Dr Fishkin was very thorough with his exam and diagnostic. He also was very patient to explain to me the different processes as they were taking place. He also took into consideration that I was working within the confines of aninsurance plan and didn't order any unnecessary treatments that would have to attract additional costs. Will definitely return for a future visit.

My fiancé is alway skeptical about doctors and appointments. He visited Dr. Fishkin to have his eye sight examined and address a few concerns and learn of his options. He was so pleased with the doctor and the staff. Check-in wassmooth and quick, and the staff was friendly. Dr. Fishkin was thorough, informative, took his time explaining and answering questions, and really made my fiancé feel comfortable with the whole experience. We highly recommend Dr. Fishkin.

Dr. Fishkin was very courteous and prompt. I didn't have to wait very long at all and he addressed all my concerns. As an engineer I really appreciated that all of the equipment he uses is very up-to-date and some machinesare absolutely amazing. Also loved the efficiency of his office staff. They are prompt to answer calls and emails and will email prescriptions quickly when necessary. Very convenient.

Heretofore, I ventured into NYC to see the "Top Docs" in the field of ophthamology due to significant vision challenges that the "average" eye doctor could not treat. Dr. Fishkin addressed my concerns in a compassionate and compressive manner.I am relieved to have found such an insightful and caring physician just minutes away from my home.
