist and surgeon. He is excellent. So professional. Extremely knowledgeable and competent. And it's never difficult to get an appointment when there is a situation that requires seeing Dr. Fishman ASAP. He explains everything carefully. My husband has had surgery with Dr. Fishman twice, and each time Dr. Fishman has met with me following surgery and explained the results carefully in layman's language.
Loved him. He did not waste any time. He wanted to make sure that everything was covered in detail. Chatted a few minutes after the appointment. Give out his email address in case something comes up and you need to get hold of him. I will see him again if I have future problems.
Very professional. Exceeded my expectations. Listened to my concerns and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Excellent. I don't normally see male doctors and he made me feel right at ease.
Very prompt, thorough, and professional.
Cannot believe how easy of a procedure my vasectomy turned out to be! Painless and fast! Dr. Fishman was very calming during the whole procedure.
It was fine. My first visit was good and he answered my question. He took a good approach to my problem and I was satisfied.
Dr. Fishman was smart, courteous, concise, and listened to my concerns and answered my questions. He ordered a follow-up test and told me that I would not have to come in for another appointment if the test was negative. Overall a very positive experience!
Excellent doctor! Great experience.
Dr Fishman is a gem. Both my wife and I were convinced that we were in very good hands shortly after he walked into the exam room. You find out shortly that he genuinely cares about the feelings of each and every patient. He has excellent credentials and a great deal of experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Fishman to anyone in need of a high end urologist.
